This kit was undercoated as usual with Army Painter Matt black whilst still on the sprues, I have a dedicated little spraying spot in the shed at the bottom of the garden and I now do all of the plastic stuff this way - still on the sprues - as I find it covers so much better with no missed areas. Some parts such as the 4 figures in this case are painted whilst still on the sprues then removed and assembled before sticking into the model. For the British Uniforms I used Vallejo' British Uniform' (there's a surprise!), followed by a Sepia ink wash, then a highlight once dry of the British Uniform/Khaki 50/50 mix. I'll stick to this formula and it should see the force painted up fairly quickly.
Next I'll paint the 4 figure command set (metal), and then I'll do the Dad's Army set before getting stuck into the plastic infantry box.
