Well, now that’s done! 247 infantry figures painted for the next diorama, a good number for the size of the base. As usual I feel it might be a bit of a squeeze- I’m yet to fit all the figures I have painted on a diorama. In the past I have shied away from the Scots as the painting of kilts was a little difficult back in the early days with the Airfix guys, but once I got hold of the Strelets figures they were so well done I had to include them . They turned out ok to me ( I don’t count myself as a great painter ) and once they are all in place my imperfections won’t be as obvious .
The figures are 99 percent Strelets with a few conversions thrown in for variety. The quality that they put into the ‘Scots and the British– Stand at Ease’ is to be commended and make it a lot easier to paint. I must add, that the tips I have picked up from others in regards to painting (as in giving them a final wash after painting) has greatly improved my work and to those I thank you. Now I’m just looking forward to putting it all together in the near future.
