Aaarrrggghhh! I hate fiddly details on 6mm figures!
I'm at that frustrating stage of painting these where all the bitty stuff needs to be painted - belts, cross straps, scabbards, cartridge pouches, etc.
Earlier today I'd done the hats and kepis (I actually did the kepis and one of the 6 hat colours last night).
I have just spent nearly 3 hours painting belts, cross-straps and bayonet scabbards on half of the figures. I guess tomorrow I'll be doing the other half.
I guess I'll just have to make it one tiny detail per day, now that I'm going to be back at work. Why, oh why, oh why did I decide to do the whole lot in one go?
In separate news, by the time most of you read Curt will have posted the Nostalgia bonus theme round entries on this blog. I think that my entry should be quite well received. I don't know if the voting for favourite entries will be open immediately - if it isn't don't forget to check back in later on and vote for whichever submissions you particularly liked.
EDIT: The posts and the poll are both up - click here to view them all.
