Finished - 28mm WW2 Aussie Independent Company #2
And they're finished! I decided to do the first two steps on the bases last night (painting and washing) rather than working on the NGVR section. This morning I drybrushed the bases, matte varnished them and then added tufts.
Senior and Junior Leaders
SMGs, Bren, Sniper and Signaler
I think he'll make a rather nice "jump off point" for Chain of Command.
I also finished the re-basing on the previous senior leaders:
After doing the dry-brushing and airbrushing, I headed into town to do a bit of shopping. This is what I brought home:
The brushes (Winsor & Newton Series 7 sizes 2 and 0) were from London Graphic Centre. I was after a couple of size 1s as well, but they are out of stock. It appears that there is a nationwide shortage of those at the moment, but they should (hopefully) be back in stock soon.
The rest are from Dark Sphere (I had two £25 vouchers from my leaving gifts to spend). The 8th Army are going to be for Kokoda Trail militia. I also picked up a pack of Aussie scouts. They didn't have all the paints I was after, so I placed an order for those from SnM Stuff when I got home. I also placed an order with Warlord games for some 8th Army command and support weapons, two more Matildas and a couple more Stronty Dog packs.
This afternoon and evening I've been finishing the highlights and washes on the NGVR. I took a couple of pics before giving them a Klear coat:
I think they've come out quite nicely. I decided to go for a fairly pale colour for the khaki drill uniforms. I'll leave the basing until the Papuans are finished - I'll start work on them tomorrow.
