If you recall my Wednesday Workbench post, I did indeed finish them today!
|Platoon Sergeant, Lt, 2nd Lt plus rifleman|
60mm Mortar Squad
The HQ squad figures are all Crusader; the mortar squad are all Artizan apart from the kneeling chap with carbine which is Crusader.
And that is it (for now) for my US Para force. All in, I have painted 90 figures in slightly over 3 weeks (which included a few days of painting breaks). At some point I will be adding rank insignia decals and tufting the bases.The decals will have to wait until I next place an order with Warlord.
My next project will be more airborne troops, this time some Polish paras for my Arnhem collection. The first figures are out on the table ready for me to begin painting them:
There are just eighteen figures for this mini-project, which I will paint in batches of nine. Conveniently nine are in berets and nine are in helmets.
