There were no new submissions of painting pics from around the regions today, so I guess it's up to me this time!
After completing my first batch of Fernleafs (New Zealanders), yesterday I received two batches of Turks to paint - half living and half as casualties.
Assembly this time was a cinch, with the very well-designed square pegs attaching the arms positively and securely.
The bodies were cast in resin. What was interesting was that someone had already done a repair job in GreenStuff on the left hand of every single figure. I presume something must have gone wrong with the casting process, and so the hands were replaced by hand-made hands!
I'm now at my favourite stage in the painting process, with the two Tamiya spray-coats completed, and awaiting the first proper brush-painting.
My mate Scott Bowman and myself are going to get together tomorrow at his place here in Paraparaumu to do some painting together (he has exactly the same batch as as I do).
