Indeed!  Curious how many manufacturers overlook the obvious benefit to their sales of expertly painted minis. 

BTW these are excellent!

They look great! I really hated those figures based on the pictures on the BTD website but you've really shown what can be done with them  :D

Excellent Shaun. You've really nailed the field grey. Just the right muddy grey-green shade :)
That rubble-like basing mix is very effective too. What is it?

Is the guy kneeling bottom right in the last picture meant to be boss-eyed though? lol

Love them.
I really like the early stuff BTD did.
Have lots.
Some of their later stuff is hit and miss.

if you zoom in it's just a trick of the light ;-)

rubble is a big mixture of various shades & sizes of Woodland Scenics scatter plus a load of pigments and other bits all sloshed together, to create a mix I don't have to paint ;-)
