I'm out of everything; got no more 28mm or 20mm to do. There is a half done horror show of a 1/72 Puma 330 in my box of apathy, don't make me make the Puma.
I'm looking forward to the Command & FMJ packs, may also have to buy extra M60s just to get the ammo carrier with the Thompson... or some more late WW2 Brits...

Next batch should be out of the oven next week. The LAWS changes slowed the process slightly.

That's alright, Paul's sculpts are well worth the wait...

Picked up a few of Gringo's Marines wanted to see how they compared size wise.

Yes; the Gringo's are a slight tad bigger, but you probably wouldn't notice once on a gaming table.

I should have mentioned, I chopped the base off the Gringo marine and just pinned his feet to the base with some brass rod, which probably took a couple of mm off the height.

The other ones were the sniper team;

That Gringo Marine definitely looks an imposing sort! Not too big to be out of scale through which is good news :)

It's funny what you notice when looking at your own pics on a screen; just spotted a mold line on one that I was completely unaware of whilst painting, handling, staring at for hours... Also did my usual and forgot to brush off the excess grit between basing and priming, hence the textured trousers...

All common mistakes.  Well at least to me they are.  Taking close up photos is the best way to pick up on missed details.

Your grunts are looking great.

Cheers Ragnar.
Must say I'm really enjoying painting 28mm again (got heavily into 20mm Bush/Border wars stuff), between this range and Mr Hicks late WW2 sculpts am somewhat spoilt for choice currently. I'm very much looking forward to the next round of releases, and anticipating some LRRP teams or Green Berets at a future date to have a go at some camo...

Please tell me this isn't the death of your 20mm project?

Or if it is, can I have all your stuff? :P

I cannot wait to paint some late war British that I don't need.
