Well having recently been inspired by Tactical Painter, V, and Moiterei's work in 20mm I decided to grab some AB Figures and give it a go. Nuff said - the figures are amazing in both quality and pose. They are a delight to paint.



















A weeks worth of work with another batch shortly to be completed.

Exquisite work, painting of the figs and the basing.
Your color choices on the fall camo are spot on and the blended helmet cover is really well done.

Fantastic work. Much better than m efforts.
Below is a link to my blog. It's the place where I write uninteresting things about little toy soldiers. I do this because I refuse to grow up and behave like an adult.

Thanks Gents the comments are appreciated.

More progress, and enough gun teams complete that the first CoC section is complete (for a PzGr Plt)

Those do look terrific. When I moved back from Oz, I left all my 20mm behind, and everyone else here was doing 28mm, so I started collecting 28mm. I see the AB figures and wish I hadn't... 

Lovely painting coupled with great sculpts is a winning combination.

Cheers Shahbahraz - I've pretty much decided to go with the AB figures for gaming, in 20mm (CoC) but will carry on painting in 28mm just for the fun of it. I'm more a figure painter than gamer, so it works for me.
