My first LPL round and I get placed with one of the legends  o_o

As you said, your entry is very nice and would have been a winner facing 70% of the others.
If you continue showing that level of quality (and improve a bit your photo skills), I'm sure you will many rounds.

Richard, wonderful scene and marvelous painting as always. I've heard about the difficulties painting the tiny Perry WW2 figs and I'm a bit glad that it's not my theatre of war ...  :)

I like your setup, Timbor, and when I should suggest an improvement, why not crop the picture and cut away the borders using a free picture software like Irfanview or Picasa? That way your nicely painted minis could be admired in some more detail.

Thanks for the feedback, Admiral. I do use Picasa, and I did crop this picture. I guess I could have cropped it a bit more though... all part of the learning curve!  :D

The Brit Unit is awesome.  Despite the fact that they are all wearing the same "Uniform" (and the trouble a group in "Uniform" is that they are all supposed to look the same) each one has its own personality.  I like how the fabric of their clothing reflects different age, washing cycles, and length of use. 

Pretty awesome.

Thanks Revfan.

I've updated my Western Desert build thread in the WW2 board with more pictures of these figures...
http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=52964.195

As you say, and as I think I describe in that thread, the trick is getting a variety of similar but not identical coloured uniform elements. Because with desert sun, sweat and so on, nothing would be truly and perfectly uniform...
