Messrs Ethan Rifles and Thomas Gunne
I have been painting a few 28mm figures of late, to take a break from basing Napoleonics and drybrushing what feels like an endless stream of Soviet tanks.
I was quite happy with the gasmask, which took a little bit of work.
I got this fine fellow from EM-4 miniatures along with some other pieces. I've coveted him for quite some time and I was delighted to finally get to put a brush to him.
I was surprised how light I need to go for the highlight on the brolly
28mm isn't really my thing - but I liked painting this chap. It's sort of a compromise between 120mm and 20mm in terms of painting for me. Big enough that highlighting and shadowing and so forth are worth doing, but achievable while watching a spot of telly with the Memsahib.
Now - I rarely paint figures for the good of my health, so this fellow will be gracing a table soon enough. One thing that's become clear to me is that I'm awful at staying in touch with friends and I have friends who aren't that interested in historicals. With that in mind, I'm raising a small force so that we can play some games together.
These will be small games (about 20 figures a side) and using the old Rogue Trader rules in their "roleplaying game with some toy soldiers" guise. We shall see how they hold up after all these years.
