In the short time available to me I have been busy working on my little WW2 diorama. A very wise modeller once told me that it is more important to finish a diorama than get it perfect...and I have to agree with him. With this in mind, I have nearly crossed the finish line with this one.
By far the most time consuming were the remaining five German soldiers. I wont go into the process of painting them, since I have already done so in the previous posts. What I will say is that painting them up was not very enjoyable. In fact, the opposite was more like it. I found their scale and lack of definition very frustrating. At this scale, it is more important to give the impression of accuracy rather than the actual thing, but it was still a pain in the tender side. And these are some of the best figures in this scale! It is definitely 28mm and up for showcase pieces from now on. Anything smaller is solely gaming material - as well as their painting treatment.
So until next week farewell and good health from your earth bound neighbourly blogger,
