28mm Crimean British regulars

I finished off the first half of a huge group of 28mm Foundry British for the Crimea. These appear to be regulars with some kind of field cap and coat.

These sculpts are from 1993ish and no longer appear in the Foundry catalogue as far as I can tell.

Up next: Random sci-fi clean-up.

Last few baddies from Imperial Assault

 Last of the Imperial Assault 28mm. first up are some baddies. Greedo flanked by two generic hired gun.

I was leery of the palette for these but they turned out okay.

Greedo I figured would be very hard (I hate painting green skin--I can never get the colour right) but the sculpt made it easy.

Maul posed two challenges: bent light sabre (I tried everything to get it to straighten out) and dark palette with red tattoos.

Basically I'm happy. The base is totally kick ass in person but looks like garbage in this photo for some reason. I wonder if the camera is struggling to reconciling the dark skin and lighter rocks.

Up next: Crimea British, I think.

Outer Rim Imperial Assault

Yes, still on with the Star Wars but it is coming to an end soon. Back to Crimea.

First up are droid friends on Tatooine. Then some bounty hunters (and hunted) in lusher climes.

I was super stressed out by Bossk. Turned out to be dead easy.

 Up next: A few Star Wars baddies.
