|NOT that kind!|
In the last hour before I can add paint to figures for the 4th Annual Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge, here's a few photos of what I've completed in the run up to the start of the challenge.
These are 3 of the 4 sappers required for IV Corps. The 4th I've already got in my collection, one of the HaT sappers from the light infantry command set. These 3 include 2 from the Zvezda Old Guard Grenadier set and 1 from the HaT light infantry command set.
Despite the lovely anatomically to scale Zvezda sculpting, I prefer the dwarf-like HaT figure, because the detail on the front of the Zvezda figures is almost non-existent, making it very difficult to paint. The HaT figure does not have that problem; all the details of the straps and the apron are clearly visible and easy to paint. The shading varnish sits well in all the folds and crevices, too.
