Axemen

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.

  6. Great looking sappers - they all have their own individual character look.

  7. Great job on the pioneers/sappers! Your rendering of the apron is especially well done.
