Got another two guys done; it is fun to only paint a few at a time!:)
I must say, the Perry Brits paint up FAST... they are very cleanly molded, and there simply isn't much to them! White pants and belts and all of that, a smidge of red, flesh, gun, pack, and they are done. I am honestly enjoying painting them, partially because of the relative ease of painting, and partially because I am only doing a few at a time...
I want to get a few more done (I think I'll tackle the other greenjackets soon) and then I'll put together a few Vikings for fun:) I dipped my first 28mm Confederates as well, and will base them up when they are done too... maybe tonight, if Lost doesn't get in the way.
I think the head swap does look fine now that they are painted... I was a bit worried that the Sergeant had a HUGE melon. Yes, it still looks a touch large, but overall I think it blends in fine.
This is very different, this whole "doing a few figures for fun" instead of "Must... complete... unit..." So far, so good:)
