    The amount of detail you put in each figure has me in awe.

    I appreciate the comment Malc,
    I guess i do try to take care of the small details, i believe it helps to the overall look
    Sometimes i feel like i go very slow on my progress with figures, but worth the time and effort at the end.
    Cheers!

    No problem my friend,
    Will you be open to give it a try to the way i do place the figures onto the base?.
    It will save you time , i can only imagine the precision work you have to do in order to separate the base of each figure!

    I might be able to get away with keeping the bases on (if they where trimmed a little smaller if they where placed in the Grass area) but a large portion of them need to be placed on the solid road and the bases would show up.

    Yeah, when you hace to place them on the road is tricky, what i normally do in that case ( depends on how big the base of the figure is) i use a little bit of putty to add some "dirt or mud" to the ground and conceal the base with vallejonearth color and then glue some dirt .

    To answer your question, i have painted few of the AWI perry French infantry in 28mm, they are amazing, but i discontinued that project and end up selling them.
    Best regards.
