    Hi folks

    I haven't been too lax in painting department despite packing the house!!!

    bought the MMM Private Trip and Sgt Maj Rawlins a little while back .....havent got Colonel Shaw ....so if anyone has that in the GA ...PM me !!!

    Anyway ...minimal prep on both and to be honest I really enjoyed the painting ...so much I finished off Trip ( played by Denzil Washington ) before I realised it !!!

    Here is a picture:

    Then I began Sgt Major Rawlins..it's a great sculpt as well .......played of course by Morgan Freeman using these pictures as references

    Very nice Nap, love both figures and a shame you can't get Shaw. One of my favorite films from my time re enacting. As an aside, the eagle badge on the Baldrick could be a silver coloured metal, which would have been a private purchase.
