    nice work. But I wonder: are you painting with a cotton-tige.:(
    Or are your figures collecting dust when the paint is drying.
    My advice: if the figure has to dry put a plastic bag over it. Now they are collecting dust.

    It's ok Marc two of the figures have been in the back room for a while and we've been knocking down a chimney Brest and wall .The dust gets everywhere even a closed cupboard.
    Should have rinsed them off before taking the pics.
    Thanks

    Your troopers are nicely painted Martin, and the ground work really helps in setting them off (y)!

    As for dusting, I use a make up brush my daughter gave me, works great!

    Snap, like Joe I use one of the spare make up brushes my wife gets with her make up products. It does a great job at removing dust and cleaning after filing off mould lines.
    Btw Martin how did you achieve the ground work for the RHA figure?
    Cheers

    The ground work is made up of milliput textured with a stone from the garden then white PVA' sprinkled with crushed up cat litter .
    The fence is Plasticard rubbed with rough sandpaper to give it grain and the barbed wire is made up of 5 amp fuse wire.

    Very nice. As for the crap photos the RN figure's lighting made me imagine that he was near a burning building. I got the Loos figure at Euro and will start it one day.

    Cheers
