More news from Forbodia now. I decided on a colour scheme of dark green with purple trimming and a pale green shirt. Although the figures are nicely detailed, the thick coat of PVA tones it down and makes it easier to achieve a 'toy soldier' paint effect. I started with a small batch of five chaps (I was also painting four gunners at the same time) so as to avoid the feeling of being overwhelmed by the size of the task!
The next job is to varnish them - at least two coats - then stick them to individual bases.
