Even more Tratvians!

The sixth and final infantry battalion has now been accepted into the Tratvian Army.  Actually this is the Second (Rifle) Battalion and joins 1st Rifles and the Naval Infantry in 1st Infantry Brigade.  All clear?  Good.
 Like most of the Tratvian Army these chaps are Armies in Plastic figures.
I have tried out a new varnish on this unit - Ronseal Outdoor Gloss Varnish.  It takes rather longer to dry than the other stuff and being solvent based it's rather smelly, but it does give a lovely high gloss finish.  I think I'll stick with it.
 For extra stability all my 1/32 infantry are based on 30x40mm pieces of MDF.

With so much varnish it's difficult to shave...

All uniforms are polished prior to battle!

A couple of these Tratvians offered to do the tiling in my bathroom. I paid them a deposit and that was the last I ever saw of them. :-(

Great looking unit and one you really can say "ooh shiny" to.

That's the regimental motto!
