Wow - you must have the patience of a saint to do that many tiny figures!  Very impressive display.

Tamiya Khaki Drab for the uniform, spray painted on. Then Khakie drill for the webbing, nato black for the boots. Humbrol chocolate and gun metal for the weapons then washed with Windsor Newton Oils and Fuelite.

Seemed to have come up OK. Finaly sealed with a fixitive.

Looking good, but why the black bases? Is that the primer paint?

Thanks. The black is as you say, the primer paint. I will base them when I have time..but for the photo, the bases looked more tidy painted all black  :)

Here are my old guys refreshed. Don't mind the rear stretcher bearer - he's a little battle-damaged...
