#6MMRPC update

I'm still here, and still working on the challenge. The festive period was quite slow going painting wise as I spent a lot of it visiting family. And I hate painting infantry.

Still, other than a platoon I've to strip of paint and crew figures for my PSC 6-pdrs I'm now up to date on all my infantry and crew painting. 

Just need Army Painter Dark Tone varnish applied, highlights and basing....

  2. Looking good! It must be a great feeling to get that lot off the painting table. I like the guy on the stretcher :-)

  3. Yeah I'm not looking forward to painting a German Late War, Soviet Mid-Late War, and Brit and German Early War armies for I Ain't Been Shot Mum...

    That being said, these figures look great! Well done!

  4. The best part of painting infantry is suddenly you have 50 painted guys done after weeks of no productivity. Otherwise it's a total grind.

    1. They look ok Drax, but I've not put them together yet. I already have 6 BF models for me infantry company. The plastic ones will be for my Recce Squadron list... (yeah, I know, I could just use the same guns. But hey, the decals and squadron markings will be different - and your talking to the guy that's planning to buy limbered 6 and 17-pdrs in order to have the guns modelled properly when they are being transported!).

      I'll do a review of the guns at some point for you to show the BF and PSC ones side by side.
