Having been distracted setting up and maintaining this blog, I thought it was about time I dragged myself away from the computer and did my bit in painting figures for the diorama. So here they are, my Kiwis.
I found the whole process very enjoyable. The larger size makes painting details so much easier, yet they are still sculpted in a style that suits my normal ink and dry-brush techniques that I use on my 28mm figures.
I've taken Peter Jackson's advice to heart, and painted the shirts various shades of grey (not 50, though!) and blue.
And I've also followed my own advice and taken a shot of me at work on these figures.
