Johnny Turk he was ready, he primed himself well.
He rained us with bullets, He rained us with shells,
And in five minutes flat he'd blown us all to hell,
Then he blew us right back to Australia.
(from the song "The Band Played Waltzing Matilda")
Brian has put up an informative posting on The Woolshed Wargamer blog, describing his experience of painting Turks.
Pop over there and take a look ...
Brian also posted about these figures on The Miniatures Page: "I said to my son that when I send this off it will be the last time I see the ones I painted. They will be lost in the vastness of this huge diorama and I will never know which were my work – so in a way they all will be."
