My latest project is some Afghan opponents to my Cold War Soviets. These figures are from Elhiem and Sandsmodels. Even though they are quite different in style – elhiem is very naturalistic with realistic proportions, sands models are more chunky and stylised – they seem to mix quite well.
This is a very early stage in the painting, with most of the main cloth colours blocked in. Next the rest of the main colours – faces, guns, shoes – and then the dip and highlights. And then bases. I will be busy, as this bunch is supposed to have it’s day of glory next week, when we I need to design a couple of small Force on Force scenarios set in the Afghan green zone in 1984.
