The Kellys Heroes figures I ordered from Grubby Tanks arrived during the week and look most excellent. Andrew Grubb was most helpful and efficient. I have started getting them ready for painting and in the weeks to come hope to post the finished product on the blog.
As mentioned in my last post I have been working on the Pegasus SS set # 2. I found these figures to be a bit fiddly to glue together and quite challenging to paint. The figures are of a slimmer build than some makes of 1/72 and are highly detailed with most of them having separate spades which must be glued on, in addition to arms and other body parts. They do look nice when finished but have taken me considerably longer to complete when assembly time is taken into account- plus I'm not exactly a speed painter. I have put some shots of what I've done so far below. I have also included an Italeri British sarge which I had on the go at the same time, just for fun.
Thanks for everyone's support and encouragement. I have especially appreciated the inspiration I have had from Ben Fiene's blog and Dan Dunbar's blog .
