I've decided to speed up my painting for this batch a bit and decided to use them for my today's post instead of another blank post with conversions. Those aren't varnished yet, but as I'll be away from home for next couple of days, I wanted to post them today regardless.
I feel a bit bad with showing three at a time, but it seems to work for me. I got a rifleman, RPK gunner and a leader today.
Rifleman, as usual is nothing special. He is reloading his SA80. As he wears his hat rambo style, it seemed suitable to dress him at least partly as a civilian. When I first started working on the kit, his body seemed best but I can't end up thinking it looks even more awkward than any other. He has a standard vest (but to be honest, not two are alike in my force :D) and camouflage pants.
A RPK gunner, on the other hand, is a whole other story. I love how he came out in the end. He is clearly a skilled resistance fighter. His ski mask came out great, but I've noticed now that I have always taken photos in a way where you couldn't see his face from up front. I have substituted the dark sand colour for khaki on his uniform and it came out looking far more like an US woodland than the with miniature from the last batch.
Lastly, a leader. He's got a high tech vest, a (camouflaged!) M16 and that's about all that's interesting here. I like the pose, but there really isn't much more to add.
I might mention that I've somehow painted every pair of shoes differently. Not that anyone is looking at the shoes, but it's a nice accomplishment :D.
Lastly, there is the complimentary photo of the insurgency rising. Nine still isn't something to brag about, but I am getting there.
They are put together in a group as per FOF Quick Start rules. First group has a leader, RPG, RPK and 4 rifles. Second one is stuck with a leader and a RPK for now.
Thanks for looking,
