I managed to paint my first actual SAF fireteam, Ankaran. The name comes from SAF phonetic alphabet. Ankaran, a coastal settlement and would be an equivalent of the famous "Alpha".
a rifleman with F2000S (that would also carry a LAW that I never sculpted to a satisfactory degree)
a SAW gunner, armed with FN Minimi
a grenadier, armed with F2000S with an under slung GL
a section sharpshooter, armed with F2000S with optics (whereas other rifles are armed with red dot sight)
Only one fireteam in a section (that consists 2 teams and a section leader) would have a sharpshooter, but I might just put one in every team for the sake of using them.
I only one complaint about Empress figures at this point. A lot of my miniatures have leg halves not matching (the mould probably slipped). It's not too visible when painted, but it irritated the hell out of me when I was working on them. I did contact the guys at Empress and I was offered replacements, so that is not a rant over service. In the end, I just kept mine as I couldn't send back half massacred miniatures, could I now?
As you probably can NOT see on the photo below, the camo on them has larger blotches, but also a lot more of white. It's hard to photo standing and prone figures together, but I have to admit I'm quite satisfied with how they all look like, even if there is a lot I wish I'd do different.
Lastly, a random patrol photo below. I wish I didn't paint camo on the Humvee gunner's face, but to be perfectly honest, I wish I'd paint camo on everyone else's instead!
That is it for today, I have only one more team ready to be painted and then I'll have to start converting them again as I took a bit of a break from cutting all the metal. I am thinking about a game as well, so hopefully I'll have an AAR for your next, if I don't manage to paint the other team in time.
Thanks for looking,
