Dad's Army WIP Part 13...The Painting is Finished!

Oh yes, the painting is all done on this project!
I still have things to do including photography, and packaging the whole lot up for my Aussie customer. It takes me quite a while to wrap the figures as I wrap each figure or item individually in bubblewrap and pack securely in a box with packing beans as needed.

Here's the final work in progress type pictures:

In this first photo the figures have just been taken off their stands and are standing on my disposable palette. The downed german Aircrew are standing to the front. The bases will get touched up with an earthy brown, as it will give a better look in the final photographs.


Here they are again with their bases painted brown and the Dad's Army personalities are in the front line.



I'm really pleased with how these turned out, and the project as a whole. It's great to be able to paint eyes on figures now with my headband mounted magnifier - I can actually see what I'm doing now :-)

All the very best,

John.

    1. I managed to get the C P 1 on Capt Mainwaring's insignia too.
      They are some great sculpts to work with.
