Yay! Uncharacteristically true to my word, I managed to get some more painting done the last couple of nights, and I had fun (for once) painting some details - namely the blue rim round the mugs of the soldier and the NCO enjoying their brews:
Tea mugs are important.
Interestingly, in taking this pic I noticed that I hadn't painted the stock of the NCO's submachine gun. This is out of habit: all my other SMG-toting NCOs have the brutally metallic Sten gun, but this fellow appears to have been blessed with a Tommy gun. I'll remedy this forthwith.
Oh, and in other news I got another couple of steps complete in the assembly line of my 3rd Platoon for Flames: it'd probably be a reasonable target to set for myself to have completed my whole 11AD force by the end of the summer hols, I should think.
To help in this goal, I've also just purchased a brace of the gloriously simple drab-painted 40mm Bofors S-P Anti-Aircraft vehicles.
I'm likely to have another stab at some 40k modelling/painting again next week...
