I also worked a bit on the bases of my 28mm Soviets, sealing the ground cover with diluted white glue. I feared that the glue would turn the brown ballast a bit darker, which it did. Drats.
Plus, I really improved the look of the 15mm hedges I made years ago. They don't look like Brillo pads anymore! It was really easy to do. I'll have photos and tips of that later on.Yes, lots of new 15mm stuff in the works here. :-)
Oh yeah, welcome to all the new folks following the blog. I always appreciate it. Feel free to leave comments.
Anyway, here is the third fellow I've painted from the London Mob pack. I thought I'd try white hair for the first time. I think it came out a bit too white, so next time I'll do it differently. Lesson learned. (I'm rationalizing that he lost his Sanity roll while facing one of Cthulhu's minions, turning his hair total white. LoL.) Any tips on painting an old man's white hair would be appreciated!
Since I have a bunch of these guys done now, I'll start working on the bases. I'm thinking of using the fine ballast but painting the entire base gray. I've seen this on the Pulp Figures site and in WSS magazine for "urban" figures and like the look. Simple and easy. I just have to figure out what color gray. You guys think it would work?
