I recently painted some 'Empress Miniatures' figures from their excellent Modern Range. First up is four figures from one of their Special Forces packs. I have painted these in a mix of different camo and not too uniform in appearance as you would expect. The vehicles are a couple of die cast toys that I repainted a while ago.
A couple of 'Downed Helicopter Pilots' from Empress. I have painted one of these in a plain flying suit and body armour so that I can use him for both my British and American collections if need be.
Next up, I have painted up some more British Infantry to fill out the platoon. I have changed the way I have painted the Multi Cam on these, as the original ones that I did I felt probably had a little too much green in the pattern. I will show a few comparison shots of these in a moment but first, here is my latest attempt at the modern camo.
The platoon and supports so far.
I will be adding to these in my next post with more support options, including medic, mortars, HMG, mine clearance and dog handler. I have also done some 'Jump Off Points' specific for CoC 'Fighting Season' which I shall post.
A comparison shot of the original Multi Cam that I painted on the figure on the right, next to my latest version on the left.
Whilst we are on the subject of camo, I was quite surprised how effective even a painted representation of camouflage is on a toy soldier when placed in the appropriate terrain. After viewing some of the pictures I had taken, I found all I was looking at was the terrain and it was only on closer inspection I noticed the figure. (Then again, maybe it is my age and eyesight)
Same again, old painted style camo on right and the latest batch on left of the picture. I have also put in a couple of non camo figures for comparison.
Just a couple of pictures of the latest Brits to finish off.
