Feeling a bit more human today, so I managed to finish basing the mortar platoon. I started these as a distraction and found them enjoyable enough to paint.
I tried a different way of creating a bush/hedge, but, to be honest, it looks exactly like my previous efforts. I am quite happy with how the flock looks though - one tip I read somewhere was using multiple layers of flock/pva to get a thicker coverage and the colour mix you want. Up next. . . Hoplites! ! !
P.S. Tried to put all the images into one big image, but I don't think it opens out to the right size. Anyone have any suggestions? Like with the washing machine, I have an innate inability to use Photoshop.
