In March I post the test base of my first attempt at some 15 mm WWII figures from Peter Pig. Speedy as ever, I've now finished the whole mortar platoon so it's time to post another photo:
Over size photo. Click for enlarged, "warts and all", photo.
I'm please with with both the new painting technique and the basing scheme on these figures. I was worried that the uniform and base would not contrast but things worked well.
One thing that really surprised me was how much research I had to do! It took a while to get the colour scheme for the radio set, the mortar round and the carrying case. Far more than I imagined would be required. As I normally paint medieval figures I'd become used to the relative freedom of the period.
I accidentally uploaded a black and white version and I quite like the resulting period feel:
Anyway the next step is to try an paint a few universal carriers to go with the mortar team. Then I have to decide whether to paint and army or sell these.
