So as I am relatively “challenge” free this and next month (does this make me Challenge, Challenged” I wonder? 🤨), I thought I’d take this rest bite to fulfill a promise I made a few weeks back and get the rest of my “Mantic Pathfinders” finished. Now for those of you not in the know I’m not overly enamoured with these plastic multipart troopers, but as there are only ten of them in my collection (and it’s likely to remain at ten!), and five of those were finished back in January (god this year is flying by!), I thought it about time to apply the last remaining colours to this “bunch of five” too.
Now I mentioned in their last post that I’d added a “camo” cape to the standing sniper figure, this was basically so he would match the kneeling sniper as I’d used the separate head that had a hood and cape attached on that figure, simple stuff just a rectangle of greenstuff stuck on his back a few “waves” added to it (but not many as the “official” one on the other figure didn’t have many either), and I added a couple of “sausages” around the neckline to simulate the hood as if thrown back. Now I’m not going to go through all the “ins and outs” of the painting again, if you want to know the process you can read it here….
Suffice to say that the capes were painted in the same “camo” effect as the trousers, with the inner sides just painted in khaki that was then highlighted with more of the same lightened with a little coffee.
So a rather short post this week, so I thought I’d take a leaf out of Dave (The Imperfect Modelers’) book, and leave you with a joke I was sent the other day, that features a man who stands for everything that is great about Britain! and Jacob Rees-Mogg 😠, well it made me laugh….
Next time it’ll be my “Advent Challenge” figures for March, so till then stay safe, and cheers Roger.
