|Minifig Neat and tidy|
I made a commitment to myself that this time round I would not put my feet up in between stages whilst waiting for things to dry. Looking for an ideal candidate for these brief interludes, I got all nostalgic and thought I might develop a unit of 35 year old Minifig Marines.It would also be an opportunity to get up to speed with the Vallejo acrylics without worrying too much about quality before committing them to more involved pieces. nice simple figures……easy I thought!
How wrong I was, it actually took a lot more work than I thought, coping with sometimes vague and missing detail, it made me appreciate the quality of most modern sculpts with their defined detail and reasonable proportions. Well I did complete one and am actually quite pleased with it but not sure I have the staying power for a whole unit, which is a shame because I quite like the uniform ranks.
I think it’s time to open a box of Perrys, at least until another fit of nostalgia takes hold!
Anyway back to the 80’s Imperial Dwarfs and that Asgard half Troll Chieftain.
