Spanjard, this was a learning project. I needed some time to find a way to tackle the eyes. I think that they are, together with hands, most important part of the figure. Next problem was finding enough of quality DAK figures. Early on I decided that I want them all to have tunic and long pants and finding that kind of figures without strips, belts and hanging equipment is challenge of it self. Secondly, I wanted to paint every one of them in different color, which is not that visible because of my home made wash, which is equalizing colors quite a bit. Thirdly, matching all kind of legs, hands, desert boots to bodies and heads to caps was lot of work to. Plus, I never thought that truck will swallow that many figures. Not to forget waiting time for all the deliveries, which is putting you in ON OFF mode and make you burn down. So, yes, it was quite a job, but fun and challenging one, for shore.
Most important part is that I am no artist. If I can do it, anybody can. All of this figures are painted in a simple way. No primer, just paint, one wash for body and legs, one for face, then decals and flat clear at the end. No highlights, no dry brushing... And all of that done in one evening... Simple and fast.
Scandinavian evenings are long 😉
...and on the weekend they last till morning...
And in the summer they last six weeks...
Another beauty !
I cannot see images 1 and 2
