I've got a bit of a mix this week, a Fallschirmjager sniper from Bolt Action and some FIW Indians from Conquest.
I haven't received the other FJ miniatures that I ordered from Artizan yet, so I'm eagerly awaiting those in order to fill out a third squad. In the meantime, I worked on a sniper.
He was easier to paint as I didn't have to do the eyes, my least favourite part of a miniature to paint.
My order from Artizan/North Star contains the Muskets and Tomahawks ruleset, so I thought I'd paint up some of the Conquest miniatures that I've had sitting in a box for years. So sad, I know, but I'm sure some of you are in the same boat!
They were a bit more fiddly to paint than I thought they would be, with all the little details on the models. That and I forgot to paint some war paint on them, and had to put it on after I had already glosscoted them all. I used a brighter static grass for them to make them look a bit more "woodsy". :-)
I've ordered a few more boxes of small static grass tufts from Tajima1 Miniatures, as I only have a few small tufts left of my army painter supply. The Tajima tufts are great, and come in a thin box with all of the tufts laid out and have a way stickier bottom than the army painter ones. I feel that you get a lot more tufts for your money as well, and free shipping if you order four boxes or more! For me, it's only Tajima tufts from now on.
