15mm Sci-Fi Hard Suit Infantry
I started cleaning up and basing the GZG Cyclops hard suit figures into squads for my mechanised platoon this afternoon. This was quite enjoyable despite the heat and I whistled through two rifle squads and have started on the AT squad. I have now run out of rifle armed figures, so the command squad will have to wait, although I have chosen a single figure as the overall platoon commander, complete with a nice, shiny one penny coin base to single him out from the euro coin based squaddies.
I've also black undercoated all of the tanks and APC's, which was a bit of a worry as the temperature is so high that I thought the paint might not cure. In fact, because of the dry heat, the finish is as smooth as the proverbial baby's bum, so I can start painting once they've fully cured. I haven't decided what shades I'll use for this or if I'll use an airbrush, which I haven't actually got, so there's still some room for further thinking. I'll probably just go with a bog standard military green using a brush unless I can think of something more exciting?
