|Should have put the guy with the tartan in the front...|
So with that unit complete I thought I'd treat myself and paint something else completely different. My eyes fell on my test unit of Paraguayan 15mm, which are all based and undercoated ready for painting. I picked them up and studied them, thinking about what colours I was going to need - some of them are wearing full uniform and others just have a kilt - and then put them back down. For the first time ever it felt like painting these little fellows was going to be too hard. I've been painting a lot of 28mm recently, and have enjoyed them, but I've also painted a lot of 15mm in the past and never had a problem. I'm not too sure what this painter's block is about, but it made me reconsider my next subject.
|There's a fairly decent size differential there. Is that why I couldn't face painting them?|
In other news, I've made the decision to get the last of the big five for WWI. Austro-Hungarians will round out my armies so that I will have 1914 forces for them and for France, Germany, Britain, and Russia. These 15mm figures don't seem a trial to paint at all, maybe because they are quite large? Or is it the subject matter?
