Halfway through

My current commission is painting a Bolt Action New Zealand army for Craig. Last night I reached the halfway point.
'I'm sure we're in Italy, sir'
'Damn it. Where am I going to get a decent bottle of whiskey around here!'
'We're the D-Day dodgers...'
'... in sunny Italy...'
'...always on the vino, always on the spree.'
I have another 19 Kiwis to paint and then 6 Fallshirmjager for a total of 25 figures. In return, I've got 25 painted Soviet 15mm tanks. This commission is literally painting for lead.

    1. They are for his son's army - and the boy is impressed so that gets them past the toughest critic!
