Strangely, I always try and paint one through to conclusion to give me an idea of how to paint the figure and work out the stages for the whole batch. It seems to work as I've learned about the peculiarities of the casting and speeds things up.
This one is an Essex figure, open handed, so I gave him a hand-painted flag.
The unit is coming together.
As you can see, there are quite a few of them.
I think there are 40 in all.
