Now that the club's Zulu all dayer is out of the way, I can at last get onto painting the 28mm Sci-Fi figures I bought from Pig Iron Productions (www.pig-iron-productions.com).
The figures are really nicely detailed, are in a good range of poses and had zero flash on them. The service from Pig Iron was superb, with the figures delivered within 2 days of ordering.
I bought the figures for use in a 'Starship Troopers' Campaign, but having got my hands on them I will now be purchasing some of their Kolony figures (the enemy of the Heavy Infantry).
So on to painting - as ever I first glued the figures onto pennies, then used 'no more nails to bring the base level up to that of the figures. I then used PVA glue and sharp sand to cover the base.
