This entry is a small group of SAS recce troops that I have
|This is the basic look I was going for. Easy, right?|
Overall, I am still not very happy with how the camo turned out, but after painting one of them multiple times and starting to get very frustrated I had to just take them as they were before I lost it. I may look at trying some more digital camo sometime in the future, but it will not be any time soon.
I am pleased with how the figs look on the table, but close up they just fall apart to my eye. Maybe it is due to the fact that the camo hides the detail and I just want to be able to see it. I tried to pick out some details like straps, barrel tips, etc, but in general everything I find online shows almost everything being the same colours to help blend things in, even my barrel tips and sights would not really be black/grey but would be camo coloured.
Before anyone points out the fact that SAS does or does not use USA digital camo 5.11, I am not painting these specifically as SAS, that just happens to be the figures base. I picture these as any elite recce force, not specifically SAS.
So, points wise these 4 face off against the 20+ militia I painted up previously, so it is time to see how that works on the table. So, 4 28mm figures at 5 points each gives me another 20 points to my total and to the Modern Challenge I am in.
A very nice set of elite special forces types Byron. I think the camo has worked fine, but as its your army if you want pick out some bits why try it and see? Now it reminds me i have not watched Blackhawk Down for a while.. weekend viewing i think.
