One of the IBoH's friends on Facebook is running a 'cannon fodder' painting competition this month. The rules are simple; paint up (but don't base) any standard troop model in 28mm or 28mm heroic scale. So I thought I'd try something totally different as I've not painted many 'true' 28mm mini's so far, though that might change this year. Anyway, I digress. I managed to badger a complete Bolt Action US Marine mini of a friend and I'm attempting to paint him up. I slapped on some base layers, the washed all of them dark brown so I can now begin adding in the flesh, metal and highlights to everything else.
