Keep it simple stupid

This is the mantra of the SAS, even super soldiers can get in trouble is the plan is to compliacted, the simpler it is, the bigger the chance of succes. I have borrowed this mantra for my russians. After looking at painted FOW figures on the offical site I notised they used a technice I used before on my napoleonics, namly the black only shade. It's a very simple way of painting figures, atleast in theory, it does take some practice to get it right.

So I realised my prevous figures were to busey, while AB Napoleonics will take as many layers of paint you put on them, these might need you to go simpler.

So I tried the black only technice, and I think the resualt was much better, they are simpler yet they look more neat, more pro.

I've gone very basic with these, just black shade, no highlights, I think it's a huge improvment.

So I like the new versions much better then the previous.
