Hello my childrn, it's been almost two weeks since last I posted, no I'm not dead or if I am dead I havn't noticed.
The problem is I havn't realy painted anything, I got into one of my moods, were I just had to paint more modern, but I didn't have any modern, I had orderd some, but it took longer then expected to get them, so I havn't painted much. I have played lots of computer games tho. I'm gonna make a post about one of them later.
He is empress miniature which is odd since americans never had an empress. The miniature is superb, I got a bunch of american infantry, that is going to be a few squads of marines, I also got a few red star russians, one anoying thing is that almost all of the americans and russians needed glueing, arms, heads and weapons ect. I use white would glue, it's strong and works on metal, but take a good 18-24 hours to really harden, that means a good 24 hour were I just have to wait for the glue to harden. Lukely there were a few figures not needing glueing, and this is one of them
This DM has a M14, which is one of my favorite guns of all time, sure not that good at full auto. But even an old M14 can kill a man at 600 meters, a DM version or Sniper Version(like M21 and M25) can take out a man at 800 meters. Really you need a Bolt action like M40 to see a more acurrate 7.62 weapon.
Again thanks to 14th Brooklyn for the techinqe, it works just as well on marpat as ACU.
I did the M14 with green syntetic stock, the vest in brown/tan.
