More Marines

 So did 4 more marines, I must say I like the marpat effect, at some distance of when lookig at small photoes, the look green yet not quite just green.
 Then when you look up close you get the brown and black to, I'm very satesfied with these the cammo does take some time, as there are sevral layers, and some times you get to much brown or black and have to go over them again, balansing out the colors.
 It's really quite cool, but hard, since you have to stop and take notes during the way, and you never know exactly when you got it, untill you got it. So it's not like painting regular uniforms, were you paint dark blue, lighter blue and lighter blue still, here you might go back and forth sevral times untill you get the right look.

 I got sevral more marines, in total I have 16 marines and 12 russians. One of the hardest things is to make generic bases, with horse and musket units you can never go wrong with bases with lots of grass, but with modern, modern figures that might be in forests, fields, or urban, it would be a pain in the ass to have 2 sets of figures, well 3, 1 woodland, 1 desert, 1 urban.

So thats just something I have to live with.
