Digging out the original Imperial Guard (or Army as they were called at the time) from 1987 the other week, I came across a substantial amount of unpainted white metal so in a fit of enthusiasm decided to paint it up.
In the interests of time I decided to dip them which turned out better than expected as I'd held onto the figures wanting to paint them up with a Vietnam 'vibe' (I have some toy hovercraft for APC's to be converted for them), The dip has certainly given the Russian Army Green uniforms a US Olive Drab feel and I'm pleased with the overall effect...
I've painted up three nine-man (and woman) sections to create a basic platoon based on the miniatures I had in my collection.
