They took an age and were very often superseded by other projects, the uniform colours appear to match those of the period they were an absolute bind to paint and I was a little underwhelmed by the result.....
Now a wanted a dusty effect but this is bloody ridiculous, I did encounter this issue about two years and over come it with Olive Oil.

I really can't decide whether I preferred the dull or shiny versions, the shine does tend to where off with game play.
However given the bad luck with these so far, you can only imagine how they are likely to perform on the table top.
So I finally finished them now just the 96 Infantry to do, they might have to wait at the foot of lead mountain for a while.
