Had enough time through the day to prepare my newly acquired US infantry in 1/72nd scale-soft plastic is a strange medium to work with when you are not used to it. I coated the figures with PVA glue a couple of hours before spraying them black, even the contact adhesive used to glue the figures to their bases is new to me.
I will be painting these chaps in a desert colour scheme and see how these turn out. I also noticed that there are plenty of insurgent types on the internet to cross swords with...I've not gamed with soft plastic since I was a kid but the price is so low it does actually match my funds at the moment! Oh well I will paint for a couple of hours tonight and post the results tomorrow.
