Connoisseur Russian Infantry - WIP
My buddy Adrian gave me these yesterday after our WAB game. He in turn had gotten them free from a fellow TMP member. There are some really great (and generous) folks on TMP. Anyway, I wanted to see how they would look painted, so worked on them non-stop today. To be honest they do look a bit funky - skinny arms and somewhat "flattened" poses. But for free I am not complaining at all - just making an observation. I've never seen Connoisseur figures before - or at least not knowingly. I do like there overall size - comparable to Victrix and Perry. They remind me a bit of Old Glory 1st Edition types; although I think OG may be the better of the two. Anyway, here is how they look block-painted and with a little bit of dry-brushing on the black areas. Some of the buttons were painted on as they weren't sculpted on - no biggie - it's actually easier this way sometimes.
