The portly figure on the left is the one I mentioned in the first paragraph as being the one conversion I thought looked least convincing. I have to say that he does n't look nearly so bad in this photo, so perhaps its just me?

The Lewis Gun Section is made up of figures from all three packs Bob produces, unified by the advancing pose of the figures I think ~

Again, the Rifle Section includes figures from at least two packs, all unified in appearance this time by their standing pose ~

The great joy, for me at any rate, is the fact that Bob's sculpting style produces a figure which seems to really love the brush; an unfussy yet detailed end product will always result, even for a less than gifted painter like me. As I said in the last post, the kilts were my greatest challenge: painting thin, straight lines and following the flow of the kilt really is difficult, but I'm satisfied the end product will do, if you don't look too closely. They just need to be varnished now and they will be ready to take on those nasty chaps from S.P.I.F.F. or even those cunning Bhurpas!
