40mm Sharpe and Harper - part five

Photos Two, Three, Four and Five - Show the progress so far. I still need to paint the metallic areas and varnish but I am very pleased with how the piece is coming along. I know that it would have been easier to have fully painted the two figures prior to properly basing them, but I am too impatient (one of the reasons that I will never be a great figure painter).

Photo Six - A close up of the groundwork and how the two miniatures have had their metal bases blended into the DAS modelling clay.

Not much more painting to do, then on to the varnishing. I am still not sure if I should add some feature to the base - a broken bottle or water container. I plan on having some dry static grass tufts but little else.

I'm enjoying your progress on this work. Actually, these two figures are starting to intrigue me.
