Posted by CommissarHarris in , , ,

Having finally decided on a black uniform, I have begun production. I have for various reasons got too many infantry, and not enough Grenadiers. Still I have to paint up the first batches of models before getting any more. Well that's what I keep telling myself anyway. Currently working to this recipe:
