The "supports" got painted with Vallejo's Game Color Cobra Leather (stupid name). I couldn't stay away and Minwax'd the supports. They look good and will look better when they're highlighted. The plan is to add some cannon balls-double ought buckshot shot works just fine for that chore. Still need to find some 25/8mm buckets or small barrels. They can always be added later. Sometimes too much on a stand can detract from the model IMHO. The basing took a little more time than I thought; I've posted before that I'm used to Vallejo's PumiceThis is a fun project so far.
I'll post up some pictures of the project on some of the terrain over the weekend. Bear with me on the pics...I just took them while the models were on a piece of sheet steel, illuminated by my painting lamp.
