ACTA Norman Infantry

It was my intention to post an update on the Arnhem Group Build Project, but because I will have some surgery done on my back (hernia) I decided to post something small. So only one figure to show today but it is a big one (54 mm).

I bought this set last year just for fun. The box contains 16 figures in four different poses. As they are made from hard plastic, I don't know if modifications on the figures will be possible. I was thinking to try something with hot water, but I'm not sure if it will work. One thing I can do is to change the position of the shields. The one I'm showing here is painted as test figure. I used the color scheme that was on the back of the box.






I hope you like him.

PS: Cause of the surgery I don't know when I be able to do a next post. It all depends on when and how! Just keep on watching!

    1. Thanks Hightower! I used two kinds of brown and a mud wash to archive this result on the shield.
