The trouble was not with the paint but the Revell acrylic varnish. Never again. Sadly for me all acrylic varnishes worth no more than gluing sand and flocking on to bases.
But here they are again, sixteen figures and four guns. They could take two sides for example if the fight was between the Swedes and Poles.
Buff and brown colors are dominant with some green and blue at places. I used Sepia wash on all the figures, it gives a higher contrast but my Umber is running low.
Next time I'll order more (and larger) MDF bases, those don't bend with the paint like the cardboard ones.
It also seems like I have to practice photographing more.
