I have never painted 28mm World War II figures but I thought I would give it a go when I found a good deal on eBay for a British Airborne Squad from Artizan Designs.
I was a bit concerned at doing the Denison smocks in this scale but I must admit to myself (okay . . . I'm giving myself a pat on the back, they turned out pretty good!). When I paint I have to remind myself that I am going for the look at gaming distance - not magnifying glass distance. I might have to give Bolt Action or one of the other WW II skirmish scale games a try.
