CAESAR BRITISH SAS (WIP).

Hello all,

This is a figure from Caesar British SAS, set.I plan to do more figures for two reasons,firstly they look the nuts, and secondly you only need about four colours to paint them!I always love the film "Who dares wins" with Lewis collins and the late great Edward Woodward.The scene when they are all running down the hall in black kit is the best bit,they look hard as nails.
I started by removing the base and gluing him to the red cap for painting.I used PVA glue,learning my lesson from loctite.Then a quick coat of dark grey all over,No need really for an undercoat because the un painted figures are grey anyway.
The webbing,harness's,boots and Heckler and Koch painted matt black.A wash of black over the grey coveralls gives a reasonable look of faded black.
To highlight everything I used Tamiya weathering powder lightly brushed over everything.
A very quick figure to paint,so that's why I will be painting more.The base is going to be a bit more of a challenge though.I think a team of four against a wall/doorway would be about right.The Italeria Apartment block would be great if it wasn't so expensive,very "Prince's Gate".
Its a shame Airfix never brought out a set of there 1/32nd figures in 1/72nd,There are rumours of a lost mold somewhere,but I think its being looked after by Elvis and Lord Lucan.If you see any of them let us know!
