So one week and a bit after Salute (in between DIY tasks) I am going to try and paint my Peter Pig supplied 15mm Flash Gordon.
The first thing I found about 15mm is that they are really bloody small. I know this might seem obvious to most people but I'm not sure I was expecting them to be quite so small. However not to be deterred I am going to go for it.
I've been umming and ahhing about what colour to paint him but I think I've decided to go with the 80's cartoon scheme (which is the same as dampfpanzerwagon did with his 40mm Flash Gordon) but also it matches up with some of the comics.
Now I have no idea how this is going to go, I am an extremely slow novice level painter and have never painted anything this small.
Before unleashing the coloured gloop I first need to base the tiny little man. After checking out a variety of forums I've decided to go for small steel washers (and shall be purchasing some this evening) but I am going to compare the to 1p coins as well as I know a lot of people favour them.
I also might try a test paint on one of the other 'Red Martians' I have, I'll try and take some photos as I go but not sure how the macro function on my camera will perform.
Am quite excited and will let you know how I get on...
