First unit now done and the basing has grown on me. Not only because it is so quick and easy but also because the colour matches the deck of a couple of boats I have sitting ready for use in our Steam Wars games.
I am using 5 man units in Steam Wars as it is a small unit game not needing huge units. One specialist and four rifles (automatic rifles in this case).
Black pyramid sells Aether weapons packs for a couple of quid that serve as any number of rayguns or high calibre launchers.
These proved quite quick to paint up as the undercoat is the base colour… Only 3 more units to go in this batch then on to the new range when it arrives.
