Today I managed to slap some paint on a few of the Brigade Games figures that came in Friday. These are Big Sword troops that I'm adding to my Copplestone Dare to Die unit. As I mentioned in the last post, the Brigade figures are a bit shorter so I've padded up each base with a washer to help compensate. As these represent the Ma troops after they became the German trained 36th Division of the National Revolutionary Army, I've moved away from the blue-grey uniform to to a green-grey color (German Fieldgrey is the base). The Kuomintang sun has been added to the helmets using decals from Brigade. They are a bit big with a lighter blue background than I would like, but still are better than anything I could hand paint.
Here they are mixed in with a few of my Brigade figures:
Even with the padded bases they still look a bit small compared to the other figures. However, as long as your looking from above I think they will blend in ok.
