So, I've bitten the poisoned apple of jealousy. I was perusing a couple well-done Moderns blogs and came across 20mm action in general, being Elhiem figures specifically. I took a look at their Modern Special Forces, Russian, and Taliban/Foreign Fighters ranges and decided I couldn't not have myself some...
So I placed an order for three four-man Spec Ops teams (in my mind, an R&S team, a Direct Action Team, and a 'general' team to take on all comers), then nine Islamist-looking fighters, and seven Eastern European-looking troops. I plan on using them in my (still upcoming) modern Imagi-nation for very small-scale special operations skirmishes (probably using Five Men in Normandy, modified a bit).
So, you know of course that I'm primarily a 10mm guy, usually going smaller if I change things up. So, I'm not very good at painting 10mm, and even worse at painting 20mm. I think they look okay, it's just that they take me about an hour per figure!!! Similarly, my camera skills aren't very accomplished, and I'm starting to realize my camera might not be technologically as capable as would be useful for taking pictures of small lead figures. Nonetheless, here's the official record of my latest accomplishment: four (4) 20mm Elhiem Special Forces figures.
