Battalion HQ

Started work on my son's Soviet Battalion HQ. My first time using popsicle sticks instead of the figures already mounted on the bases. I didn't like the sticks very much and just held the figures as I painted. I liked that much better. And it was far better than the figure attached to the bases.


  1. Plastic cola bottle tops are quite useful for painting infantry before basing them.


  2. Great idea, thanks. I will give it a try. My biggest problem with the popsicle sticks is I work under a magnifying glass that is on a stand. The stick don't fit under it at certain angles or I keep bumping into the glass. The pop tops should do the trick.
