Italeri British Infantry [UPDATED]

Italeri 6056 British Infantry
50 Figuras
15 poses (13 stand up)

Another classic set form Italeri, re-issuing an Esci mould. The figures are a bit taller than her brother set 60033, but they look almost the same in a 40/50 cm range.

Two figures have been modified to become PIAT loaders.

I have imported two figures from Italeri British Commando, changing their heads, with a perfect pose to be Sargeants.

As other times, i have to exploit my large collection of Citadel paints, so here is my Citadel paint guide for British Infantry, although i think the uniform looks too dark.

Italeri British Infantry PrintI put some figures in a base for serial work, a white spray primer. I know is old-fashioned, know i see a lot of figures primed in black and painted with drybrush techniques, not covering all the prime, but i can’t achieve a good result so, so i continue doing it my way.
