Wow! You have a lot more time and patience than I do!

A promise is a promise after all and he was more happy with the result than I am! I'm disappointed with the crude quality of the game pieces and my painting efforts was all in vain as I see it with the overall bad quality of the plastic lumps.

Wouldn't it be cool to have miniatures game pieces this small, with the quality of say, Bolt Action or Flames of War!?! But,they are what they are....meant to be more suggestive than anatomically correct in extreme detail. In truth....it is why I never painted my game pieces for this series, or others like M44 or A&A boardgames. I think did a marvelous job with what you had to work with.
If you can't be a good example, be a horrible warning

Thanks Em! One moore thing that bugs me is the scale difference between the different tanks and vehicles. The blobs that should look like figures is at least consistent in scale.

That's why I never painted my miniatures for this series and most Memoirr 44 figures. The only Memoir figures I painted were the Equipment Pack miniatures, which came in white. After a while, I got tired of looking at white Tigers, Italian artillery, nebelwerfers, snipers, Finnish Ski troops and others. So these, I painted, but not most. I see these as board games and not miniatures games.

Kubelwagen and M-7

a couple of snipers I painted to be Russian:

These needed to be something other than just white!
