It's a long time since I painted these 25mm .... Aliens miniatures, I used to take them to work with me at the Odeon and paint them on the projection box bench between running the movies !! I glossed all the figures with Polyurethane Varnish to help protect them. I used fuse wire that we had in the projection box spares drawer to add details like cigarette end and bullet casings to the bases.Niiiiice!
