A Fox's Guide to Figure Painting (Part 14)

Not a lot of theory today, mostly just an update on where the figures currently stand.

As you can see, I've gone with the local highway patrol car as inspiration for the base with a star indicating the figures forward facing.

The stars are done pretty simply, with a dot of bronze coloured metallic paint...then I cheat. I draw the star over the top with a fine marker pen. When preparing a dozen bases in a similar manner, sometimes a shortcut like this makes the process a bit less tedious. The downside is that you need to spend a bit longer before clear-coating or spray varnishing the marker ink, otherwise it's prone to running.
