I finally finished my American WWII infantry riding on giant American eagles. In an earlier post I mentioned how I was able to get Major Objective painting service to mold and paint the riders for me. The eagles were collected from flea markets over the past few years.
All of this effort was to have opponents for my Eureka Nazis.
The delay in finishing this project was bases. I ran out of Games Workshop flight stands. It turns out that none of the hobby stores in the area had any in stock. I was going to mount them on the round, wooden bases you see in the picture above. I get these from a guy at Historicon who sells as many wooden bases as you can stuff in a Chinese takeout container for a fixed price. All I really wanted was the clear plastic rods. So, I ordered a ten-pack of plastic rods from Tower Hobbies. They arrived in three days, and I finished this project this weekend. I think they look pretty cool.
