Some 28mm stuff usable for 1:55 and the painting technique

The metal guns and a set of Confederate Generals:

Together with a friend of mine who has a good painting technique we start painting these the 29th of September. We are in a group of modellers who will meet that day. This group has as a purpose to have fun in the hobby and to take it to the next (=higher) level. All have there specialties and I am one of the guys who does American modelling.
How we paint? Well, this way. These are 1:72 figures but the way to go is the same.

More to come!
