Unfinished Finished...

When I first start a collection I sometimes, in my zeal to get to that first small battle, finish a unit without that final layer of highlighting and detail (eyes and such) with the idea that later I'll return to the unit and give it its final polish. I think this will be especially true with these 40s since the larger areas of painted surface will benefit from a more subtle shading than might work on a 28mm. At this point that's yet to be proven but that's what I'm thinking. I'm also seeing that a photo brings out some of those missed details and touch ups...but at least the troops can get to fighting! The closeup camera is a harsh mistress!
