I received a note from one of the gang that the new Privateer Press 40mm objective markers had just been delivered to our Local Game Shop - Gamers Sanctuary. I made a quick call and reserved a box.
What you get:
For less than $15.00 your package contains 3 highly detailed resin models and 3 each of the Privateer Press 40mm round-lipped bases. Each objective marker is unique – with stacked ammo crates as the central theme they are all completely different: a screwdriver, an awl, a coffee cup, ammo belt, etc. The objectives markers are also about 35mm tall – very substantial on the game table.
The resin parts have no visible mild lines, air bubbles or flash. I did not have to pick up a blade or file to clean them up – Nada, zip, nothing! A much better quality product out of the mold then Citadel Finecast and 1/4 the cost of Forgeworld resin.
Primer and Paint:
A quick wash in the sink and overnight drying and they were ready to paint. I started with Rustoleum brown primer (a $3 spray primer experiment), painted them with Citadel and P3 paints and finished with Citadel washes. I added Woodland Scenics green flock and a tuft of Army Builder tall grass to each base. I’ll spray them with Krylon Matte Clear (always excellent results) later this week.
Expect to take 2-3x longer to paint these than your original estimate – the closer you look the more detail you find.
