This new set of colours from Lifecolor work very nicely. The figures shown on the box art feature models by Tommy's War, a series of 54mm scale WW1 figures which I my personal opinion are about the best you can find for quality and detail. I have used another Tommy's War figure from my own collection to try out this new set of paints. I found that they brushed on very nicely, straight from the (well shaken) pot. What I have chosen to do is not attempt to add all the shading associated with a finished figure but to just take photos of it having applied the basic colours. I have used 5 of the 6 colours from the set, with Uniform Brown for the trousers, Dark leather for the jerkin, Red Leather for boots and pouches, and the two Webbing and Equipment colours. Clearly to finish the figure it will want all the shading added and the flesh painted fully, but in the meantime I leave it here so you can get a good idea of the colours as they come inthe base set.
