Not much time to devote to the project in the past few weeks.
I bought a bag of 100 straight corks from Amazon to replace the 12 I was previously using. I now have all the insurgents blu-tacked to corks and I’ve applied the undercoat, base skin coat and added filler to the bases. I’m also going to change my approach, instead of painting groups of 12 until they are finished I’m going to pick a colour and batch paint with that then do the same with the next colour, then the next until all the insurgents are painted. This will probably be more of a slog but I think it will help me get everything done quicker.
Here’s a pic of what I have painted so far, with the undercoated figures in the background.
