Corona Virus leads to benefit for French soldiers Fri, 03 April 2020 18:00
Several years back I purchased the Equipment Pack when it first came out. I was so excited to get all the new miniatures and paint them.
I must admit I spent a lot of time detailing most all of the individual units and weapons.
However, when I got to the French troops I was growing tired of painting, and to just get them on the board quickly, I painted them all with a verdi gras green spray paint and was glad to display them on my User Page. See image below.

Now we have the Corona Virus and many of us are self quarantining but lacking things to do. Well I said to my self,

"Self, time for you to apologize to the French and do something about those troops".

So I have been stripping off the old spray paint and giving these soldiers a proper paint job. Enjoy!

Beautiful! But will they be let back from the desert when the paint dries, or when the pandemic is over?

BOTH.
They are currently on a joint task force with the French Foreign Legion.
