This was a fantastic force to collect, as the US Marine models are stunning, and so full of character.
I found having the force mapped out from the start, and a rough deadline to completing the project was a massive aid to remaining motivated. For anyone struggling or getting bogged down in a project I would recommend doing something different, whether that be painting something or a different force, maybe making some terrain, or even just having a few days off painting all together.
What I discovered was that even with a rough deadline to work towards I found if I allowed enough looseness to the plan that it meant I didn't feel under any pressure to complete the models, and that I when was working on them as I enjoyed them far more than if I had rigidly enforced the time I would spend on them.
I hope you've enjoyed following my Marines progress so far, and I'll be writing about their exploits in a few battle reports in the next few weeks!
