September 1939 – Getting there with the painting

I am slowly getting to my objective – to actually start gaming this campaign.
I find nowadays that I cannot stare through a magnifying glass for as many hours as I need to get these models painted. The problem with using a magnifying glass is that the figure gets bigger but you are painting it with a yard broom!
Painting webbing on 6mm high soldiers is a necessary chore, particularly for my Polish troops. If I paint it I can’t see it, but if I don’t paint it the uniform looks bland and incorrect. Catch 22.
My fine point brushes are beginning to fray from too much use with acrylic paint and when I look at the magnified photograph I realise just much I have strayed from the target areas and need to tidy up.
