I purchased the Bolt action Band of brothers starter set by Warlord Games back in the fall of 2017.

With the emperor, I didn’t think that my blacks were well varied, so I wanted to do that better this time. At the same time, I wanted to be true to film and avoid over-highlighting the miniature to prevent a cartoony feel that can occur when painting and highlighting black.
