I have finished painting the Australian Commandos. Here they are. Nice
figures but I really don't know how they can ever be used in wargame if
they play their commando role. Their basic tactic, as one of them put it,
was 'Punch and Piss off' which does not make a very interesting game.
And yes Owen guns often came out of the factory painted in camouflage
colors. I did a minor bit of conversion on the figure with the rifle
turning it into an EY grenade firing rifle as by 1945 this was the only
type of rifle they tended to use apart from sniper rifles.
