Plastic Soldier Company: British and British Khaki Sprays Reviewed!


This is review was made as part of a cooperation between Mighty Miniatures and Wargames News and Terrain regarding the publishing of wargame related reviews. Mighty Miniatures is is a one-man wargaming venture consisting of a modelling and review site plus a second hand market. By this cooperation we can offer you interesting reviews about wargame products of scales and genres we currently don't play and also as experienced by another seasoned wargamer. As these reviews were originally made by the Tomasz over at Mighty Miniatures I cannot answer questions regarding the reviewed products but if you have questions, please comment and I will forward the question to Tomasz. Let's take a look at these useful army sprays of Plastic Soldier Company.

Introduction

A lot of us really liked army sprays produced for Battlefront. They were good, easy to use and helped a lot with painting your armies quick. For some unknown reason (there are lots of rumours, but I will not be going into them right now) BF stopped their productions and soon it was just next to impossible to get them anywhere. It was only matter of time before somebody would step in to fill that gap in the market and it was Will from the Plastic Soldier Company. Some time later new sprays, produced in co-operation with guys responsible for Army Painter hit the market. I managed to get couple of cans courtesy of Luke from Onslaught Games (apparently somebody gave them to him after being really disappointed) so decided to check for myself.


Testing the sprays

I got two colours- British and British Khaki. Sprays are divided into armour and infantry one, “British” being one for vehicles and second one is for Brit uniforms. They look very nice with big picture of either tank or a soldier on them, so nobody will make any mistakes. British spray for armour was all good. Sprayed in equal layers, bit thin but covered surface of the model really well and had no “powdery” feel so common with Army Painter sprays. It is not as thick as for example Games Workshop primers or now out of production Battlefront ones, but still does the job.


British Khaki was the same, bit thin but again final effect was satisfactory. Only problem with this one was that it leaked quite bad so I had to spray it whilst holding a tissue on cap, otherwise everything ended up covered in spots of paint. I am not sure if this is just a faulty copy or is this a problem with a whole range.


Conclusion

All in all it is a very welcome addition for any of us that don’t like to spend too much time painting and at £ 8.50 a can it is a good investment.This product is availabledirectly from Plastic Soldier Company.
