I ditched enamel paints back in the 1990s and now use acrylics. While I mostly use Vallejo paints, I look out for cheaper paint for the colours which I'll use a lot of . The 'Crafter's Choice' range can be found in The Works for £1 each.

The bases are now painted - I generally paint them green using Dulux matt emulsion paint. Woodland Fern 1 in fact, which I have mixed to order in a 1-litre tin.
Next - varnish and finishing.
