Cheers :) .

The next tank commander is wondering where her air support has got to:



She's a bit masculine but she'll do :) .

The second Plasma-Tank has been finished (apart from decals) and the command Plasma-Tank is very much paint-in-progress (base-coated apart from a few blobs of green).

I am awaiting the arrival of the last four tanks now... :)

Great work  8)

The sculpt does have a feminine air to it so I wouldn’t worry too much. I didn’t think it was male when I first looked at it  :)

 Great GS work as usual mate,
She reminds me of a soprano singing an aria  :) ;) which could be the case also to keep up morale....

Keep it up

I needed a break from painting tanks... and to be honest, it's a bit humid for painting so I decided to build a few Halfling Snipers:



This is three squads of ten, all washed, cleaned up, filled and based, ready for priming :) .

The good thing is that this means I have ticked off three boxes on my organisation chart... and three platoons now have their ten-strong sniper units :) .

... and then there were six :) :



With the completion of this little platoon, I now have six Leman-Russ proxy tanks finished (apart from decals). Now I have to start all over again with the next three and they will be getting Battle-Cannons :) .

Nice.

Your commander looks to be imploring the spirits of Close Air Support.

Cheers :) ... I was aiming for despair so I am glad it comes across a bit like that :) .

Now for the remaining four tanks for the tank company :) :



The one of the left is waiting for an Agrax wash, the one next to it is waiting for priming/base-coating, the one next to that is waiting for a commander to be sculpted before Priming/base-coating and the opne on the right is the overall company command tank and is waiting for a commander and hull weapon to be sorted out before priming/base-coating.

The weather has been humid so I have avoided most of the painting/sculpting and have just been assembling and gap-filling. I think that I will need to replenish a few paints (namely the green spray) to finish them all... but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Everything has slowed down a bit... mostly due to the lovely sunny weather. That said, I am still doing bits and bobs. Currently, I have two tanks all dirtied up, ready for stippling:



With the tank commander for the third tank finished:



His tank is mostly sprayed green, apart from the turret and a few bits of equipment (that will get sorted today :) ).

This particular tank commander is looking at his digital map while wondering how the hell he ended up so far from where he should be :) .

With the tank commander sculpted, I have progressed and all of the tanks in his platoon, are now decal ready. I just need to finish painting the tank commander :) :

The Platoon Commander is now finished... and so is his platoon (apart from the decals):



I have started sculpting the Company Commander but have stalled... I have got as far as sculpting her torso (with padded armour) and have added a set of speakers to the turret, and a short flag-pole for a pennant to go on. The pose will be the commander speaking into a microphone and possibly holding a bottle of wine or a bouquet of flowers (a small reward from the people after her company has broken the siege on their town).

In the meantime, I have come to the conclusion that I have had no luck finding a Chimera proxy so I have ordered another of these King Tigers to convert into an IFV. Hopefully, the only difficult part will be the turret... but I reckon that I'll cross that bridge when I come to it :) .
