AP 2018 Tunisia in ‘42
« on: June 29, 2018, 07:12:05 PM »
I haven’t had much luck with these APs so far, but this go around will be different. I mean it this time.  :)

My plan for Bayou Wars 2019 is to run a (fictional) scenario between the US and the DAK in Tunisia, using the Five Men in Kursk rules.  To handle 8 players I’ll need to paint up a platoon for each side plus some support elements.  I’ll also need to make appropriate buildings and other terrain suitable for the area.  Figures are Old Glory (Command Decision) and Peter Pig.

My goal is to finish one squad a month, with the terrain work mixed in.  The first step is to get a squad for each side painted up so I can play some small games right away.

IT sounds like you are going about it the right way. A small bit at a time until you are at the right spot.
Jane! Stop this crazy thing!

I’ve finished the first German squad. 


I’m not entirely happy with them; I think I need larger contrasts between the base and highlights.  I’ll try that on the US squad I’m painting next.

The first US squad is complete.



I added some black lining to these and to the Germans, it really brings out the detail a lot more.
