(AP 2019) Tunisia in Ď42
« on: June 29, 2018, 07:12:05 PM »
I havenít 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 Iíll need to paint up a platoon for each side plus some support elements.  Iíll 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!

Iíve finished the first German squad. 


Iím not entirely happy with them; I think I need larger contrasts between the base and highlights.  Iíll try that on the US squad Iím 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.

I havenít given up on this.  I just havenít kept up with my schedule, and my light box has been full of random junk I never got around to putting away.  Now itís clear, and Iíve gotten some photos of the second US and German squads.

US second squad:


US first and second squads together:


German second squad:


German first and second squads together:


On the second squads, I went with just a base color and highlight rather than base/mid/highlight.  On comparing them to the first squads, I think it doesnít work on the uniforms, but I can get away with it on everything else.
