Excellent.
Much nicer than the usual Warlord Games WW2 figures. Less grotesque. More natural looking. I like them very much. Bravo.

Hi guys.

No painting for today, but some WIP of the coming minis :

- 75mm, 3D printed from https://www.jjgprint3d.com/. Painting in progress, but still some work to do :


- chenillette Renault UE with 25mm AT gun (minis from Mad Bob Miniatures, stowage from Rubicon Models) :



- UNIC P107 with 75mm gun. Vehicle converted from Mad Bob Miniatures model (stowage from Warlord Games and Rubicon Models, plasticard), but the driver and the 75mm gun are 3D printed by JJG Print :




Some work to do, but it goes in the good direction !  :D

Cool stuff, the Renault UE are so dinky are not they! And the wheels on the 75mm are huge, you wonder if they looked at the old spoked wheels and said, make one like that but with rubber tyres.

Yes, the wheels are really big, but many 75mm guns were modified in 1938 to have rubber tyres on metal wheels (first pic : open metal wheel with a solid rubber band, or second pic : plain metal wheel with inflatable tyre). So they can be towed by trucks without using undercarriage (third image, very bad pic, I know).

So this gun represent a 75mm model 1897, with a gun carriage in service after 1933, and plain metal wheels and inflatable tyres.

The woodwork on those ammunition crates is amazing. What's your exact technique?
