Title: 28mm US Infantry
Post by: Gunner Dunbar on April 25, 2015, 02:20:43 AM
Hi guys

Some Warlord Games SS I have finished on commission, I have mixed feelings towards these figures, most of them are nice, proportions are good, but a couple of the poses are a bit funny, some have cartoonish faces, others are quite nice, and the one running with his rifle across his chest has the most absurd head I have seen on a 28mm figure, his helmet goes below his nose, there's no way he could see, but overall I think they are OK.

Beautiful paintjob on mediocre (at best) figures. The shading is superb.

Had a look at your blog, some very nice stuff.
Can you tell us a bit about the crawler at the top of the page?

I agree about the infamous helmet, it looks straight from a 70s B movie... or when I was a kid and tried an Italian Army helmet... lol or when I was trying the different size of K-pots to get my size when I entered the Army Academy... (I was a tad on the small size at the time... let's say I was the first cadet when we lined up in height order...  o_o

for the rest of the miniatures, some looks awesome, some less so, but I will not say they are mediocre at best... I agree that sometime Warlord has some top notch dud... but I would say the best of the line are really nice, plus the painting is awesome. Great work!

Thanks guys

Hi Gamer Mac - the crawler is a converted Matchbox snowplough, I removed the blade, changed the tracks with model tank tracks, added the screen guards, I made it and the crew as part of a swap on another forum, I have another snowplough to make myself one, one day.

I agree about the figures, very Battle Comics stylistically.  That said they do have a certain something painted nicely.  As these are!

Hi guys

The second half of a Bolt action SS force completed, not sure why, but my camera had trouble focusing, so some of the pics are a bit blurry, this batch was a mix of Warlord games and another manufacturer, not sure who, the other guys are a bit bigger and have no base (which is a pain for painting) but look a bit more natural.

Hi guys

Have just finished making/paint 64 plastic Warlord German Grenadiers on commission, a big job, around 65hrs work.

As far as the kit goes, I like them better then the metal Bolt action figs, they are better proportioned and the faces are less cartoony, due to them being plastic the detail isn't as crisp as the metals, but they are still pretty good, my only issues with them is they really could do with more arm options, they need a straight left and right carrying arm so you can pose them carrying weapons at the trail, and they need a pointing arm, it's pretty clichť but good for command poses, also they don't have any shoulder boards/straps, it would be interesting to see how the parts interchange with the other Warlord German plastic infantry kits, I have a project forming in the back of my mind, but that's for the distant future.

Agreed!!  Fine painting!

I looked but didn't see any more crawler pics.
Any other views available?

Being Matchbox is it 28mm, or closer to 15?

Thanks for sharing!!

Hi Valerik
Heres a link to more pics, the figures in the pics are 15mm, I would say the scale is probably 1/76 or 20mm, but works well as a 15mm sci fi vehicle.

Here is a pic of the model before I converted it.

15mm figs huh?

No wonder I didn't find it, wasn't even lookin' there...

Sure they aren't 18s?

You, Sir, do FINE work, on bits I can't even see, much less paint!!

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-q72TBzCaxXA/Tm3iVegK4YI/AAAAAAAADoE/4AzD9c7ydTg/s400/DSC07727.JPG)

Looks quite the business & well in scale for the figures no matter how tall they ain't.

(http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-UCx2xp9XGrs/Tm3iXWGroWI/AAAAAAAADoU/2o5nYJeYgmQ/s400/DSC07725.JPG)

I do like your iteration of the oversized transport, especial the mesh guard panels. 
The Industrial Yellow, corporate markings, & weathering are perfect.

15s huh?

Dayum...

Thankee kindly Gunner!

N.B. The world simply won't believe I'm already using a similar Matchbox beastie  for a Foundation Foundation jungle crawler.
I am only cannibalizing its tracks 'cause of the broken wheel gone missing...
Everyone will know I stole Gunner Dunbar's brilliance.

Hi guys

Finished this batch of 28mm FJs on commission, customer wanted them to be suitable for any front, so added in some desert yellow helmets/pants, these are mostly Warlords plastic FJs, with 4 metals mixed in. I'm pretty impressed with this plastic set, they are very nice, however, I think they have used some parts from the Grenadiers set (the officers head) would have been nice if it was all new.

Hi guys

2 batches of Germans finished on commission, a mix of figures, Warlord, Victory force (without bases) and the odd Black tree design, of the 3 I like the BTD first then warlord then VF, Warlord would be the best if they got rid of the cartoony faces.

Wow, they look fab.

What colours do you use for the field grey bits of uniform?  I've got a bunch of germans to paint up and want to do them as just plain old vanilla troops.  Any guidance on paints would be appreciated.

I used Vallejo field grey for the pants and field blue for the jackets, Russian uniform for the plain jump smocks, when doing Heer troops in plain field grey I make at least 3 different shades of field grey by adding khaki or khaki grey to the field grey, and painting pants and tops in the different shades, this way they look a bit more realistic whilst still looking uniform, if you Google German uniforms you will see there was a lot of variation in colours, this is due to different factories using different dyes and the Germans redying and reissuing captured uniforms.

Hi guys

A batch of German and US Paras finished on commission, these are from offensive miniatures, the first time I have painted this companies figs, they are on the smaller end of the scale for 28mm, and wouldn't mix well with Warlord or Artizan, but would probably suit Perry's figs (though I have not seen Perry's WWII in the hand) just heard they are also on the smaller end, I like the US figs more than the Germans, they look more serious and realistic, but overall they are all OK.

Gunner Dunbar is right - Offensive are on small side, so mix well with Perrys (I have done this with some Italians and they fit in so well I can't figure out which figures are which) but would be way small vs Foundry.  Their FJ and DAK are rather good, wish they would do some more.

Hi guys

Well, I was going to call this group and tutorial done, but as the pastel carrier fluid dried it has gone white around the wheel area, mustn't have stirred it properly, and I think the pastel I have used may be to bright anyway, so I may re do that step, pics aren't great, poor lighting here today, obscuring all the weathering detail, last pics are of the next group of vehicles I'll be working on, also need to do the infantry for this early war German force, all comments welcome.

Hi guys

A model I have been wanting to do for a while as a command piece is Peiper seated in his schwimmwagen, the missing-lynx braille scale board is running a bottletop challenge (basically to build a model that fits in a milk bottle lid) so I thought I would finally do this little piece. The figs will need to be converted to fit the scene.
It wont have much use in a Chain of command platoon, but I'm thinking of turning it into a patrol marker.

I have even painted a miniature of Napoleon, the English would not be happy, let alone the Spanish, I have paint soviets, imagine what a Pole would think, I have even painted Romans, now thatís a can of worms.

Yep, I know itís just a model and Iím well aware that a lot of the participants in the Second World War committed war crimes but when you model a specific individual who was an infamous war criminal that takes it into another space. For what itís worth I have WW2 Japanese but I wouldnít be modelling the personalities responsible for Sandakan or the horrors of Changi.

There's something about the Schwimmwagen that I've always liked. Be nice to have one. But if I did I think I would paint it in swirling psychedelic colours like a 60s dune buggy. I think such a pattern would be so suited for the vehicle. We actually had hymn books with a cover design like that when I was in primary school. Jesus was right in the middle of his "groovy" phase back then, and I have kept that scheme in my mind ever since.

That is a famous photo, but I didn't know Peiper was one of those guys, I was quite interested to discover this fact. But now it turns out it wasn't him at all. Oh well.  :)


I visited Malmedy as a teenager, and it gave me the same kind of sobering chills you get when going to a concentration camp. So I can see where objections might come from (when I discovered what happened to Peiper I wasn't particularly upset about it), but making a model of something doesn't signify approval of the subject matter's outlook or actons. It isn't really the same thing as having a statue of them erected in front of your town hall. Beginning to wonder if it is time I removed the Confederate flags from my 1:600 scale ships. Lord knows, I don't want to upset anyone.

Mines not even a display model, itís a character in a game, not even an important one, leading the troops around, just a patrol marker, I think it OK to have historical characters good or bad on a wargaming table, what if you had a game where you wanted to take out Hitler? Sorry you can make the model, he was a bad guy.

Looking good Gunner. Gotta love a schwimmwagen. I'm waiting on the imminent release of the Rubicon 1/56 scale kit (Yes, apparently even the DAK used them in the Western Desert  ::) lol)

That's definitely not Peiper in the picture. Peiper was one of the Reich's foremost pin-up / poster boys - tall, handsome and immaculately styled. He was a bonafide battlefield commander of course (as well as a war criminal), and was right in the thick of it in the Ardennes. But I somehow doubt he'd ever have appeared quite as down, dirty and ratlike as the lower ranking SS men in that photo.

I wouldn't pay mind to any niggling, unless it is constructive criticism. Right, carlos?

There's a book called "Battle of the Bulge: Then and Now" by Jean Paul Pallud in which he corrects people in assuming it is Peiper. In case you need to quote a source to silence any more niggling. It holds a few variations of the shot as well, if you need more perspectives. Do what you like with the model, there's enough people out there modelling Wehrmacht and SS, seemingly out of the equal fascination that some people collect crusaders, japanese or mass murdering space faring inquisition in smurf blue armour. Do what you like Dunbar.

Great conversion work as usual. Loads of ideas! So which figs did you use for the basis of your conversions?
Title: Re: WIP 20mm Gebirgsjagers
Post by: Gunner Dunbar on July 15, 2019, 10:58:26 PM
Iíve got figs from all over the joint in this group, PSC, Pegasus, Italeri, Imex, zvezda, Armourfast, AB, Elhiem and Caesar, and they come from multiple sets within those.

Hi guys

I was going to do 1 each of a schwimmwagen, Kettenkrad and and kubel as my recon makers for chain of command, but I found this old schwimmwagen in my stash, built 17 years ago, its the Hase kit, I dont like the base coat, to desert yellow in colour, so will re paint it to match this new one, I will buy a third and have a set of 3 as recon makers.
I will be brush painting these, I don't have a dedicated airbrush set up and it takes to much effort to set everything up for 2 kits (that's why I spray paint in batches) I will apply the camo using pastel chalks.
Need to crack on with these only a few days of the challenge to go.

Hi guys

I couldn't find my cadmium oxide which is used for the green camo (its been 15 years since I used it) so tried to mix up some using raw umber and a light green, but its very light, might have to go over it with paint, the red brown came out OK, its all sealed under a matt coat now. Going to do some more work on these this arvo, lots more work needed on the figs to.

Hi guys

Another Braille scale group build challengehttps://www.tapatalk.com/groups/missinglynx/the-next-group-build-start-and-finish-dates-t320238.html (https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/missinglynx/the-next-group-build-start-and-finish-dates-t320238.html) starts this week, this time the topic is "anti", anti tank, or anti aircraft, towed, tracked or wheeled and any gun pressed into either role for any period, this is a 20 week long build.
Rather than start another build (I have lots of kits that fit that category) I thought I would use the opportunity to get a few shelf queens finished, these will be my entries.
2 x Stug IIIG late
1 x Romanian Tacam T60
1 x Romanian cannone da 47/32 (with crew)
1 x Pak 40 (with my winter FJs crew)
1 x Sdkfz 7/1 quad AA (with crew)
1 x 17 pdr AT gun (with crew)

Just out of curiosity (and apologies of its already been answered elsewhere in this thread), but what sort of service did that Romania service see with the German military? I'd imagine that it did cross pollinate to an extent - considering the presence Romania had during the war -, but didn't come across much on the subject when I was looking at it myself a while ago (I do like the look of their converted vehicles, but don't want to start a Romanian or Soviet army just yet).
Title: Re: WIP 1/72 Gebirgsjagers Part 2
Post by: Gunner Dunbar on September 26, 2019, 02:37:24 PM
The expeditionary force, 'Army Group Antonescu,' was composed on 22 June 1941 of the 3rd Army, the 4th Army, the 2nd Army Corps, and the 11th Infantry Division.[9] The 3rd Army comprised the 4th Army Corps (6th and 7th Infantry Divisions), the Cavalry Corps, the Mountain Corps, two separate artillery battalions, a TA unit, and the Air Force's 3rd Army Cooperation Command. The 4th Army consisted of the 3rd Army Corps, the 5th Army Corps, the 11th Army Corps (two fortress brigades), and the 4th Army Cooperation Command. The army group-level 2nd Army Corps, under Major General N. Macici, controlled the 9th and 10th Infantry Divisions and the 7th Cavalry Brigade. Additionally the 1st Armoured Division was formed for service on the Eastern Front

From Wikipedia, quiet substantial.

The book "Third axis, fourth ally" holds some information on it, as it is regarded as a treasure trove of info on the subject, by Mark Axworthy, sadly it is rather hard to come by and expensive.
Title: Re: WIP 1/72 Gebirgsjagers Part 2
Post by: Wyrmalla on September 26, 2019, 04:59:21 PM
Oh yes, that was my point exactly. The Romanians had tonnes of troops in service. Rather my query was if there's many accounts of the Germans using there gear, in the case of Gunner Dunbar's models I'm assuming. Of course anything can happen in war so its justified, it was just a curiosity on whether there's any accounts.

...Because I was thinking of doing the same thing. :)

Lovely figures and great painting as usual, I saw them earlier on TMP too. Incidentally, can you still post there? Their new policy is that only paying advertisers can post on their forums: when asking specifically about the painting services forum I was told that "yes, since you are obviously a commercial enterprise since you paint for money, you should be a paying advertiser to post over here". I guess that forum is now mostly reserved to Fernando...

Hi guys

I bought a resin 3D printer a few months back, and have been putting it to good use on my 15mm 40K projects, but I really wanted to print some historical stuff, so did some test prints for my WWII early war French, with mixed results, all files were obtained of Thingyverse, theres a fair few free WWII files available, enough to make it worthwhile, more to supplement a collection than to be the source of a whole collection,  I think all these files were scaled to 1/72nd, however I researched vehicle dimensions and made any adjustment just in case, (I don't think there was much adjusting needed) all printing errors are mine, need to adjust supports for some of the models the tanks turned out quite nice, the trucks are OK, but 1 wheel has a flat spot, and some of the cars aren't great, only happy with 1 I think, the 2 vans need re doing as well, figs are from Simons soldiers, and a Heller Somua and a pre made Char B1 for scale. I'll try and fix any errors with green stuff,  if Im not happy with the results I'll use them as wrecks for scatter terrain, I have a fair few trucks, tanks and even guns, to test print yet, even have a couple of aircraft.

These resin printers are amazing I highly recommend getting one, mines a creality LD002R

heres  a list of the vehicles in the pics

1x Peugeot DK5 Ambulance

1x Peugeot MNB 1939

3x AMR-35 tanks (this one was scaled down from 1/56)

2x Citroen traction 11B Berline

2x Citroen traction Berline leger

2x Renault AGR trucks

Hi guys

Yes, wheels are all in the truck, and no, these aren't for sale, these are my own collection, all files free of Thingyverse
 Hi guys

Several people asked me on my last post, how much do these cost to print, well I got a 500g bottle of resin, it was $36 Australian, around $27.50 US, and this is what I printed, with enough resin left over for maybe 2 more vehicles, all 1/72, so about $1.71 per vehicle/gun, there is some extra cost in LCD and FEP replacement, it probably comes out to around $1.80-$1.90 per.

Pretty happy with how these turned out, a couple of small errors here and there, but nothing I can't fix with a bit of green stuff, in this test print we have the following

2x Berliet VUDB

2x Citroen traction 11B (re print to work out kinks)

2x Citroen legere (re print to work out kinks)

2x Citroen U23

2x Laffley S45

1x Command Panhard

1x Panhard

4x W15 Variants

1x Peugeot 301

1x 155mm Mk2

1x 75mm Frances

They don't need to be 1/72, you can print a file at any scale, you just need to re scale them in a slicer.

Hi guys

I had 2 discs replaced and fused in my neck last week, so I have some "light" hobby time on my hands while I recover, I received a new Iwata airbrush for Christmas which I had not had a chance to use, so I have had a day of airbrush work on my Stalingrad, Romanian and French WWII projects. Wow, I didn't think there would be much difference between my old sparmax and the new Iwata airbrushes, but I must say the Iwata is a much better tool.

Thankfully never fractured mine, injured my neck 3 or 4 times playing Army Rugby in the 90s, and developed osteoarthritis, but it hasn't been quite a week yet, and I already think theres going to be  an improvement.

Did some more work on these over last couple of days, added chipping, blackened the wheels and barrels, base coated the tracks and added various filters, next up a gloss coat, decals and a pin wash, the CharB1 bis needs some other camo colours added.

Hi guys

Have gloss coated, added decals, pin washed, matt coated then added oil steaking, next up a dry brush, maybe another pin wash, and will start adding mud and dust. Have left the Char B1 out from this process, on the side I have started putting together my French force, I'll slide him into that project after this one is completed.

More work on my Stalingrad German/Russian/Romanian projects, have painted the details (they still need a highlight) then did an overall dry brushed. Next I will highlight the tools, canvas rolls/stowage, then a mud wash, then some pastels.

Any particular Romanian units? The units fighting to the south across the Don with 16th Panzer or on the northern flank with 21st Panzer?

Have you seen the Battlestorm Stalingrad series on YouTube ? It is fantastic for the campaign, he pulls together three or four books with a situation map.

Hi guys

More work on my 1/72 Stalingrad German/Russian/Romanian project, have

1) detailed most stowage/tools (still have some details to do)

2) added a light mud wash

3) added a darker mud wash

4) added straight mud paint

5) panted the crews in the Romanian vehicles

6) mounted on their bases

Next I will be working on the crew figs, adding flock, finishing off any last details and I will be finished.

I have painted up some 20mm FAA  Romanians, just need to flock the bases, these will supplement my plastic Romanians, converted from Hat WWI Germans and Hat Romanians, and I have made a start on construction of my next  project, early war French, all the grey vehicles are 3D printed, tanks are a mixture of Trumpeter Char B1s, Heller S35s, and Matchbox Ft-17s, I have another 8 s-model tanks coming in the mail, a mix of S35s and 38Hs, and I have a bunch of Simon Soldiers French which will supplement my plastic French figures.

Hi guys

Basing finished on my Romanians, this force was built around a platoon + sized force for Chain of Command, and I will now expand it to a Battalion + sized force for O group, a question, in the first pic, the figures on the left are metal FAA and those on the right are Hat plastic Romanians and converted WWI Germans to Romanians, which to you think are better? I'm leaning towards the plastic Hat figures, I have more of those I can add to the force, for more figures I'm thinking of either Shellhole scenics Romanians in greatcoats, or Strelets Romanians who are also dressed for winter, I have 2 more 38ts in the stash but will need more armour and guns from Shellhole scenics to fill the ranks.

I sometime think plastic figures are better detailed than some metal figures and the weapons on plastic are more realistic size and not as chunky as metal
But I am afraid it is a personal prefrence thing usewhat you like the best.

Hi guys

I'm half way through these German infantry for my Stalingrad project, have done the base coat and an oil wash, will do highlights next.

I have also started a terrain tile project, I bought this green teddy bear fur 6 years ago, and have used it as a gaming mat with scatter terrain laid over the top, but I wanted to give a tile terrain system a go, using cork floor tiles for a base, then foam to give depth, and the fur over the top which I will shape, I have a sand coloured fur on order for variety.

I have a creality Ld002R, it comes with a pre levelled printing plate, itís very easy to use, but there is a learning curve, you need a slicing software like chitubox and when you slice your files you need to be aware of where you place your supports and what angle you have your objects leaning, also you will need to hollow out vehicles and put in drain holes, watch a few videos before you use the printer.

Hi guys

Done some more work on my teddy bear terrain tiles, it will be a general purpose board for all eras and genres, designed to fit 15mm-28mm, have shaved the dirt roads out with clippers, reduced the tyre ruts down with a long necked bbq lighter, I'll glue sand into the tyre ruts and paint brown, the long brown/white stripe on the right will be a river, I plan on filling it with clear resin after detailing the river bed, and will be shaping the grass in differant areas, and colouring it various greens/yellows/browns, I need to make more tiles with a single end to end road, have done enough t/y/x intersection, and will do more farming and plain fields, as well as some scatter hills and other terrain, plan on train tracks, houses to suit Russian, Normandy and some fantasy/Medieval buildings and a bridge accross the river as well as some shallow river crossings.

Hi guys

I received 3 packs of S-model tanks for my French force today, so will resume prepping that force for painting.

I done some more painting on my Stalingrad German infantry, still a fair bit to do on them.

Have added gravel to my roads on the teddy bear terrain, will paint them with a very dark brown with some white glue added to bind the gravel together a bit more, then dry brush mud brown.

Hi guys

Have done some more work on my terrain tiles, (have laid it out without really trying to make a coherent map, just for these pics) painted the road dark brown, and gave them a very light dry brush, this makes them look muddy, not sure if I want this terrain to be lush and muddy, or dry and dusty if I choose dry and dusty I will need to add more yellow to the grass and heavily dry brush the roads, as this is a generic terrain for all genres (but I am working on my WWII Russian projects currently) should I keep it lush or go dry? I've also got a piece of sandy coloured fur coming, enough for another 6 tiles, which will need a heavy green painting to mix in with this terrain, with those 6 tiles I'll do 3 with single end to end roads, and 3 plain fields/crop fields.

My next job is to seal the river sections with masking tape, then cover with grit and paint, I will be filling these with clear resin, so the masking tape will stop the resin leaking out between the cork and foam.

Hi guys

I was going to call these done, but I think I need to do some more work on the faces, but for all intense and purposes, they are done, will be doubling or tripling this infantry force, for now I'm moving on to my French Project for a bit.

Most of these are AB's, with some TQD, CP, Battlefield and Italeri, I replaced all MG42s with MG34s.

Hi guys

More work on the teddy bear terrain tiles with 4 new tiles from a sandy coloured fur I received recently, I could have heavily painted them green to match the other tiles, but thought I would let the sand colour show to provide some difference, each square is 1 foot/30cm, the tank is a 1/72  Sherman for scale, I have been working on the scatter terrain, starting with some train tracks, need to paint the ballast on these, and get some bends to add to the set.

I also added a pic of my recent kit purchases, lots of Russian summer and winter infantry, and some vehicles for my Barbarossa/Stalingrad projects and a Panther D for Kursk, and some figures for my BEF project.

And lastly a pic of my current builds, I like to spray paint in batches, so will build double this amount then break out the airbrush.

On the train track, have a look at how Kato (small train company) does their set track, as they have interlocking mechanisms that make for a perfect join but they open and close with ease. Just a suggestion as otherwise you get that broken track look going.

Hi guys

I have expanded my 1/72 early French force with a few tanks, and have gotten them all to a basic standard, and now I'll start detailing and adding stowage etc, starting with a Laffly S15 and V15 Artillery tractors, these are wargaming models not display models, so I am just getting them to a decent standard.

I have added some detail to the bonnet, a seem down the middle and a radiator cap, the detail in the back of the printed models crew compartment was very shallow and didn't match my example pic, also the rear of the vehicle looked to short, so I raised the whole thing by a couple of mm and re configured the bins, added a folded down roof and rolled canvas doors.

If it were a display model Id do something about the tyre tred, but I'll leave that, not sure if I should replace the window frame, I'll be adding a couple of tools to the rear panel, some stowage, then a couple of crew, and after painting I'll add clear windows, then onto the V15.

Is this a 3D model you have bought, or printed?

Iím quite intrigued by you adding to the model using classic scratch building techniques (plastic card and green stuff) rather than changing the STL file, and reprinting the model.

Thanks, yes resin is the way to go, but they are still only as accurate as the 3D sculptor.

Hi guys

Have started detailing the Laffly S45 recovery vehicle, I wanted to replace the thick bed walls, but whilst these models are pretty solid and sturdy, the resin is prone to shatter, and I'm worried I'll damage the truck if I try to cut them out, so I'm going to get creative with my painting to make them less noticeable, also there is a fault in the vehicle deign, the creator has made the bed floor 1 even shallow level, it should have a bench seat down either side and a foot well down the middle, so I have partitioned the foot well off with 2 plastic strips, cut a 44 gallon drum in half and positioned them in the foot well area to look like there is depth. I've also scratch built a crane, replaced the ugly windscreen with a folded down one, and added some crew, I considered doing some work on the spade at the back, but might leave it due to time, these are wargaming standard after all, not display.

The S15 got a new windscreen frame from the spares box, and the v15 got a fold down windscreen, the thick crappy windscreens are a weak point with these prints.

Hi guys

Next up on the mat is a 1/72 Renault AGR, this STL file printed out a little wonky, with some funny indents on the right hand door, there's no door detail, so I will engrave them in, add door handles, window wipers, rear view mirrors, stowage in the bed, and the grill is designed smooth, so adding a radiator grate, the miss shaped wheels are a print error, I'll be rounding them out with some putty.

I have finished the Laffly S45 with a folded down drivers cab tilt.

Yeah, it would be a good skill, unfortunately I'm a bit old school.

Hi guys

Finished with the Renault AGR, scribed the door frame, added a seam under the window, widow wipers, door handle, and stowage, and filled out the miss printed wheels, a bit rough, but its a wargaming model.

Started on the Laffly S15 TCC, added seam down the bonnet, radiator cap, and gun barrel, the gun shield was very short, so added some length to it, will be detailing the gun breech area and adding crew next.

 Hi guys

1/72 Laffly S15 TCC finished, added some detail to the breach and some Hat crew figures.

Next I was going to start on the printed 1897 75mm gun, but comparing it to the Hat offering I have decided to go with the later, the Hat model is soft plastic, but the gun shield is much better detailed, and you get the later wheels (enough for 2 guns) in the Hat artillery set, whilst the printed version has better details on things like the elevation and baring wheels, Ive made up the guns and will look to see if I need to add any extra details to them, I may take the elevation/baring wheels of the resin model and add them to the Hat one.

You could keep the printed one for Infantry formations, they tended to have the older wheeled versions as their guns where still often horse drawn.

I think there was another version of wheels, which where solid (not spoked) with rubber tyres.

That's the version Warlord Games do in 28mm, I have an undercoated one beside me at my desk.

Glad it is a version - I was thinking of the 10mm ones I have, but didnít have chance to dig them out to check earlier!

Very nice. May I ask what colour you used for the equipment? It looks spot on to me, and I have a bunch of GIs to paint.

If you are interested in BTD GIs I believe Colonel Bills has a bunch in stock.

Well painted.
I really like the BT Americans.
I picked my guys up from before Black Tree became Black Tree.

Great rendition of GIs.  I think the colors are spot on! 

I like the BT fellas too.  One of my wargaming buddies gave me several of them.  Been fitting them into my units as appropriate/needed/wanted.

Yeah BT are alright, nice to paint, I collect 1/72-20mm but if I were to start 28mm Iíd  go with Empress though, Iím a Paul Hicks fan.

I've got some of the empress US boys already painted up.  Gotta paint up another squad of them sometime.

Got an Empress British platoon waiting in the wings, as well.

And I never got into 20mm WW2.  20mm AWI, War of 1812, Vietnam, and neo-modern, yes.  But for some reason, not WW2.

I know.  They are great figs.  But as my glasses get stronger, the figs I paint get bigger.;)
Started in 15mm.  Then 20mm.  Now it's 28mm...
