@ tin shed gamer: Thanks very much for posting that, very interesting to see. I like those figures and would be interested in getting some.

I finally developed enough backbone to try my hand at adding unit badges to my Brits, those without smocks. Chickened out of a couple of the prone blokes, as I couldn't get a brush in, let alone control it.

Those do look good.

Lovely work. I confess I would have chickened out and printed up some decals...

It's quite the morale boost . When a fiddly detail works on mass. With mine I took the short cut and sculpted a basic/stylised regimental cresent and square on mine.Just so I don't have to stress so much when I get round to painting.
Simon and Mick moulded pretty much everything I sent them. So as soon as I get some castings. I'll let you know

Thanks guys; it was something I wanted to do from the start, just wasn't sure how. All that 'practice' with trying to paint eyes on my NAM & WW2 blokes seems to have helped; holding my breath at the right time and swearing profusely also played a part in their own way.

Cracking job on the snipers, the Stug riders in new position and the unit badges!  :D

I find that works for many other activities, too.

Tarted up my German vehicles with an attempt at a winter white wash:







Covered up the fugly gap in the rear turret armour with a rather chunky zeltbahn

That's worked really well. Can I ask how you did it?

I dabbed some Vallejo 'Liquid Mask' over them, with a bit of blister foam.
Then sprayed a layer of model Color 'White'. Rubbed off the rubbery stuff with an old brush, then went over some bits with Q tip dipped in Airbrush cleaner.

Thanks for that, they've come out really well. I've recently taken advantage of the Warlord sales to buysome winter Germans so I am keen to get a handle on the techniques.

This was a first for me, probably went a bit heavy on the removal, but I suppose I can always spray more white and have another go.
Also getting into character for adding a snow effect to all the infantry bases...

NO.

I reckon they look fantastic.
