That's a great looking figure.  Only not sure quite how I would use him in a wargame. 'Tanker eating dinner'.

Mess tin full of bully beef acts as an extra close combat weapon...

Causes fear and revulsion in opponent, +1 in close combat?

I dread to think what the inside of the tanks must have smelled like.

He could be a base insert in a small diorama, or a round counter or something. Definitely a cool figure though! And a great paintjob too!

Found another one (must be from the same set), suitably armed with a cup of tea.

Also found a mortar team, I'm pretty sure it's from Warlord.

I like the mortar team, the jerkins work well. Getting harder and harder to resist. Now, if only I could find a 3d file for a buffalo amphibian.

Just buy the Rubicon one, you know you want to and it’s a very nice kit. They even do a Polsten as a separate add on.

Yes it is Warlord and sculpted by myself.

Bloody nice work. I don't generally use mortar teams as they are off table. But they are very tempting.

Ah, sorry if this has been asked before, but what are you using for snow and why does it look way better than mine?   ;D

Cheers for all the feedback chaps.

Great, I was pretty sure it was. Found it all on eBay, thought the helmets had a familiar look to them. Looking forward to your new set.

No probs, it's just Woodland Scenics 'soft flake snow', mixed with some watered down PVA and somewhat unceremoniously plonked on with a knackered old brush.
Only issue I've had with it so far was adding it ontop of Vallejo 'Thick Mud', it (the snow) started to turn green, as colour leached out. This did not happen with the models that had been sitting in a box for weeks/months, just the fresher applications. So I can only assume that the 'mud' takes quite a while to fully cure. I did try some (when redoing the green snow) by sealing the surface with varnish and some Vallejo Environment Acrylic Snow (textured white paint) prior to adding the Woodland Scenics suff, which seemed to do the trick. That said I didn't use the mud on this last lot, didn't see the point as it would end up hidden by the snow anyway.

Have a look for a copy of:



Lots of superb pictures.

I know, it looks great, but I'm now addicted to translucent green resin :)

With mess tin bloke.

Just need another chap reading a newspaper and they'll look full on ferocious.

Got these from the same seller.
German looks like one from the Warlord bailed out German tank crew, no idea about the British bloke, I rather liked the body armour, as it cropped up earlier in the thread.
