@ Sparrow, Carlos, Blackwolf, Mick & Tom; thanks very much, I'd been looking forward to these since Paul H showed the WIP pics last year. I had one of the lockdown deal packs arrive the day before so used some of them to test some camo.


Absolutely gorgeous mate, the colours for the Tiger stripe and ERDL (or whatever it's called) are bang on. You'll have to let us know the colours you used when you get 5 minutes, they'll be handy for when the SAS get released.

For the ERDL (Engineer Research and Development Laboratory) camo, there are two types predominent green & predominent brown, my effort probably ended up somewhere in the middle. used (all Vallejo) 'German cam. Beige' for the base, green bits: 'Splinter strips' & 'English Uniform' for the brown, black squiggles 50/50 'black & black grey'.

Tiger stripes: I went with a base of 'US Dark Green' & 'Grey Green' approx 50/50. The stripes 50/50 'Black & Black Grey', the thin lighter stripey bits were a mix of the 'Grey Green & Deck Tan', then some little thinned down bits of 'German cam. medium Brown'

Used this bloke as a test, as I had only done the black stripes on him before.




Postie just dropped off the MACV SOG...

Thanks, I and saving and printing that out now.  lol
The SEALS and SOG look great.
Looking forward to seeing LRRPs when they come out.
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

These were just for fun on some doubles I had, probably add them to the recon marines.

They look very nice indeed.

This thread and a few others like it resulted in me visiting the Empress Miniatures site and ordering a couple of packs.  :)

Hell YES!

Sten Gun and RPD(obviously) dudes are by far my favorites!

Your tiger work is awesome and the 'spraypainted' camo stripes is a very cool authentic touch!

Very well done, good sir!
