Looks like this topic is changed into some tanks exclusive topic :D

I'm a former tanker - so that's OK with me... :D

And your tanks look good!

Hahaha, glad to hear that!

Here is a quick update.

As promised, this update includes some minis; the first squad for the US platoon is finished, well, sort of.
As I'm way behind schedule to have those lads finished for the game in July, I decided to stick to basics to catch up. So block painting, wash and finishing bases so they are ready to go. And the plan is to get back to them later... :D



Cheers,
Seb

They certainly will do the trick for a game.  Well done!

They are looking good. I know its a classic wargaming excuse/explanation/argument but it does work. I painted my German Heer with just this intent and once Id played a couple of games with them (I dont mind playing unpainted but its just not the same) I found I returned easily to highlighting and detailing/improving them.

Keep up the good work,

Thanks, lads.


Progress so far :)



I'm almost there; just, what, nine minis left. After that, I will try to add some support options. MMG and mortar for a start. 

I got a bit of a hobby kick with those guys.

Cheers,
Seb

Almost there, just a few bases to finish, and my platoon of US GIs is ready to liberate Normandy.
Quite a productive weekend, and I even manage to get some work on my DAK and the upcoming Soviet Scouts, Huzzah!



I still need to paint an MMG team, but it looks like I will be doing this when visiting family aboard. Anyway, it will be a PVA and sand session this evening, and I hope to take a shot of the whole platoon together.

Cheers,
Seb

And the platoon is ready to librate NW Europe :D

They are not the best paint job in the world, but they are finished and ready for the game, and that's what counts.



I manage to finish another 4 DAK minis from the old Airfix set.



As I'm on an annual summer trip to visit family, so don't expect much of minis painted here for the next few weeks, but I do work on another tank :D

Cheers,
Seb

Awesome stuff sir! The slightly faded DAK uniforms are excellent.

Have a great holiday,

So, summer is over, and the pile got bigger :D



But to be fair, I managed to finish some stuff. For example, the Soviet Scouts, but that's work...

Anyway, here is the first model from the pile that is getting almost finished.


Crusader Mk.II by IGB getting some enamel wash treatment


And here is the same Crusader after tidying up a bit

It looks like I will need some Brits in shorts at some point to go along the Crusader. The Grille and Stug are already under the sample, but both models are a bit painful in the back to build. Stug IV has some slightly bent frames, so it needed some extra care to get it right, and Grille will be a rider as the models has a fair chunk of flash all around the parts.

I should probably start working on some 15mm Germans for a game of IABSM next year... but it seems that 20mm will be on the menu for a few more weeks.

Cheers,
Seb
