Thanks very much, chaps!

MILAN ATGM team. Will need to get the finger out and do the second one at some point (and yet another bloody 432 for them to trundle about in...)
Proudly not painting Wars of The Roses since... ever

Cracking work!  :D

Your paint jobs are lovely and clean, but I feel it's the basing that really sets them off  :)

Oddly, the basing is something I'm not that happy with. If it wasn't for the work involved (particularly with things like weapon teams) I'd redo it!

SHELDRAKE (Artillery)

Forward Observation Officer and his jalopy. Quite pleased with the little FOO vignette.

Figure by Elhiem, Ferret Scout Car by S&S. I may change this for a turretless version at some point, and relegate this to convoy escort duty with the Scarsdale Yeomanry (the recce element of the 1 ATHOLL Battlegroup...)

That's a great paintjob, the decals and the way you do the lenses on the lights are the perfect finishing touches.

Awesome stuff, just about to start a 15mm project for the late 70s/early 80s myself
Can you tell me what paints you used for the vehicles? They look exactly how I would like mine to look

Thanks gents!

Humbrol 86 for the green, 33 for the black.

Another oddball in an armoured formation, the CVR(W) Fox armoured car. Will probably fudge it that it's a scratch battlegroup made up of whatever was available, the recce element in this case being another TA regiment, the Scarsdale Yeomanry, equipped with Fox/Ferret A/Cs... which means I can possibly justify a few "Dougal" Lannies flung into the mix too...

I need to go back and add smoke dischargers and possibly a callsign to the turret, and might even go as far as a turned brass RARDEN...
