Great work on the airborne figures.

1/35 vehicles can really look like an imposing piece of terrain on the tabletop - great finds

Thank you! I am glad that I was finally able to eliminate my Afghanistan Soviet pile of shame :)

The vehicles will also serve as civilian/third party vehicles, this is why I like to make drivers into them. I might even use them in Gaslands.

Very nicely done, particularly like the rusted armour panels.

Thank you, guys! It is an Italeri model.

I basecoated them black, then painted the most of it brown, then added more and more redish brown paint by hitting it with the brush repeatedly. In the end I lightly drybrushed it with a darker shade of metal.

Super looking truck! :-* :-*
Em dezembro de '81
Botou os ingleses na roda
3 a 0 no Liverpool
Ficou marcado na história
E no Rio não tem outro igual
Só o Flamengo é campeão mundial
E agora seu povo
Pede o mundo de novo

Love the gun truck - a serious piece of kit in that scale

Thank you for your kind comments! I plan to add some baggage and at least 2 additional crew members to it (manning the machine guns), but this is how it came with the kit, I only added the driver. There is a little cheat in this too as the gun truck era in Iraq (the early 2000s) was a little bit after the DBDU uniforms were out of use, they already used DCU and MARPAT uniforms back then.

Some objective markers, as some battles are not fought for honest goals.

After the rabbits, I have some pheasants too (my sculpts again).




...and I also made some more hunters.



Both of them my sculpts originally. One from the gangster shown in my Cthulhu thread (pg3):

, the other one a redneck guy I already painted 3 of:

Nice sculpts. Curious for a Hungarian that you seem to have modelled one as a very good likeness of Julius von Haynau. lol
