Outstanding painting.

Thanks for all the comments guys, much appreciated.

Re terrain: I'd like to do some boards, with features such as  a river line, a koppie, room for a small village/kraal etc.
have to try and make it work for both 20 & 28mm. Just random thoughts at the moment.

Here's the whole lot. Eureka miniatures Rhodesian African Rifles:











After rescuing the MAG bi-pod from the bin, I misplaced it again and made a replacement from bits. It looks a tad long now looking at the pics. Also had a go at getting some white into the eyes, but after cocking it up repeatedly, I've left them black.

I can't believe you even tipped the tracer rounds on the MAG gunner's ammo belt...  :o

Show-off.  ;)

Truly nice work. The period is becoming so tempting. I'm tipping that the CoC variant for Modern Wars will push a few people over the edge for this period. I even searched for a battered old Bedford on Ebay the other day.
Cheers,

Thanks for all the kind comments guys. These were great fun to do.
Think I'll go back and cut down that bi-pod, was not until I looked at it on screen that the legs looked so long.


@ Arlequín: Well spotted; I can't take credit for the tracer rounds idea, I saw it on this most excellent blog. .
http://johnwynnehopkins.wordpress.com/

These Eureka minis were the first thing that was big enough to make it worth trying out.

@ Happy W: The skin on the RAR blokes is Vallejo German cam.black/brown, highlighted with...Vellejo Highlight Germ.(Black) 337. Bottom lip a touch of Vallejo Burnt Cad.Redy. Then a couple of washes of the original colour and a wash of very thin black.

The Selous Scout was Vallejo Flat flesh (955), washed with a thin brown and highlighted with Vallejo light flesh. The Portuguese troops were Vallejo 912 Tan yellow as a base, a wash of some old citadel (GW) flesh wash, then highlighted with flat flesh and a bit of light flesh (Vallejo)

Going to be back to 20mm after this, I've got the new RAR minis from Under Fire on order . . . Time to break out the glasses again!

The 20mm figure could almost be a bushman scout.  ;)

John's blog is excellent, as a button counter and proud, now knowing how many water trailers a RAR battalion had was a moment of lifelong fulfilment for me.
