It has been a few weeks since my last post so I thought I had better stick something on the blog.
I have been very busy preparing lots of stuff and I have another large order on way, so I want to get as much stuff assembled and primed whilst the weather is good outside for spraying. As the House of Stark would say 'Winter is coming'.
Some of the metal stuff from the pionier set which I have used with the German early and late war plastic sets. I even used some bits for the British engineers that I listed above.
Some 'Jump-off points' for Chain of Command.
A Perry Miniatures Bren carrier.
This is a test piece for a Regiment of American infantry during the War of 1812. (Scott's Brigade) They are from a company called Knuckleduster and are very nice sculpts. 'Flags of War' do flags for these so I will be placing an order in the near future.
I went up into the loft and pinched a few of my son's old die cast toy lorries that I thought would be a suitable scale for 28mm and that I could use for my modern periods. It was also an opportunity for me to experiment painting vehicles and trying out some weathering techniques as this is all new to me and I didn't want to make a balls up on some expensive vehicles I bought for using in Afghanistan and WW2.
The containers below were from a toy plastic lorry which I primed white and then painted and weathered.
The figures below are from Empress Miniatures, I have also finished a Warrior and a couple of jeeps plus some more die cast vehicles suitable for this conflict which I will put in a future post.
Off now to visit a few of your blogs for a change.
