Back to the Brushes 125

Been a bit under the weather the last few weeks, well we all have really which has meant nothing serious getting done on the hobby front during this time.

So here are the pictures taken before the onset of the family lurgy

A new edition, the Hellcat from MMS Models. A heavy all metal pieces that will hopefully be complete by the end of challenge. Pictured next to him is the Curtgeld figure from the Penda vignette from Gripping Beast. Might have to paint this set again in the future.

A Sexton from Britannia Models, not a challenge piece as it was originally start some years back.

Three more Mk II Carriers that are a bit further on than shown as are the Heavy Plasma cannons shown below from Ground Zero Games

Originally started for West the Rangers of Ithilien will have to muster for characters from a book theme.

There you have it, best part of two weeks out of action and very little to show for it.

Hoping to change this over the next few days.

Cheers for now

The Dance of Bronze 14

A tale of two scales.

First up are Greek Light  Cavalry from Rapier Miniatures in 6mm. Based for ADG and a test black undercoat as opposed to white undercoat. The jury is out on this at the moment.

Next is a casualty figure from Immortal Miniatures (now Warlord Games) in 28mm. Based for use as a casualty marker in Basic Impetus or Impetus.

There will be more from this period throughout the year

Cheers for now

All Hell Let Loose 13

It's been awhile since there has been a post relating to WW2 here and it possibly could be awhile before there is another one; that said here are two armoured cars that have recently been seen here as a part of the Armour bonus round.

Both miniatures are from Frontline Wargaming and are both easy to make and easy to paint. Above left is a Sf Kdz 221 and right a Sf Kdz 223.

These have been painted using a mixture of base coating, washing and dry brushing and fuller description of this can be seen at the link above.

Decals from Skytrex

What the Jabos saw

More of both completed figures and work in progress to follow shortly.

Cheers for now.
