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.

Back to the Brushes 123

Moving on to phase two of the painting set for the AHPC VII which includes Mk 2 universal carriers, a Mk 1 Bren carrier and two jeeps. All of the carriers are from Frontline Wargaming and are 20mm resin kits.

Three of the carriers shown here waiting on their dark olive base coat. Had to fill some of the joins as there were quite a few spaces showing post undercoating.

The two jeeps, the nearest being from SHQ and the other from Frontline Wargaming

Mk 1 Bren Carrier

After tomorrow will be able to show a few completed pictures from the challenge.

Cheers for now
