Keeping up the progress

I've had a productive day today. Firstly I've finish these guys.

Yep, the Soviet Tank Riders are complete, 17 bases of infantry (I made 2 extra SMG stands to allow me to also use them as Motorstrelkovy and a second command stand).

Today I've also build and based, and primed all my Necromunda figures, and built an FV432 and 3 FV438 for Team Yankee, I've also primed some more Soviet stuff. I'm hoping tonight to finish building 2 Harrier Jump Jets for Team Yankee, and maybe start building Stuarts.

So plenty to do!

Trying to keep on track!

Well work hasn't helped this month, but I have got something done!

Here to can see 10 T-70 tanks I've managed to get painted. They aren't great in game but I really like the models and it gives me a large unit of cheap formation troops for my Soviets to make them more resilient.

Currently on the painting table is a unit of Tank Rider infantry/Motor Strelkovy for the same purpose, which I'm aiming to get done by mid-next month.

Following that I have a choice of :
17 Honey Stuarts (4 Platoons of 3, a HQ platoon of 4 and an OP Stuart)
4 SU-122
1:76 Scale Airfix Cromwell tank
Necromunda figures (I seem to have got carried away on eBay recently)

Not sure which way I'm going yet.

On a roll!

Well I seem to be getting back into the swing of painting, I've finished 7 more Sd Kfz 250 halftracks for my Germans! Next is going to be Soviet tanks, then probably my new desert Stuarts. I can't promise the odd Necromunda figure won't creep in however!

For Mandalore!

So I recently picked up the Chimera expansion for Star Wars Armada. This came with 2 unpainted Mandalorian Gauntlet Fighter/dropships. Naturally this means they required a paint job!

They were quick and easy to paint, following a paint scheme off the internet ( Prime black, they drybrush Vallejo Cold Grey (old GW Codex Grey) followed by a lighter white drybrush, and repainting the rotating ring Cold Grey again. I picked out the windscreen in Black, and the engines in Vallejo Orange Fire (old GW Fiery Orange).

I then added the blue marking from the picture in old GW Enchanted Blue, then gave things a quick pin wash with Army Painter Dark Tone, marking sure I got all the rotation ring. With that finishing touch, they were done and ready for space combat!

Jagdpanzers gonna Jagd!

Here are some more German vehicles I've got finished.

Firstly this is my company command 250/1 recce halftrack, together with 2 250/2 Mortar halftracks.  

The softskin collection increases with these Sd Kfz 7 halftracks and SdKfz 15 field car.

Also a Famo 18(t) recovery halftrack (thanks for taking these out just as I'd built it V4!)

Finally something more shooty, 4 Jagdpanzer IV/70 (A). I'm very pleased with how the mesh schutzen (ablative side panels) have come out on these.

Finally finished!

So the Grants have now got their transfers and are finally finished!

Honey Stuart OP, this has been painted to match my other Honey Stuarts. These are going to be replaced with new plastic PSC Stuarts, so I didn't pin wash it to the same standard as the Grants.

 Here we have two platoons of Grants. These are the new Battlefront plastics and these will replace my old Skytrex Grants.

A Day at the Office

Here some more stuff I've been able to get done, two office building/shops for Team Yankee.
