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.

2 months on...

So, it's been a bit dead around here recently. A DIY project, work and a holiday have all competed with modelling time. Also the adverse weather we've had in the UK has hindered my ability to spray varnish models which has made it hard to finish stuff.

Nevertheless, I've got a few bits done as you can see below.

First is the Necromunda Bounty Hunter.

 I've completed these gardens for my terrain collection

I've also completed the pylons for Team Yankee.

More models will be on the way shortly!

Really, really need to try harder!

So as you might have guessed I didn't make my Christmas painting schedule! A busy few weeks of work and a variety of little jobs sucked up the time instead, plus poor weather limited my spraying.

I've finally got the halftracks finished, plus the objectives and the billboard (plus a tree base that isn't) shown.

February's aim is to build the pylons and finish the desert tanks (Grants and Stuarts). I'm halfway through the tanks so it shouldn't be too hard (there's my excuse gone)!

If I miraculously complete early, well there's plenty extra to paint!
