I painted about 2/3's of what I painted last year and attended 1 more tournament.
I looked back at my first post of 2013 and didn't see any real Hobby "resolutions", so I'll just say I did them all. Sorted.
There. That was swift, wasn't it? :)
What have I been doing now? Well, I finally sat and finished up weathering the British desert platoons I'd previously show-cased with their nifty decals slapped on. I'm REALLY happy with how these turned out and feel they are my best work yet at this scale. I'd really appreciate any and all criticisms on how they look too. (Pics are not the best as my phone camera just wouldn't play ball when these were taken...)
|The platoon on Reconnaissance in North Africa.|
|Platoon Commander, Lieutenant Reginald Temple-Barnes went on after the war to become a successful agent in Her Majesty's Secret Service.|
|Some closeups of the painted "76" unit marking and weathering.|
|On this side, the squadron marking looks boss.|
|Whereas, on this side it looks as though it was painted on by the natives...|
|Marmon Herrington #1. I wanted my Armoured Cars heavily weathered to look like they'd been out int he field for extended periods of time.|
|Freehand Squadron and unit markings no so bad on this one.|
|Marmon Herrington #2. A stowage box on it's right fender to differentiate.|
|I also added antennas to all three Armoured Cars.|
|The Squadron looking on the Atlas Mountains in Tunisia after chasing Rommel out of Libya.|
I also did some work on the Batloid mode for my Robotech character's Veritech. Arms to come!
And then put together, added gravel and primed in brown these lovely 4Ground 15mm fences that will be smashing additions to both my WW2 and future ACW tables.
|Here they are with glue drying, prior to gravel and primer. Good value for money too.|
