    I’ve done an update to this on the Slammers website simply because I’ve finished three detachments of AFVs and infantry (despite a disaster with the Army Painter Dip being way too thick…).

    Anyway, I’m now done with these and will move on to targets new!

    There’s also some more shots on a gallery page at http://www.hammers-slammers.com/zap_1.htm

    I might have to fiddle with both of them (I notice some of the “next page” arrows are facing in the wrong direction!)

    Anyway, it’s all based on the very nice range from Brigade.

    Thanks Old Ben.

    I had a real problem with painting these – as I said the dip went all thick and nasty on me. I thinned it for the figures (Iwith some sucess) but not before I’d had a real issue with the AFVs and it covering up most of my airbrushed camo.

    As for the terrain, it’s palm trees, fish tank plants, a DeepCut mat and some DIY lakes: there’s an article on building the lake parts of that shot coming out i the next iissue of Miniature Wargames.

    Somehow I had missed this.  The one time I used the AP dip I had the same problem, it seemed to be very very concentrated.  What did you use to thin it?  Just water?

    No, I used mineral spirits (Humbrol hobby turps) as it’s the varnish stuff. Worked on the troops a treat (and had previously worked on the vehicles) but I did need to both pay attention and thin it properly…
