    I’m not sure all those separate parts would be viable in 10mm to be honest.

    Would not appeal to me. Cant imagine sticking on 10mm smoke dischargers would be fun at all.

    The Chieftain has two options, Stillbrew and not.

    Bit more done… ambulance has seen better days but I wanted a real worn out look as it’s to be one on the long retreat…

    Esci M3 with resin upgrade, in Protective K based on one seen in Belgrade that looked to have been repainted in Soviet paint over the usual Lendlease Olive Drab.

    Not entirely happy at the moment with it, but more to do. Needs to look worn out and knackered after a long retreat and use.

    Actually PSC have the following ranges;

    Xyston

    Corvus Belli 

    Lurkio

    All to be ‘cast’ in plastic. All those in the pics above are from the Lurkio range.

    Yes that’s the set mate.

    I mainly use the Dark Brown on camo, and the green on Field Grey.

    So far this week, well on course for the yearly target of one figure painted per day!

    Hey ya, that’s not bad at all! Question: wheb is the Splintermuster Light Shade used? Highlighting after painting the base color and before other spots etc, or after all is painted? And, is the shader an ink for washing or is it a paint?

     

    I apply the camo base colours then the highlights.

    I then use the uniform filter, its neither a wash or a paint… it’s a very low pigment ‘stain’ with hardly any surface tension so it merely blends and discolours slightly the colours below. Brings it altogether.

    Piers, What color do you use for your base color on those British helmets?

    I use the AK Interactive Olive Drab from their US Infantry colour set.

    I give it a dry brush on the OD with some Ivory added an then the dark brown AK Uniform Filter over it all to blend it altogether.

    Starting on my platoon of Durham Light Infantry next, a project inspired by my trip to Normandy earlier in the year.

    So far just the base coat and wash on the uniforms. Along with these, the next batch of British vehicles are built ready for painting…

    That looks nice. How do you go about moving through that dense wooded area though?

    I pick up figures… and move them through it. 😉

    Still room to move infantry in there, just not vehicles!

    Absolutely gorgeous! Can you clarify what period these are for? I am not as good on FJ uniforms as I should be. Crete? North Africa? Italy?

    North Africa/Tunisia, into Sicily and Italy. They are in shirt sleeves and trousers.

    I’m putting on a Sicily based demo game at Salute next year and needed some FJ for it… Tony as always helped out by making these literally appear out of thin air! Great adversaries for the Tropical British he is doing at the moment.

    I love prone figures. I personally think they are no used enough. Great looking work!

    Holy smokes, 6 flesh tones! That’s a ton on a 20mm fig. The results are great but oh my that’s a lot of chances to goof up!

    That’s what the wash is for… to cover up all my mistakes!

    Piers, Simply WOW! That brush work is amazing. How long do you take on each one? What technique do you use for the flesh tones? It looks so realistic. Thanks Ian

    A single figure is around two hours work. It’s a little quicker if you do them in groups, but I’m enjoying doing them in singles lately.

    Flesh tones are doing using the AK flesh set of paints and just applied as six gradual tones with a wash of GW Riekland Flesh on the mouth and eye sockets at the end.
