Bolt Action: Panzer II

This little guy from Warlord was a lovely kit to assemble and paint. There was some slight flash to clean up, and the assembly diagram was for an earlier version of the model, but it's got a minimal number of parts. I got the decals from a 1/48 Pz IV I built and painted (but evidently never finished) some years back. I undercoated in Halford's yellow primer, then applied grey atop that. The resin is grey and I felt sure I'd miss something otherwise! This is probably partly responsible for the tawny hue of the finished model. The fact that my light just seems to have gone a bit yellow is doubtless another factor!

At the club we're working on Bolt Action in a distracted fashion. WWII isn't really my period, but a game is a game. :)

Rich and I have acquired a few different bits and bobs which should see us able to field a few armies. In-game pictures will hopefully follow at some point. We have for the Germans a pair of Panthers, so I wanted to get something a bit more limited, that wouldn't take up half the points cost of a thousand point force all on its own! Plus, I like anything I can slip into my ever-planned, never-realised VBCW plans. ;)

Seeing Red, er, 40K Mechanicus buildings

As previously mentioned, I've been doing quite a few Mechanicus buildings for a mate at the club. Expect more in the future! Oh, some other buildings towards the end will have their own shot soon.

Star Wars: Legion

A few shots here of some models I undercoated for a friend at the club, and of some I bought for myself when the Star Wars itch became too strong! I ought have paid more mind to the sergeant's pose, for he has already been christened Sergeant Shakespeare by my mates.

40K Imperial Skyshield Landing Platform

Another painting job for a friend at the club. This is an oddball of a kit in some ways. If you don't base it, then the legs are a bit too flimsy. If you do base it, you can't access the underside. Maybe basing it but leaving the legs unglued is the option. However, by the time I painted it, it had long been assembled. Rather bored of Mechanicus red and pale blues and flashy gold for the other 40K projects, I went for a classic martial green and cream look. What? Something to the side you say? Oh, yes.
