Sunday Afternoon Inkwashing

Inkwashed, ready to be suitably based. Trouble is I hate basing, so much so that I have a number of bases waiting to be done....

Sunday Morning Painting

It's another lovely day, and I managed to get up early despite a late night (early morning) of playing Grid online! The British Airborne are now ready for ink washing, and the Tiger has had it's tracks done. I used a variant of the track painting technique from the latest Art of War magazine.

Saturday Morning painting

I gave up on trying to do soft edge camo - even with the step by step instructions from The Art of War 2 - it was just not working for me. So it might not be a totally historic look for a Normandy Tiger, but there you go. Actually, I preferred if before adding the brown.

Brummbar Unpacked

Unpacked my Brummbar with the intention of cleaning up the pieces and assembling it ready for painting. But then I looked at the gun and how deformed the end that plugs into the resin tank body and I'm contemplating asking Battlefront for a replacement part. The only problem with this, is I'd have to wait for the part to arrive before I could start on my brummbar.... decisions, decisions.

Investing in my Germans....

I had to go to Starship today, so whilst I was in the area, I figured I may as well heading into Newmarket and see if NZ's best Flames of War stockist had any Brummbars in stock. They did, so on impulse I bought one. I've been using my Marders as Brummbars, so I figured I might as well by one to see what they look like....

Of course, now I've got something else that needs painting, and with me being the worlds slowest painter, it could be a while...

I've Been Painting!

Just when you thought this blog was dead, I decided to pick up a paint brush and tell the world about it!!

Inspired by the latest Art of War, I decided to take another look at my barely started Tiger. Using Art of War's guide to German tank colours and using their no airbrush camo painting guide, I'm going to attempt to paint a 1944 camo scheme on my Tiger, so it can hide from Allied planes in any Normandy action it might see!

Of course I didn't pay that much attention to the actual taking of the photo and consequently the only thing in focus is the junk in the background.

Oh well, better photos in another month when I start work on the actual camo scheme!
