New Fatigue Marker for Saga

I recently finished a new fatigue marker for Saga using the Time for beer miniature from the Freya’s Wrath Kickstarter from Bad Squiddo Games. Its a fabulous figure & highly recommended.

US Sherman Tank


I found stashed in a box, a long discarded project a few weeks ago.
This resin Sherman had been bascoated, highlighted & shaded,
with the transfers applied & some washes applied.
As I never completed a US Army (I didn't like painting them & sold it a long time ago!)
I'm surprised that I ever started it!
 


Anyway I thought that I would give it some love & finish it off.
Might just have to go off to eBay though as I wont be painting any US troops.

Wierd War 2 Zombies

 
Varnished some Zombies today from East Riding Miniatures, sculpted by the late Jim Bowen
& took a rather poor picture (sorry)
 
 
So I thought that I would share it.

A couple of Rus

Finished a couple of Drabant Miniatures Rus figures to add to my Viking Warband.
I’ve swapped out the weapons on both figures. 
The Drabant figures are really nice miniatures available from Old Glory UK 
& definatley worth checking out. 
They have Saxons, Normans, Russians, Picts & Vikings in the range. 
Hopefully they will expand some of the ranges.

Bolt Action/K47 Artillery Observer


Been working on a Artillery observer for my Bolt Action/K47 army.
 
 
I decided to base him hiding behind a wall made from 2mm plastic strips,
using the same techniques that I have used before
 


 
The wall was painted using a base coat of Vallejo Hull Red,
 highlighted with various red browns & orange browns.
Followed by a wash of beige & re-highlighted
 




Some bricks have also been washed with Army painter strong tone to add variation to the bricks

6pdr Anti Tank Gun


I've been painting up a 6pdr AT Gun for my Konfikt 47 force.
I found this in the lead pile (I had completely forgotten that I had it!!)
I think it could be from Battle Honors Miniatures but I'm not sure, 
as I bought it second hand & the Battle Honors website doesn't have very many pictures!

TURNS OUT IT'S FROM BLACK TREE DESIGN, IT DIDN'T EVEN CROSS MY MIND AS I DID NOT THINK THAT THEY MADE ONE (WHO KNEW!)
 

I have used the same method as previous posts for making & painting the wrinkly tin (using fizzy drink cans & a homemade press)
 
 
 
 
 
Hope you all like it
Cheers
Keith

K47 Rift Grenadiers

Started making some Rift Grenadiers for Konflikt 47
LI have used Warlord Plastic Brits, Westwind Productions SotR British gas mask heads & Warlord/Wargames Factory Survivors Sa80’s. 
I have cut the helmets from the Westwind heads so that the helmets with scrim netting can be glued onto them. 
The Sa80’s have been trimmed down to represent EM2 assault rifles. 
Left to right are the SA80-A2, XL 60 and EM-2
I have used the commando rucksacks & added an extra ammo pouch to represent the case for the Tabby night scope.

K47 Reinforcements

 

Finished up some reinforcements for K47, Basic troops will do for Bolt Action as well.
 
I'm still not spending a lot of time on stuff as I'm wanting to get 1250pts painted pretty quickly.
 
As well as the troops above, I have some more Automatons
 

 
An Automated Carrier, I love this model,
I think it must be my favourite in the K47 range.
It still needs matt varnishing though
 


I've also taken a picture of a figure that I painted a while ago that I don't think I've shown before
 
 
Cheers keith

REME pin marker finished

 
 
 
Well I've managed to get the newest pin marker finished for K47/Bolt action.
 
He has been painted wearing denims,
an overall type of battle dress that tended to be a greener shade than regular battle dress.
