Vikings with Dane axe

Here's a couple of Dane Axe armed figures that i did a while ago & forgot to post.
They are both from Wargames Foundry & have had weapon swaps.

Sorry for the mis-post, I seem  to be having trouble with the Blog Pad Pro App deleting everything rather than posting it.

Sherman Troop

Ive finally finished my Troop of shermans for WW2 gaming, Bolt Action, Konflikt 47 & hopefully What a Tanker. 
They are all plastic kits from Warlord games, a Sherman M4, a Sheman V & a Sherman V “Firefly”. 
There are a few descrepancies between the older M4 kit and the newer V kits, 
but not too noticable (unless you look really hard) & adding the Commander from the V kits helps. 

Ive cocked up the  Squadron markings though 🙄
As they are supposed to be Guards Armoured & 
they put them on the hull rather than the turret ☹️
But im not changing them now 😁
Well this is my third attempt to post this, so fingers crossed it will post. 
Hope whoever is still reading my blog likes these

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!


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

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.
