Side tracked!!

Well I seem to have got a bit side tracked from painting the Winter War Finns!
Since the last post & the promise of an update to the painting guide I've not even looked at them!!
Instead I have been painting some other bits & peices for Saga & For the Home Guard.
First of all for Saga I have done a Baggage Marker using some Gripping Beast Pigs & a Black Tree peasant on a base done by James at Oshiro Model Terrain (more of these later)

In fact if I remember correctly I got the pigs of James over on LAF too!
Any way they are painted with Valejo Red Leather, Orange Brown & some of the Rust colours from the Panzer Aces range.
I've also painted a Victorian Warehouse From Oshiro Model Terrain. Which is a fantastic little kit that comes pre-undercoated flat packed with seperate doors & windows, a floor, roof Girders & a sheet of card with the roof tiles pre-cut.
Any way on to the pictures, I've put a foundry Home Guard Figure for scal on the first picture

I've used various manufacturers paints on this, I started with a cream colour to paint the mortar then sponged various shades a Brown/Red Brown over this for the brickwork followed by a wash of a slightly paler cream with i carefully wiped back off with a damp paper towel. The roof is just sponged & drybrushed with various greys then washed in Brown & green.
Finally here's a Dum Dum Dugan to go with the Cap figure.
I painted this a while ago but haven't got round to photographing it till now

I don't know when I will get back to the Finns as I have a Empire of the Dead Commision to paint & I've started a truck for the Home Guard  that I want to Finish
