Yes, some metal 1:200 cars and vans for the 1X Car Wars project. Whilst they are more expensive than the plastic ones, they make up for that with much better detail.
This evening when I got home, there were a couple of packages waiting for me. The first was an Ebay purchase I'd made - two long-nose trucks for £7 (including delivery):
The other package was from GZG - my order of 15mm and 6mm turrets:
|6mm large and medium turrets|
|6mm small turrets - 1:200 pickup to show size|
|Hotwheels car added to show size of turrets|
The small 6mm turrets will work well for the 1:200 cars and as droppers/dispensers on the 3X vehicles. Now that I know what's in the packs, I think I'll be placing an order for some more
Yesterday I received an order of MDF bases from Warbases for basing vehicles and for various counters (mines, spikes, oil, smoke etc). I took those into work today to spray with grey texture paint. I got most of them done, but still have a few to do tomorrow.
Last night I did a little test for making oil slicks using gloss gel with some black ink mixed in and small amounts of water to help spread it.
I probably don't need as much black ink as I used here but do need some water, I think if I get the right mix and time things right, I should be able to raise some "peaks" to paint up as flames for flaming oil jet markers.
This evening I've been dying some cotton wool balls in diluted pink ink for paint spray markers. The balls are drying out now. I'll post pics tomorrow once they are finished.
