AHPC7 - Challenge Day 3

Today I have been suffering from the after effects of yesterday's team Xmas lunch - very tired, no energy and somewhat achey. Which means that I didn't manage to get as much done as I'd hoped. However, I still managed to get the camo basecoats and highlights airbrushed onto the 15mm grav tanks and APCs that wil be my entry for the "armour" bonus theme round. Oh, and I've dry-brushed the bases that they will be going on.

I do still need to do some touch-ups where paint either lifted along with the stencils or where it got chipped/scratched. And some detailing before airbrushing a coat of Klear on followed by a shading wash, a second coat of Klear and then a coat of matt varnish. I also need to flock the bases.

All that will have to wait until next week though as I'm heading down to Sussex tomorrow for Christmas.

So, here's wishing you all a merry Christmas and may Santa bring you all the shinies you've asked for :)


  1. Happy Christmas to you and an Oogie Boogie 2017.

  2. The grav tanks are looking good. Have a lovely Christmas.

  3. Have a great time with your folks Tamsin,

    Hope you get some of those shinnies you mentioned


  4. Merry Xmas Tamsin, recharge those batteries for the challenge!

  5. Happy Christmas Tamsin, and many thanks for your company during the build-up to the AHPC. Very much looking forward to seeing what you come up with over the next three months!!

    @ Whisk - wishing you an oogie boogie New Year m'dear! :)

    @ Ian - no shinies for me sadly as we don't do presents these days [unless you count the exchange of bottles of single malt that my dad and I exchange] :(

    @ Simon - been a pleasure chatting while you guys paint :)
