...with added tanks!
What have I been up to since my trip to sELWG on Sunday? Quite a lot, as it happens.
On Monday I got the 15mm tanks finished (apart from decals - I'll be doing those when the other tanks I bought on Sunday are ready). They were done with plenty of time to spare before they'd be seeing action in a game of "What A Tanker!" that evening.
...and converted to T34/85
PzKpfw IV Ausf F2/G
On Monday I took the opportunity for some photos on a battlemat:
I did enjoy the game on Monday night. Great fun and absolute chaos, as we had extra tanks coming on as people arrived. The Russians (including me) had four T34/76s against two StuGs and a PzKpfw IV Ausf G. My T34 scored a kill (the crew bailed out) so I will be going into the next game with a skill card.
Yesterday I decided to start on the next batch of Aussies. I got all the base coats and initial washes done, then managed to do about half of the highlighting. I finished them today and took some pics before giving them a coat of Klear.
Tomorrow I'll be adding basing gunk and when it's cured will paint and dry-brush the bases. If that's not too late, I'll also matt varnish them and add tufts.
The next batch will be Independent Company commandos. I might break them down into two batches as 14 is a few too many to work on at one time.
This evening I will start prepping the metal figures I bought on Sunday (the sprues of all the plastic models have been washed).
As you can tell, lots going on at the moment.
