A little while back, I finally managed to finish the Piggies. I made them a flag, finished off the bases and took some pic's.

Cold War M1 tanks

Here are the latest models painted for Team Yankee, six M1 tanks. The client knows that these never saw the Winter Verdant MERDEC camouflage, but he wanted his whole force to be the same. I can understand that. The models are 15mm (1/100th) made by Battlefront.

John Wayne in 28mm

Wargames Illustrated have a range of 28mm figures called "Heroes in Miniature". There are lots really nice figures and this was the first one that they brought out. They call it after the lead character in the movie 'Sands of Iwo Jima' , John M Stryker, who was played by John Wayne. All the figures are limited to a production run of just 500. I completed this recently for a client who also wants me to paint more from the same range, so stay tuned.

S&S Office body for Altaya Zil 131

Shaun of S&S models ( S and S Models ) asked me to paint up the office body he had mastered to go on the chassis of the Altaya Zil131 cargo truck. I think it turned out OK.  Altaya do make a Zil131 with an office body but it is hard to find and is expensive. Shaun's model is a cheap and cheerful alternative, for the wargamer, to that and to the ICM kit. It is due out very soon.

15mm (1/100th) BMPs

These are part of a commission to paint a couple of Team Yankee forces. They are 15mm (1/100th) scale models produced by Battlefront Miniatures. They are nice little kits (approx 7x3 cm) and the detail is well done being just enough to emphasize without being over done.

Reaper Miniatures Dwarfs

For a while I have been thinking of starting a band of Dwarfs to use with rule sets such as Frostgrave, Dragon Rampant and Song of Blade and Hero. Reaper do some lovely figures and I've been buying some, on and off, for a year or so now. This week I decided to treat myself and allow some of them to jump the paint queue.


 
















 

Still not quite mastered the new camera. I think I know why these came out a bit over exposed.

I hope to do another batch in a week or two. First, I need to finish some other things, like the Piggies!
