1/35th Germans Part 5 - Final Pictures.

Hi,
     finished my 1/35th Germans tonight.  Painting them for Christmas presents for my father in law and my wifes uncle.

Its good to paint some figures from display rather than for wargames all the time.  You can spend a bit more time on the details since you are only painting a couple of figures and not a platoon or company.  Also the bigger figures gave me more room to work.

Both figures are 1/35th wich I think is about 54mm scale.

SS officer is from Pegaso Models and the Infantry man is by Hornet.

So on to the pics

Hi,
       Got the base coats and ink washes done on both figures tonight.

1/35 Germans part 1

Hi,
     Next up on the painting table. Two 1/35 Germans. Both figures are presents for my wifes uncle. Interesting to paint in a new scale so  can't wait to see how they turn out.

Also this is the first post on my blog from my mobile. Will try and do more WIP shots this way. Let me know how it looks.

Thanks

Russian Coalition fleet for Dystopian Wars

Hi,
     another trip to the world of Dystopian Wars.   This time its the turn of the Russian Coalition.

Wanted to see if a plain camo scheme would work so I went for light grey.  Trying to make the fleet look like it had seen some tine at sea and not factory fresh.  Thought it would be right for the icey north.  Also includes a couple of Icebergs.

So have a look and let me know what you think.
