And here's the view of the Danes with the first colours blocked in...
I'm very pleased with how they are starting to look. Not too bad for a simple black undercoat, airbrushed green, and some highlights applied to the black.
Next step, tracks, green highlights, first base colours, then I am going to do a 'khaki' dust using the airbrush, flock etc, and see what else needs doing.
I am well pleased with how fast these are coming together.
Why is this here..
A Lead Odyssey is about my hobby, collecting, painting and playing with toy soldiers. It will cover the various rulesets I use, the figures I am painting (very slowly), and some games. Thanks to Harry Pearson for the Achtung Schweinehund reference. The uniform jacket in the picture was adapted from a safari suit, the weapon is a wooden sub-machine gun made by me and my dad. Cool eh?
I play a range of scales, rules and periods.. scales are anything from 6mm, through 15mm to 28mm for little men, but I also use 1/1200 for Napoleonic Naval, and 1/3000 for Pre-Dreadnought period Naval.
My tastes are eclectic, but I have avoided most 'Fantasy' Games for a few years, as I couldn't get into the usual suspects for Fantasy Battles, and didn't have a decent group to play role-playing style games.
