Bits and Pieces

Someone was asking the other day about beating painting block. My advice was to just try to do something every day, no matter how trivial. I've been trying to stick to that myself.

So far the fruits of my labours have been...

A Panzerjager I awaiting decals and weathering, 3 of the 12 'Pin' markers for Chain of Command (all 12 are done), a converted crewman for the PzJ I, plus 2 of the 4 entrenchments I have made.

And today, I started painting the PIAT teams I have for British Airborne. These guys are 'HUGE'. Not sure of manufacturer but I got a load foo them for next to nix at a Bring & Buy. If they won't fit with the Artizan ones I bought, then they might end up back on a Bring & Buy.

I am using the painting guide from Benito's Blog, 'Wargaming with Too Fat Lardies' with adjustments. He recommends Vallejo Hull Red and Russian Green,neither of which I have, so this is using Vallejo Saddle Brown and Luftwaffe Cam. Green. By the time they are washed and highlighted, they will look quite different.

  1. Agree that that's the best way to beat the painting blog. Just get started on something and before you know it you're away again.
