Long Range Desert Group/SAS - Into the desert....

Hi all,

here are some pictures of a commission I finished recently.
28mm Artizan figures and a Company B jeep & crew. I was quite pleased with how the weathering turned out on the jeep.

Recent Work - 'Nam, Modern Russians & FJs

I've been doing some recent commission work for Mathew at Wartime Miniatures, and thought I would share some pictures.
The photos of the finished figures aren't as fancy as I would normally take, just some pics from the work table.
Some of the figures were a new experience for me, I'm not used to painting anything past WW2, and on this occasion there were figures for Vietnam War, Modern day Russians, as well as Ardennes Fallschirmjagers.

Australians for Vietnam War:






Peoples Army of Vietnam:








Modern Russians:





Ardennes Fallschirmjagers:





All figures are 20mm metal from Wartime Miniatures ranges.

Zvezda 88, tow, & some Miniatures For Sale

First up, the German 88mm from Zvezda. A very useful kit, recommended:

I was quite pleased with how the weathering turned out - not too heavy, not too light.


It may not be particularly noticeable, but the crew have had some acrylic modelling
paste added to trousers to help disguise the jackboots and give the impression of gaiters.
I thought this was more in keeping with the late war 1944 theme of my collection.


It is mounted on the base that is part of the kit, but options are provided for it to be based
separately.
Next up some towing equipment for the 88. These were gifted to me by my friend Nick Grant from New Zealand, and he had received them in turn from another bloke. They were originally based and painted up to be used for a winter campaign, I have repainted them and re-done the bases. I'm not sure what make they are - Airfix? Hasegawa? I'm sure someone will know. There was an 88 that came with them which I have also repainted.


Nice and dusty from scooting along the Normandy lanes.

Finally I have some stuff to sell. I am planning to gradually re-jig (the technical term), my British forces and will over time be selling off some stuff - yes it will be replaced, just with different stuff.
For sale at this stage of proceedings will be 20 figures, fully painted and based, from a variety of manufacturers, for only $90 Australian plus postage & packing at cost, payable by Paypal. This works out at only $4.50 per figure, and does not include the cost of the figures themselves - I charge $4.50 per figure for commission painting.
Here they are then, figures from TQD, Wartime Miniatures, Kelly's Heroes, Britannia, & Plastic Soldier Company:
