More British & first attempts with greenstuff

I don't usually take photos of my stuff outside, but today my son and his friend were doing a LOTR game on the tabletop, so it was out to the verandha with my toys. Not sure what I think of these photos, taken in bright spring sunshine.

These commandos are converted plastic Revell British figures who have had their helmets trimmed off and replaced with berets made of greenstuff. This was my first attempt with greenstuff and I'm quite pleased with how they turned out in the end.







The next figures are recent releases from Wartime Miniatures- great figures. I don't think my outdoor photography really does them justice.. oh well.

















I have also finished the Ready to Roll halftrack along with its crew & passengers, but will photograph that later using my regular methods- once the battle for Middle Earth is over :).

Cheers,
Jacksarge.

    1. Yeah, don't get outside as often as I could- plus the weather has not been particularly conducive of late.
