An assortment of pictures for you today, various works in progress and a smattering of finished items.
In my last post I showed some Eureka 28mm Bears, I have now finished them all and given them a coat of gloss- they now reside on my daughter's bookshelf:
Waaay back my friend Nick from Christchurch sent me some British Colonial Gattling guns with crews, I painted one crew in khaki and another in blue. I am finally getting around to doing something with the last crew which I am painting up in British red. These are 1/72 plastic figures from HaT. Here's what I've done so far:
Now and then I have painted up a Lord of the Rings figure from my son's collection, so, probably inspired by seeing The Hobbit, I painted up a couple more. These are GW figures of Elrond and Grima Wormtongue:
Some terrain related items.
Firstly, a WIP of a Scalescenes terrace of houses (this one will take me a while!):
Secondly, a WIP of some shrubs/small trees made our of plant roots:
Thirdly, some of you may remember a bit of bocage I was messing about with that had incorporated ditches- in this post HERE .
Well, this is how the finished item came out, not sure how robust it will be, but I reckon it looks more realistic than my previous bits of bocage:
Some more WW2 stuff, just in case some of you thought I'd forgotten.
Here are some WIP shots of more British Commandos- figures from Elhiem, Battlefield and PSC- plus some AB crew figures for a Bren Carrier at the back:
I have more WIP WW2 stuff in the wings, like a Ready to Roll Stuart tank, and other unfinished models.
I have finished reading Stuart Hill's "By Tank into Normandy" during the Christmas Holidays-I highly recommend it to you as a great memoir from a tank commander of the Sherwood Rangers, 8th Armoured Brigade- I purchased mine from The Book Depository.
