WIP: Orruk Gore-Gruntas

WIP: Orruk Gore-Gruntas


Today I have gone back to a bit of AoS.

Assembled my first Gore-Gruntas, this is going to be for the Golden Daemon competition at the AoS open day on the 13th of August so best get my skates on.

A little bit of the old liquid green was needed to fill the gaps around the face and rear of the Orruk.

Any one else painting or collecting Ironjawz?

Gallery: Soviet Supply Trucks

Gallery: Soviet Supply Trucks


Just a quick dirty paint job on these two trucks, they are from the WWII range from Battlefront Miniatures. Not technically historically accurate but I kinda think they work as pretty sure the Soviets would keep kit around that still worked.

You will see in the background that the Infantry are almost done, I am not happy with bases and still waiting for some tufts to arrive.

Definitely finished this week and then to start on my next unit of Infantry and BMP's

Gallery: Soviets Hail and Observation Platoon





Today got some more work completed on my Soviets. Group shot of the Hails and Observation Platoon. I like a dirty muddy look so heavy stippling with Battlefield Brown and the weathering with Dry Dust.

WIP: Team Yankee Soviet Infantry часть вторая

WIP: Team Yankee Soviet Infantry часть вторая (part two)





Today's update on the Infantry, I got the webbing highlighted and they have started to make the uniforms pop a little more. The helmets are done along with the faces. Tomorrow will finish the guns and hopefully get the sand on the bases.

I got a little distracted at the weekend with Battlefront's regular posting of the Leopard launch day. See linked below.

Leopard Launch Day

I am about half way through my thoughts on Leopard so might be a double post later this week.

Comments and feedback always welcome

Team Yankee: Soviet Cards

Team Yankee: Soviet Cards







Did not get a chance to do any painting this lunch time far to busy with work to get the paints out. So today I have posted the 2 cards for the units that I am painting.
Now unit cards are not a new thing in wargaming but this is the first time that Battlefront Miniatures have used them with their rules set. Having played Flames for a fair few years you get to know your army and your special rules. Even then I still forget to role my Tiger dice every now and then.
In my first few games the cards have been a great use. On the front you have all the unit stats and weapons charts and then on the rear you have all the special rules. So no constant rulebook referencing.

I am close to having my list written up so that may well be tomorrow post.

WIP: Team Yankee Soviet Infantry

WIP: Team Yankee Soviet Infantry



Today's progress was adding more highlights to the uniform and then starting work on the webbing and pouches. I have used the Soviet Green spray as the base coat and then paints from the Soviet Paint Set. I have not painted 15mm figures in a while so it is getting used to where the focus points are the for the models. In terms of a gaming perspective then you are really only going to see them from the helmet down. So I think I am going to have to do some extra work on the bases.

In the background you will see one of the Hail's I have been working on blending in the highlights and tomorrow it will be the road wheels and the launchers. I am hoping to have the infantry ready for basing tomorrow so that I can get them finished next week, ready for the next set of 4 bases and HQ.

Let me know if you have any tips for painting 15mm figures.

WIP: Team Yankee- Soviets

WIP: Team Yankee- Soviets

Bit of a change for todays post.

I have taken a break from my Word Bearers and started what has been a project long on the back burner.

Last year Battlefront Miniatures released Team Yankee, this was their first entry into the Cold War. First came the Americans and Soviet forces and just released this month sees the Germans.

I have started on a small 25 point list which I will post and describe in more detail later this week. This are being painted during my lunch breaks and on the box so far I have 1 unit of Infantry with the attached 4 BMP 2's. There are 2 additional BMP's for an Observer unit and 3 Hail's.

Will post Gallery pics once finished hopefully this weekend.
