First completed platoon for the year is a group of M10s. I've had M18 for a few years and have been wanting to get these painted to use in mid-war. I finished them just in time for Siege of Augusta this weekend.

This was my first attempt at color modulation using an airbrush.

Two patrols of Captured Panhard 178s. I did two different decal patterns so that I can tell the two patrols apart. Modulation came out a little better this time compared to the M10s. I only used two colors, but the two I used were much higher contrast. Shading/streaks were added with AK interactive's DAK wash (a little sloppy in places). Dust was AK's Africa dust effects; I found it much easier to use than pigments. This is also the first batch of models I've used the airbrush, rather than a spray can, to apply gloss and matte varnishes.

Finished up some AA and Pumas with both turret options. I waited much too long to let the wash set (several days). Also the dull coat caused a "frosty" effect over the pigments on the tracks. And I forgot the antennas on the Pumas. At least they're done.

Army tray. Seems a shame to spend all that time painting an army only to bring them to a tournament on a cookie sheet.

Hi Tommy

Love the work so far this year. I have been thinking about doing an army tray too, is your tray made from a picture frame?

Thanks Ben

Yep it's a picture frame. I have another on the work bench to finish in the next few weeks. I'm planning on taking pictures as I go this time and writing up a tutorial.

It's been a slow month so far in painting. Here are some trucks. I don't really like how the headlights turned out. They would look good IF headlights looked like orbs of polished onyx.

I'm trying to make mayself finish off a few random things before I get cracking on the 21. Panzer div project.

It's been a busy summer. Had a great vacation in Alaska and played a lot of video games, but didn't get much painting done. I was hoping to have a new 21 panzer div company done in time for a tournament in November, but I don't think that's going to happen...

Here's what I have so far...

The fall painting season is kicking off with a mad scramble to finish my 21. panzer Beute StuG list.

This week I put the finishing touches one some assault guns.

Second platoon of StuG 39H. I did these in a different camo pattern to make it easy to tell the difference between the two platoons. I may add foilage to these later; if I have the time.

The rare 39H OP! Big shout-out to Fingolfen for helping me out on this one!

Lots of progress this week. Here's the finished king tiger. I tried a new camo scheme on this one.

Image


Also made progress on 3 other platoons that are each almost done.

Thanks WuhSawbe!

Finished the last few pieces this morning for this panzerwerfer battery. I decided to model the extra crew as separate infantry bases, similar to an 88.

Finally finished that radio truck. One more platoon down!

I used little pieces of painters tap to airbrush the zig-zag stripes on these guys.

I also finished an objective.

Finished the half-tracks. The last platoon is done! All that's left is to let the water effects on the other objective dry and this project is over.

The second objective for my 21. panzer army. I'm not very happy with how the water effects turned out. There are a few bubbles and the surface tension caused it to cling to the sides of the miniature. This is th extra Beute Stug I had. It's tracks were used to make th command OP 39H you saw a few posts back.

Get me outta here!
