British Forces....

Today some pictures of my british forces. As you can see, the bases of most of the minis aren´t finished yet. I   continued the work in the last days and I hope to finish this until next Sunday. These Soldiers were the first I based a long time ago. I recognized, that "green" is not the best choice to paint the bases, so I started to repaint them. And the rest was rweorked and painted, too. I have to highlight and wash the bases and finally they will get some gras.
The bright sunlight has the effect, that the tanks look like new. But in reality the´re looking a lot more "used".

"Mid-War" Germans

As I told in my last post I made a lot of pictures on Saturday. Today I want to show you what I would call "Mid-War" Germans. I like the "Panzergelb" and that´s why I´ve got some kits painted in this colour. But as you can see, the Panzer IV and the Jagdtiger Jagdpanther (OMG I play too much world of tanks...) aren`t finished yet.

Next U.S. Platoon, some "Basework" needed...

Another U.S. Platoon needs his bases. As my Internet connection was lost a few days I went on with these. Meanwhile the bases are finished and just need some washing and drybrushing. The Figures are from Caesar, Revell and Atlantic. 
Ups, just recognized that the medic needs a red cross on the helmet....

New U.S. Platoon (almost finished)

My new U.S. Platoon is nearly finished. I based them but unfortunately I just forgot one...
Seems I´m getting old.
And I have to base the mortar for the mortar crew (on the right side). I´m not satisfied with the bases and will rework them someday. My long pause takes it´s toll  ;-)
Next project will be some german stuff. I´ve got an old Revell DAK Set (Hard Plastic) I would like to paint.

I will make new pictures of these.... I was in a hurry this morning.

My new painting aid....

I prime coated the howitzer I bought last week. First time I used my "new" painting aid. I found an old turntabel and I used some parts for this "rotating" painting aid. Very useful ;-)

And I would like to welcome

As mentioned yesterday I want to finish some older projects. I started yesterday with this ruin. The first two pictures were made befor I continued. Almost finished, I would say. The windows need a rework, the drainpipes have to be painted and finally some debris will be added. The kit is from "Fantasy-Gelände-Modelle.

Samy, you make wonderful buildings!
