Some photos from today’s six player, 1250pt Tank Wars event 👍
Based and assembled a Soviet T26 for this weekend’s Bolt Action Tank War event. Competitive? Doubtful. Cool looking? Heck ya.
Tomorrow comes paint!
Too rainy outside to prime buildings, so here are some work-in-progress pictures of scatter terrain rubble piles for placing up against the sidewalls of buildings. For today, a wrecked Kübelwagen (Tamiya, 1/48) – more pieces to come. Just needs some bullet holes drilled in and primer, then it’s on to painting.
Some more progress on my Stalingrad Soviet Army for Bolt Action. Just needs a head glued on, a few more highlights, and some matte varnish.
Motivated by a club event this past weekend, I spent the night re-basing and touching up my Bolt Action Soviet army. Went with a winter urban theme to suit my ongoing Stalingrad terrain project. Better photos to come in the near future.
Base coats down and up next are washes, weathering, highlights, and basing.
All-in-all, took about an hour (aside from dry times) to complete.
- Stynylrez Black Primer
- VMC bronze airbrushed on leaving the recesses dark
- Citadel Nuln Oil Gloss all over, followed by Matte Varnish
- Drybrush of VMC Bronze and VMA Aluminum mixed
- Citadel Nihilahk Oxide applied selectively in recessed and watered down on the model
- VMA Dead White airbrushed from above
- Citadel Valhallan Blizzard applied lightly.
- The plinth was various greys airbrushed on with the above bronze effect applied to decorative bits.
- The basing follows my previous tutorial.
A metal Lenin statue from eBay painted up for use as a terrain piece and/or objective marker. Forgot I had this lingering work in progress sitting on the shelf of shame and decided to give it a quick paint job.
My third attempt at painting Soviet statues (see first here, see second here) and I really tried to emphasize a winter aesthetic with this one. Still looking for a way to effectively show frost … considering using Titanium White pigment powder by Vallejo in the future.
Sadly, my iPhone apparently hates focusing on the state itself …
