After what seems like an age (because it probably is), I thought I should stick an update on to prove I have been pottering around with a paint brush; even if it is in a totally disorganised way.
Below are two of my favourite Airfix figures from my favorite set, WW2 German Infantry which have been recently relaunched.
The officer, Walther P38 in the aim...before...
...and after... I started painting these quite casually as is evident by the number of joint lines which remain; quite annoying as the figures turned out a bit better than I originally thought they would...doh!
I used good old Army Painter Strong Tone Dip liberally brushed on before matt varnishing, dry-brushing in grey, basing and finally matt varnishing for a second time.
I used Army Painter Steppe Grass (naturally) and Swamp Tufts to complete the basing.
My overall fave bod - the grenadier, about to execute an Olympic-worthy throw of his 'potato masher' - doubtlessly into a distant and flanked, Bolshevik MG nest...
Blast those accursed joint lines!
Ah, back to the days of classic war films, Warlord, Battle and War Picture Library comics, to name a few!
These figures whisk me back to boyhood and despite their comparative stylised, simplicity by modern moulding standards, remain classic designs.
The MG 34 team next!
All the best,
