We are not going to release any vehicles this Q1/18, but focus solely on figures - pewter and plastic miniatures!
That will give me a chance to catch up on the previous releases...

Wish Lists / LRDG 30cwt Chevrolet truck

An iconic vehicle for the LRDG, with various weapon loads.

Now I wonder if I have a photograph of the IWM example.

Inspired by Captain Blood's  CMP.

They are very nice.

I used Rubicon numbers on my Warlord resin and Zvezda Panzer 38 (t):

Both of the 38(t) based kits are full of character, moreso than the KV-1 and the IS-2.

Over breakfast I used some Citadel Karak Stone on it, and then got a bit too enthusiastic and painted the ends of the blanket. Well at least I did not get porridge on it (or eat the paint).

I will reshade it tonight.

I am nearly out of khaki, base colour for multicam etc.

Okay, version 2.0.

Still a bit dark. I used Citadel Steel Legion Drab, might be better with Vallejo German camouflage beige.

Rats, I misread the colours on the PSC box.

Now I need to remember what colour I used on the webbing. The dry brushing was terrible anyway.

And British.

The T34/76 and the Studebaker.

They were sprayed the same colour (Humbrol Dark Green).

The Bad Squiddo figures are not as small as I thought. I have not compared them to the Perry figures. I suspect they are slightly more "Heroic".

This is the first one I have painted.

I did have a play around with getting the tank crew to fit the T34/76. The "skirt" of the jacket does not fit in the Mickey Mouse 76mm turret without slight modification. I plan to fit one to it when I build the turret (the one from the T34/85 kit).

I wish there had been a full length figure or a set of legs that fitted the half figures for the full width bin lid turret (as discussed earlier).

I have "stored" the tank riders somewhere, they will turn up at some time

My Compass Cutter.

You just need to change the blades regularly and try and keep it vertical.

Will you have this at Salute this year?

We are making arrangement for this.  :)

I have the squad set - 2xSMGs, LMG team, six rifles, the tank riders and the tank crew.

This is the first one painted (the rest of the squad are based and primed).

They do appear small - I have just assembled a Bolt Action Soviet for comparison. I will post a comparison later.

They are reasonable mouldings and sculpts. Plastic mouldings would be better.

Thanks, that is good to know - my Marder crew are base coated Vallejo German Camouflage mid brown with the intention of lots of faded highlights.
