Hmm the first one looks more like the picture of the krauts tank, it only needs a few more holes. Smile

Thanks Gatlag, I may add some more holes with a second small stencil.

I painted four wirbelwinds for a commission. Here they are:

Thanks Gatlag. I'll post a picture of the next model I paint next to a 40k model to show the scale.

Thanks rhuntar.

A friend asked me to paint a few of his models.

Jagdpanther 302







How it will hopefully look in games...

After long delays I have (mostly, I still want to add a few more highlights to the tank commanders) finished painting my turretless stuarts for my 11th. Armoured Division armoured company. I decided to post these in their own thread as there does not seem to be too many of these around.




I used Battlefront M5A1 and Stuart V models (using the Stuart V as the command Stuart). The tank commanders are from Open Fire.


The commanders and .50cal machine guns are magnetized so that a turret can be added for Normandy 11th. AD lists.







A few pictures showing them before paint:




Thanks to Battlefront who promptly replaced a missing barrel for one of the Stuarts! Thanks to the people who shared pictures of their turretless conversions. Comments and constructive criticism appreciated.

Thanks rhuntar and gatlag.

I painted a Me262 for a friend:










I painted the camo pattern on the top by masking and using an airbrush.

I'll have a few more step by step photos on how I painted it up on my blog tomorrow.

The plane looks great!
What kind of masking tape are you using? From Tamiya perhaps?

The yellow is tamiya masking tape. The blue is painters masking tape from the hardware store.

I've always wanted to try out that tape, does it also work for regular painting? Or is it best with airbrush?

I tried to use the blue tape with a brush one time to try to paint german camo without using an airbrush. It didn't work as well as I had hoped. The higher quantity of paint seemed to leak under the tape a little bit. If you painted carefully still I imagine it could help to achieve a straight line. Unfortunately I don't have the tape with me right now to try it for you.

Here is a plastic soldier company panther I painted. I tried to paint it in disc camouflage pattern. I know that this pattern is not popular with everyone. It is pretty difficult to replicate in 15mm scale. Your comments and thoughts on the overall appearance are appreciated.












In black and white.

I painted it by punching a 1/8" template out of masking tape. I then added additional smaller dots by spraying through a circle template.


Comments and thoughts appreciated. Thanks!

Hmm I was afraid for that as I had it in large "scale" when I was trying to paint a a big colored square on my wall at home.

I like the pattern! I think it's "spot on"! Wink

I've been working on painting some infantry models. I tried a few different techniques on these. It is more fun than I had expected to paint 15mm infantry. It is slow though. I don't feel like it is much faster than painting 28mm infantry to a comparable standard of highlights.









I'd appreciated some comments on if you think the top 4 or bottom 4 look better?

Here is a picture of some side by side. The left is the top the right two are from the bottom set.


Thanks!

Wow! Those look really great for such small figures! I like the bottom 4 best!

Btw I came across this article: http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2013/04/fow-hobby-3-nations-3-easy-tank-paint.html
Might contain some useful tips for you. Smile

I based up the first team.




For my basing I wanted to somewhat recreate the fields the 101st airborne would have cross during Operation Market Garden (grassy fields with some additional foliage, damage, etc. for interest).

Looking great! Really nice detail on the soldiers. Those little white flowers pop really nicely!

I painted most (7 stands) of my US paratroopers. Still 2 stands to paint and whatever else I decide that I need to paint for them... Maybe another platoon and HQ?

Great details for such small models. If I didn't have a load of kickstarter stuff heading my way I would consider this.

Any more 40k related stuff on its way?

Laney-Flames of War is a really fun game. I am finding the models a lot more fun to paint than I expected. If anyone plays locally around you you should see if you can do a demo game and check it out. I've had great fun with it. Maybe some 40k stuff coming. If a skirmish game comes out that will maybe renew my GW interest. I have lots of models to finish painting.

I've finished painting two Bedford QLT 3-ton Lorries. Eventually they will transport a rifle platoon (they are sadly unpainted still). I got excited about how to paint Mickey Mouse camouflage and had to paint them before the rifles.


Unfortunately I don't have the numbers for the right side yet (serial numbers?). They will get 63s on green backgrounds when they arrive.




I added a base to help to protect the model during gameplay.


I spent a fair bit of time on the crew. They are a bit hard to see on the final models (as they are inside the cab). Once crew member wouldn't fit as it was too tall. I'm going to try and pop it into a Universal Carrier instead.

I painted two stands of my heavy mortar platoon. A few more stands to go. These were a bit of an experiment in trying to find a way of painting English Uniform that I was happy with.
