Very cool additions and really nicely photographed (shows them off really well).

Thanks for the kind comments. Laney, for some reason the pictures came out very nicely for the lorries. I will have to play around with things to try and get all of my pictures as bright.

I've painted another two stands of my heavy mortar platoon. It is pretty slow going. The bases are done too, I am just waiting for the glue to dry.


Command team.


I painted the webbing with slightly different colours this time.


I painted the skin in a new way (the same as the truck drivers). Same model side by side. Which method do you prefer? The webbing and camouflage on the helmet are also a little different.

I've finished painting the first four stands of my British 11th Armoured Division Heavy Mortar Platoon.



Platoon so far.



Heavy mortars. 2 more stands to go.



Bases. I based them for a grassy field during Operation Market Garden.










Observer team



I started using a slightly different formula for the skin and webbing on two of the stands that I definitely prefer. 

Thanks to everyone in the "Modelling and Painting" section that helped me to sort out the insignia. Comments and constructive criticism appreciated!

Looking great man! Especially when you realize that these models are so tiny! Smile

Thanks Gatlag. They are pretty tiny!


I recently painted a PSC Panther G using colour modulation. Here are a few pictures of it. 


The finished Panther (still needs dullcote and maybe some weathering touch ups)


After colour modulation using Vallejo Model Air paints.


A picture showing the lighting directions.

I have a tutorial on my blog Rust and the City Colour Modulation that shows step by step how I painted the colour modulation on this model and the colours used.

Wow! Looking really great!
You're becoming quite an expert with the airbrush!

Thanks Gatlag. I feel like I still have a lot to learn with it but it is slowly getting easier.

Here are a few more pictures of the finished model. 





Here is the pattern I was roughly trying to recreate, from Early of Grey's Panther camouflage collection.






Comments and constructive criticism appreciated. Thanks!

Darn! Really awesome!
I'd like to see a paintjob like that on 40K model, makes it much more realistic.

I was thinking the same thing with 40k vehicles. Why on Earth would they paint their vehicles bright red and bright yellow and things. I'd really like to paint a 40k vehicle in a nice desert digital camouflage. Maybe one day someone will have a rhino or something they want me to paint like that. Or in german style camouflage.

Wish I was living a little more near you then! I have plenty of stuff laying around which could be used for a project like that.I still have a 1,5 boxed set of a Leman Russ which I was planning to convert to either a "King Russ" model or a "Stug". I even have a big Forge World turret for it. I'm wanting to have it in a paint scheme like this one:

I've finished painting a PSC Panzer IV platoon. The painting is all done. Now I am adding some foliage and I am a bit undecided on the colour to add. I have three different foliage colours from MiniNatur. 

These Panzer IVs are for a Panzer Lehr force early in the ardennes offensive. My idea being that late war Germans in a fall basing pattern will work well from early autumn to the start of the bulge. I am going to base my infantry and guns as in the picture below of some test bases.



Here they are before any foliage:




Vote for which foliage you think looks the best. It is not glued on in the pictures below.

Green foliage


Orange foliage


Red foliage


Mix of orange and green foliage


Thanks for your input. I'll update this thread with some more pictures once the platoon is all finished and decided.

Thanks Gatlag. I am still undecided. I'll give it a few days then decide.

I've finished painting up a T-34 platoon in winter whitewash camouflage. I also built a small base to take pictures with.















I have some more pictures and how I painted them up on my blog.

Thanks again Gatlag. I think you secretly want to start Flames of War:lol: 

I've finished up the Panzer IV platoon. They are PSC Panzer IV models. I converted them a little to make them Panzer IV Js (sadly without mesh schurzen, maybe on the next models). I decided to do a bit of a mix of the foliage types. 










In the Ardennes.


In Normandy.

When my models are painted like yours I'd love to give it a try! Very Happy
I really lack the time to start another "miniature" hobby, my first one isn't even getting any attention these days due to the move to a new home and also because the disbanding of my gaming group...

Again some great models btw!

I have finally almost finished my shame, the unpainted models from my 1780 point list at the summer tournament. I've finished my command shermans and two paratrooper stands so my tournament army is almost complete. Except now I want to change some things in my list... And repaint a bunch of things.


1iC and 2iC








Two more stands of paras are done. I just need to matte varnish them once the flock dries.

An amazing array of tanks. The spots of damage on the shermans looks very cool and the whitewash soviet tanks also look great.

Laney Very Happy

Thanks Laney. Any chance you are getting into Flames of War sometime in the future? It seems to be pretty big in the UK.

I've finished painting my Universal Carrier platoon for the 11th Armoured Division. I had a lot of help on the FoW forums getting the decals correct (the Arms of Service especially). Thanks to leadgend, lap1964, Nigel Maddaford, and 1stBn for their help.






A little PIAT conversion.





You can see more pictures on my blog: http://rustandthecity.blogspot.ca/2013/12/universal-carriers.html. Comments and constructive criticism are appreciated. Thanks!
