I managed to finish off 2 x 15mm FOW Hummels and I did my very first (probably of many) X-wing miniatures repaint the mighty flying tank of the Empire the VT-49 Decimator. (not sure how you will point this one Curt??). [He won't but Millsy will! :-)]
With the Hummels I added some wear and tear as I often do and plan on them having some form of leafy coverage at some point. So 2 vehicles and 6 crew painted.
The repainting of the VT-49 Decimator came about simply from the fact that the basic model straight out of the box is grey with a really average ink over the top. Most of the x-wing models I have are far better painted (even the tie fighters). I wanted to make the model look like it had seen some action and also give it a big of colour and interest so after a spray of Black paint I proceeded to use half a dozen different grey paints for the panels and along with a nice red stripe and a big of a blue engine effect, a few washes to blend it all together you get this:
Painting the Decimator was a lot of fun and i think its a good improvement over the one that comes out of the box.. The x-wing models are great and take paint perfectly.
Sorry its not much for this week - hopefully a lot more next week.
Wow, two very, very attractive submissions in one post Mark! I'm struggling to decide which I like more... The camo on the Hummels is spot on and well worth the 24 points for vehicles and crew. That X-Wing repaint is just lovely though and given the effort I'm going to call it a 20mm vehicle. Apparently X-Wing is 1/270 so [ahem] close enough. Another 12 points in that case for a total of 36. Awesome work sir. Cheers, Millsy.
