I was really hoping to have a much bigger submission for this Friday, but I have so many projects on the go that it is hard to accomplish anything. Two squads of Japanese soldiers are just about finished but not today so I will have to save them for next week.
I finally received the flags for my new 18mm Napoleonic forces so I can not resist getting some of them done today. I went with GMB which are beautiful flags but take some work to get done...curse Flagdude for his ever increasing disappearing acts.
Anyway back to the submission, these are 2 vehicles from SHQ, trying to find Japanese tanks in 20mm or 1/72 is quite a challenge. I must say I enjoyed paining them. I usually use an airbrush to do camo but these were done free hand and I think they look OK.
|Type 97 Chi-Ha Medium Tank|
|One of the distracting projects can be seen in the background, a bamboo jungle.|
|Type 94 TK Tankette|
|This is the second smallest tank I have in my collection, the only smaller is the MKIV British Tetrarch|
Great submission John. Your freehand work ix excellent, and you've done these lovely SHQ sculpts justice, all without having to bother with that diva of the hobby desk, an air brush. It is interesting to see Japanese tanks - of course, they've always been around, but it is neat to see the Pacific Theatre of WW2 getting more and more gaming attention (at least from my perspective).
"I have so many projects on the go, I can't accomplish anything" - I know what you mean! I like to think of it more as "incremental progress", but I think many of us can relate. I can also relate re: the Flag Dude and his touch-and-go communications...I do so love his products, however - it's like "take my money!".
So, two 20mm tanks is 24 points [NOTE - THIS IS A CORRECTION FROM EARLIER-SORRY JOHN!]- and I'll throw in extra for the freehand camoflage - anything to put airbrushes in their place. 28 points for you John, and we look forward to more next week - be they Japanese infantry, Napoleonics, or whatever else strikes your painting fancy!
