From SteveM: 15mm German Konigstiger Platoon Two Tanks (12 Points)

Scale : 15mm (1/100)
Mfg : Battlefront Miniatures
Product : gbx14, gbx14
Material : metal and resin
Paints: automotive primer, Vallejo Model Color, Winsor &Newton Oil, AK enamel washes, AMMO paint, AMMO pigments, gloss varnish, matt vanish
Details: 2 tanks

Next up are some King Tigers. Cleaner that the other ones I did. These were painted for for a couple kids I know who received some tanks for Christmas. They asked nicely. :)  They wanted both turret types, the Henschel and the Porsche, so I did up both of them.  Hope they like them.

 These ones I skipped the oil paint dot method on the camo and went straight to washes.




REQUEST.....If someone wants to do assembly and cleaning (maybe basecoat?) any miniature and send it to me for the CurtGeld entry fee let me know as I'm looking for someone to partner up with. I'd do willing to do the rest of the painting and basing.  The miniature can be any scale and genre.

regards,
SteveM.


Hi again Steve, and thanks once again for treating us this Friday morning with another lovely pair of King Tigers. I've no doubt the recipients will be delighted with them.
 
I'm not good on my weathering lingo - could you share what the "oil paint dot method" is?

  2. Hi Steve I would have invited you to our Curtgeld crew (4 of us) but alas it is too late now. All figures painted and sent to the last member who will base them all.

    Maybe next time.

  9. If you're going to give someone a German tank model, given them a classic. Don't give them a Panzer 1 or II. I am sure these were well received.

  10. I'd be chuffed to have them and I have no 15mm WW2 at all! ;)
    Surely the wherchmacht motor pool is nearly empty except for a few oil spots!
