From: BrettM - UK 15mm Troops (74 points)

UK Motor Rifle Platoon

First attempt at painting UK troops for Flames of War. I think they came out pretty good.

Need to hit these guys with anti shine still a tad to glossy for my taste. A bit to cold to attempt that outside yet. Never have much luck with the Spray cans when temp is off. This was the final guys left from Monty's Hounds set back before Flames went to the new edition.

Trying for a close up here. I did use a Army Painter flesh wash on all the flesh parts. Added a bit more depth to the faces without having to highlight. Think I'll start doing this from now on.

Point wise we are at 37 figures at 15mm for a total of  74 points.

Hoi there Brett, great entry today mate! It surely is a very good first venture into 15mm Flames of War, you've done them up a treat. Not only did you get the English uniform colour spot on, your grouping of the figures on the bases and the basework itself is very nice as well.

Great stuff, I can't wait to see the rest of your FoW project, come on there's still 11 days of Challenge time you can use to wow us.


  1. Nice troops and basing!
    Best Iain

  2. Well done Brett. I sympathize regarding issues of spray - it's always too hot, or too cold, or too something...and sometimes the gloss still lingers with even the matte-est of matte sprays...good luck solving that one!

  3. Nice work Brett - ah yes the perils of spray bombs.
