From PhilH - 15mm WWII US Support Elements (54 Points)
As well as my other small offering this week, I've finished further support elements for my 15mm US Chain of Command force. I'll happily admit that I've not nailed painting 15mm miniatures - I find myself using 28mm techniques and coming out with results that seem...'ok'. I also sidestepped from Battlefront to Peter Pig, which has thrown up some scale oddities - notably inconsistent heads/helmet sizes, even within the PP range.
Well, enough gripes, without further ado, there is a 57mm anti-tank gun and 50.cal...
...a few more infantry stands...
...and engineer mine clearance team and flamethrower teams. the singly-based chap should be a medic, but I've just noticed I forgot to add some markings, in my enthusiasm to finish and photograph.
And a group shot:
These are some lovely 15s to be sure Phil - I particularly impressed with your groundwork. I agree, the transition from painting 28mm to 15 can be a bit jarring, especially for a painter such as yourself who uses a lot of layering and blending. I've seen the Peter Pig range and have been generally impressed - I would expect their variation in poses and good casting quality probably overshadows any slips in scaling?
