First up are a couple of retro 28mm Chaos Warriors from the glory days of Citadel Miniatures.
The figure above was originally catalogued in the second Citadel Compendium and passed me by in the early eighties. Tastes change and some thirty years later here he is, making three of those originally shown in the catalogue making an appearance here. There will be more to follow soon
This Chaos Warrior came from an early box set and again others from this set may appear in the near future.
Next up are four German 20mm scale AFV's from WW2. All four are from Britannia Miniatures and yet again are great models to paint.
First up is the Hummel 150mm SP Artillery piece. Here I opted for no camouflaged patterns, however I washed the base coat in both Nuln Black and Devlan Mud for a darker and more earthy feel to the colour of the finished paint job.
Next up is the Sd Kfz 10 (1 ton), a prime mover that will see varied use on the gaming table in the future. This reflects its actual usage throughout the war as it was used in a variety of campaigns throughout.
Last from this period is the Sd Kfz 250/22/D Hanomag with PAK 40. Another iconic German Half Track variant. Painted with a basic camouflage pattern to allow the base colour its place this time.
The last part of this entry comes from the 15mm Sci- Fi forces that have been getting painted throughout this years challenge.
The red was added a touch of colour to bring out the dark grey of the drones and show that less some times really is more.
|Red go faster flashes!|
The attack drones shown below supporting a missile support section of sixteen figures and three command. Two of the figures in this section were painted before the Challenge began and aren't included in the total number of figures for the points tally.
The older painted figures stand out in the bases as they are lighter than the newly painted. Not enough, however to justify stripping and re-painting them.
Next, is a half infantry company to compliment the above missile section. These can be used on their own or with additional support elements to create a full company.
This concludes this entry and I hope you enjoy what is on show.
Cheers for now
What a wonderful sampling of figures Ross! It's great seeing those Chaos Warriors again - I definitely have good memories of them from my salad days. The German armour looks great (always liked the look of the Hummel), but I have to say that I'm quite taken by all this 15mm Sci-Fi stuff we've been treated to during this year's Challenge. I really like the drones in this entry, especially with their 'go faster' red stripe. :) I also think the airid basing is very well done.
Great work Ross!
