The matt varnished Shermans & Churchills

As promised in the previous post, the finished articles are here:  Plastic Soldier Company 20mm Shermans, 15mm Churchills, and Battlefront Bren Carriers all painted in Halfords cammo green.


This really has nailed that "bronze-green" effect I was hoping for!


PSC US infantryman based on a penny for scale.


Not quite sure what's gone awry with the varnishing on this flank of the tank, it's not as obvious in real life as on this photo.


The top decks look great to me - the "puddled" Army Painter varnish on the one in the foreground's read deck is something I'm quite happy about actually - maybe it could have been brushed out a little though?



And the Churchills... again a great result IMO


I am toying with the idea of a final drybrush, but the details already "pop" so much I'm not sure if that would be too much..?


The colour that's been achieved is pretty much perfect IMO


The early version turret AVRE. Several of the transfers have ended up showing their edges, which is annoying as this normally doesn't happen with my "two layers of clear gloss" technique - maybe my gloss poly needs replacing - or maybe they were just old transfers?


For essentially a one-piece casting these track assemblies are fantastic - well done PSC!


The drybrushing really picks out the stowage boxes too.


Morer slightly odd effects on the big blank flanks of the Shermans here - but again, not as bad in the real world, and in some ways quite good to have it so irregular (ish). The driver's face has done really well here.

The Battlefront bren carriers.


A final close-up of a rather smug chap - probably waiting for his cup of tea! Make sure you saw the first post too in this two-part series.

Japanese WW2 Snipers

I've added three snipers to my Japanese PBI army. These are Peter Pig figures, and are bedecked with various items of jungle foliage.

They are a little late for my PBI Japanese battle reports from last year...

 This isn't the most wordy blog post ever, but hey, I just finished them and wanted to share them with you all..
The pack has three variants in it, standing, kneeling and prone



They are painted in an Army Painter Leather Brown undercoat, with Coat d'Arms Japanese Uniform over the top, all topped off with Army Painter Strong Tone.

Forged in Battle WW2 American Infantry

I've been tempted into buying a WW2 American company for PBI - adding in some Command Decision half tracks and some tanks from Battlefront. There are some pictures here

PBI Battle Reports / Photos

Some great WW2 photos - battle reports are a bit sketchy, as PBI is often so fast paced, and also I didn't want to spoil the photos as some are really quite nice!
