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.

The Belgians are Coming!


After a short bit of painting, the Belgians are now speeding ahead, and the finish post is in sight already! This is a rather grainy photo from my mobile phone.
Black undercoat, white drybrush, khaki paint job and half way through the backpacks...
