Two of my friends play FoG:R and needed some markers to indicate the presence of light guns with their units. We agreed that using 6mm guns from Baccus placed in front of the 15mm figures might work and they asked me to paint and base them. Here is the result. I have used brightly coloured flock to simulate flowers. I don't know if it worked or not and I'll cover it up if Fredrik and Fredric don't like it.
Well here we go:
So, let's hear it from you readers: did it work? At all? Sort of? On some bases?
And here they are, with Baccus miniatures for reference.
A saw mill and a cottage
And two different types of tent.
All very nice stuff indeed, both the buildings and the paint jobs. I might have to base the houses to bring them up a little as my miniatures are on pretty thick bases and seem to tower over their houses.
Today at least I have a small contribution to this project, another house from Timecast that was included in the Baccus boxed set. I do believe this is the last of the houses from that set, now I just need to locate them all.
Painted with Vallejo and Coat d'Arms as usual. Behind the fence you can just make out some flock. I will probably add more to help it blend into the terrain once I figure out how the terrain will be designed.
And there is more to come soon as I finally took pictures of the lovely Leven houses that Ian sent me!
This guy is not throwing his toys out of the pram, he is in fact filling it up with toys! The figure is from an old TQD Models Group Build and is sculpted by Tony Boustead. I have another one just like it but with a Polish beret that I will paint and keep for myself, this one is to be a present for a friend.
He is painted using Vallejo and Coat d'Arms. The base is a mix of cat litter, bits of plaster, a busted computer motherboard and Juweela bricks.
Following on from the post about Christmas, I have another one about gifts. While looking at what I achieved hobby-wise in 2013 and what I hoped for in 2014, I realised that I have a lot of stuff that was given to me. A LOT of stuff. Then I realised, if people have been kind enough to give me models, figures and other stuff, isn't it rude to buy more stuff and paint that before I paint the gifts? That set the scene for 2014:The Year Of Gratitude Below is an incomplete list of stuff that have been given to me and as such will have priority during 2014. 1 StuG from Jocke, to become Hippo Teams tank.
1 StuG from Laffe, to become a Sturmi
1 Sherman from Laffe, fate unknown 1 Grant from Jocke, to become Rabbit Teams tank.
2 PzIV from Jocke, 1 to be a East Front winter tank,
one to become Anglerfish Teams tank.
1 set of Warlord Celts from Jocke, to become wildmen for Dux Gondorum 1 set of Perry 8th Army Brits from Laffe, to become mostly LRDG 1 set German Support Weapons from Zipee, to go to Normandy for GothCon 1 Normandy farmhouse from Rich, also Normandy for GothCon 1 Kübelwagen from Daniel, to become a winter painted vehicle 1 Schwimmwagen from Daniel, also to become a winter painted vehicle 3 Panthers from Patrice, to become wreck markers as they are pretty busted up already a lot of 6mm ACW infantry from Laffe, for TCHAE or Longstreet a bunch of 15mm trenches from Laffe, for Dien Bien Phu 1 Milicast LRDG truck from Secret Santa, for the continued LRDG project Now, if you know anything else I have that was given, perhaps because you gave it, perhaps because I have mentioned it, please let me know and I will add it to the list.
