The Insurgent painting competition has closed! We are collating all of the images which were sent in now. We will show them off, along with announcing our winners later this week. A big thanks to all those who entered, keep an eye out for the images!
As for my Call to Arms forces....
All of the Australians had made the painting table, unfortunately the two fire-team leaders have lost the aerials for their backpack radios.
As a simple solution, I used a drill, greenstuff and a spare metal pike from one ancients army or another (I mainly use these to pin with), to make some radio aerials for my fire-team leaders.
While not as perfect as the aerials that Empress provide, these will be a whole lot less fragile, and will still look the part.
Now as to painting, this is where I have got to so far on the Australians:
All of them have their camo done, now it is just skin, weapons, detailing and basing.
Here is a close up of one of the squad leaders, showing off how the Crye camo currently looks:
I am hoping to get the detailing done this week.
And as for the Taliban?
Well, progress is being made, all of them have got the base colours done on their clothing, now I need to ink/highlight that, then do the skin, weapons, webbing, beards etc.
And I still haven't started on the technical.
But still, progress is progress!
