A slight diversion

Having spent the majority of the last few months either moving house or painting germans, I felt I needed a little change. And as I’ve just finished my German army (excluding the Panzer III Ausf J I “accidentally” ordered) and with getting a little frustrated trying to pin down the paint scheme for my USMC force, I thought I’d finish up the Orc Chariot my wonderful wife bought me last year.

It was nice to focus specifically on one model and the freedom of having a more open palette for colours was tremendously refreshing, ironic considering that a freer palette in itself can be a burden when trying to come up with a new scheme for something. I also cracked open the kolinsky brushes I’d been sitting on since buying them at Fiasco last year, they are a joy to use but I’m feeling rather nervous about ruining them like I do with so many other brushes. I’ve ordered some Zest-It – Acrylic Brush Cleaner & Reviver in the hope of keeping more of my brushes on the cleaner side.

Late War Germans

It’s taken a while, but I’ve finally finished all my germans! Here’s some photos of all my guys – it’s 95% late war, but theres a few things in there for early war if i want to re-use the force. The Sdkfz 221 and the 5cm mortar for one. The last thing for me to finish was the nebelwerfer as I bought that while we still played Bolt Action, but since moving to Chain of Command it’s become somewhat redundant due to the rules not categoring for large artillery like Bolt Action does. Anyway, Andy’s come up with a scenario for us to use the nebelwerfer as a centrepiece so it’s only fair I got it finished so it would at least look good on the table!
