I have added my last additions for 2017! More Waffen SS from Warlord Games, another mix of plastic and metal figures

it's my usual mix of pea dot and camo smocks! The more variety for me the better.
so that's about it for 2017
Thanks for looking guys and all the very best for 2018
Cheers for now Russ

Please feel free to check out my humble blog

Russ, amazing technique!
I wish I understood how you paint it looks so fluid, and as if you're applying paint quickly, but the results are stupendous!
I don't think that quickly as I paint, and not so to be able to understand what the end results will render (wonderful, developed proficiency, and a "connection" to your brush is all I can surmise)……enjoyed seeing your other projects on your blog too.

Thanks guys all comments are much appreciated.

Sascha thank you, its always nice to hear from someone who's work you've admired for many a year.

FlyXwire, thank you also, I have done a number of step by steps or tutorials for a better word. It may give you a insight to how I paint. They aren't the best but it may help. Here's the Waffen-SS tutorial
link and here's the link to my photobucket, just scroll down and view another album there are plenty to choose from
foxweasel, sorry! I hate to say it but there are more on their way. A few more heavy support weapons and hopefully soon some armour.

So thanks guys, every comment is warmly welcomed

Keep looking and I will keep posting
Cheers for now Russ

What paints do you use for your oak leaf camo? If you don't mind me asking?

bracken Supporting Member of TMP03 Jan 2018 9:07 a.m. PST

Johnbear44, normally I use vallejo colours for ww2 but for the oak leaf I used GW. I basecoat the smock in Dryad bark mixed with a tad of black. The green patches are Elysian green, highlighted with a touch of while and for the lighter brown patches l use Gorthur brown, once again highlighted with a touch of white. I'm actually doing a step by step tutorial on the oak leaf camo which shouldnt take to long to do. Hope that helps, if not just ask I'm always willing to help.

I have added the tutorial for Oak Leaf camo on my blog, it's my version of it. So it may not be totally accurate but it's good enough for me.

Thanks guys, I'm almost ready to kick on with more additions for my collection. I've being building more plastic panzer grenadier's from Warlord, they will be painted in a mix of field grey and pea dot. Just to add that bit more variety.
