A late 80's tank heavy task force for coldwar commander/modern spearhead, mostly BPP with some ghq and h&r, waiting for h&r to open to get the inf to finish it

Also shows what happens when you can't remember if you brought spring or summer grass roll for basing

It's ok, it simulates them driving over someone else's lawn. They are still exquisite looking miniatures, and nicely painted too.

Could put patches of opposite basing on every base. It will tie in the force! I would paint the sides of the base brown, but there comes a point were you say it is done.

Very nice. Darkening the base edges (brown or black, even green) is easily done with a Sharpie. For armour, I usually try to avoid barrels overhanging the front of the base, which means more or less flush-mounting the rear to the back of the base. Otherwise, it is easy for them to be bent in normal handling.

Love the TF approach.

Also, where is that a/c base from? I have some A-10s and helicopters to do.

Thanks for sharing. Reminds me of an unfinished project or ten!!

Had to push them to the front cause I want to add unit id labels at the back, bases came from snmstuff
