Got my order coming in for an entire 28mm infantry company worth of modern Peoples Liquidation Army.

To support them I found some incredibly accurate but super cheap toys that are perfect scale WZ551 or ZSL92 6x6 IFVs. I mean, they were like four bucks a piece so i couldn't pass them up. Only hiccup is they have no armament or turret. So, a quick email to some printers and I have turrets for either the 25mm or the 12.7mm hmg version raring to go.
Twelve of these so far.

Being a mechanized infantry company, they also have two PTL02 6x6 assault guns ready to support them and to act as tank destroyers.

There are also two PLL05 6x6 120mm gun/mortar versions for either direct or indirect fire support.

I also have a platoon of four Type 99A MBTs.

I think that I covered all bases so far so question follow in the next posts.

How do I paint them?

Latest cam schemes seem to be going from the two big choices of arid flek tarn knock off and digital woodland into a mottled digital design.

Looks like the latest is a mottled mix of light and dark green with tan, brown and black.

Any weapons system or support weapon I need to find or add?

Forgot to mention somewhere along the line I also picked up some four of the ZBD05 amphibious IFVs, so I cn do Marine Amphibious brigade troops too.

I love aliexpress for all their cheap diecast and toys.

I wonder if I should bother with figuring out what they use for attack and transport helicopters?

Pick a camo pattern you like and do that!
