I have been working on these off and on since December. I just don't have enough time to paint anymore and a couple of other projects ended up taking priority.

The two half tracked vehicles are the Pak 40 Auf S307(f) and the fully tracked vehicle with the big gun is a Geschutzwagen 39H(f). These vehicles are from the 21st Panzer Division during the Normandy invasion. At the time the 21st was critically short of armored vehicles so Alfred Becker setup a workshop and lead the team that converted the captured French armor. On the halftrack vehicles the designation indicates that it is equipped with the German 75mm anti-tank gun mounted on an S307 halftrack with the "(f)" indicating that it is French based. The same applies to the 39H(f), a vehicle based on the hull of a French 39H tank.

Very neat vehicles; I like the paint job.

 

I'm sorry if I missed it, but what scale are they?

These are technically 1/56th scale which most of the historical manufacturers have finally settled on as the proper scale for 28mm miniatures. My western town of Calamity is also being built to this scale.

      Hello everyone,
       
      So this is my first project ever posted in this forum - yay. I am so excited.
       
      Anyway - I have to admit I am not the best miniature painter - I am far away from that. I can't understand color theory, keep forgetting important steps and in those moments where I should be patient, I can't wait and ruin everything. Haha - nevertheless I try to become better and therefore I started this project.
       
      Some time ago I came up with the idea to create an all-female soviet infantry battalion for the Bolt Action wargame.
       
      If you want to know more, please check out this link: Strike Witches - All-Female Soviet Infantry Platoon (Warlord Games Forum)
       
      It soon became apparent to me that the use of infantry alone wouldn't make any sense, so I decided to get me some tanks and personnel to man them - tank riders and officers to command the vehicles.
       

       
      My army itself is painted in a merely tabletop standard, but as I am always flashed by what a good painter can achieve, I want to take the chance and try to enhance my skills by reading and watching tutorials on how to improve certain aspects of my painting and as the tanks will be standing out of the masses of infantry, I want their commanders to stand out, too.
       
      That said, I started painting the three ladies using i.e. Corporeas face painting tutorial, didn't like the outcome, stripped them (*chuckles*) of all the paint, started painting again, ruined the job once more, stripped them again, painted once more, liked the face, ruined the leather, stripped them again and so on - I guess a plastic kit would be molten by now.
       
      After a longer time without having the ability to paint, I returned to the painting table just to figure out I had forgotten almost everybit of knowledge I aquired regarding painting. So I went back here, but unfortunately Corporeas Tutorial was not "illustrated" anymore, thanks to photobucket.
       
      So I decided to join the forum to inspire myself how to paint and to make some steps forward in painting miniatures.
       
      Let's go.
       
      The original figure I got looked like this:
       

       

       
      Due to some ... breast issues in the wargaming forum I was present at that time ("Well, we like to play armies who in reality commited mass murder, but - oh my good - did you attach boobs to this figure?! How dare you?!" and so on) I decided to fuel the fire - and I really like the outcome. It reminds me a bit of anime figures. Haha.
       
      She looked like this:
       

       
      But as I wrote, I then totally screwed up the paintjob like a complete idiot and now I am back to square one.
       
      Well then ... here we go again.
       

       

       
      I had to correct some scratches in the Greenstuff, so that should be dry by tomorrow, then I'll base coat her and will start painting. Slowly and steady. One step after the other - and we will see where this ends.
       
      See you next time!

      The nice detail of this game is it can be used with just the Aircraft Cards without the miniatures if you need to travel light.  So now the WWII game:With all the planes to scale, makes the bombers huge.
      As I said, there is more to come, stay tuned.

      Hello everyone,
       
      New (or rather ... old) Show Off. Some time ago I read about Roza Shanina, a Soviet-Russian sniper who fought during WWII on the Russian front. So ... I kind of got bewitched by her. So I when Stoessis Heroes (small company's range of more or less famous heroes of WWII) started to produce a miniature inspired by Liudmyla Mykhailivna Pavlychenko, I had to get it, convert it and paint it.
       

       
      The picture that inspired me aaaaaand ....
       
      the outcome of my work.

      I have managed to side track myself onto another project. This is to support my WWII skirmish gaming needs with a nice selection of buildings to represent farms and smaller villages in the Normandy countryside. I have been gradually acquiring troops for the Normandy invasion (and painting them even slower) and realized that I don't really have any terrain to go with them. This first building is an exercise in using photo realistic images to replace most of the painting that is normally required on one of these. While the initial building took longer than anticipated I think I succeeded in lowering the amount of time I needed to spend with a paint brush on it. I might even explore using some of these "textures" on buildings for my western town of Calamity.

       
      There are a number of posts on my blog going through the build
