2nd CompanyDSCI0001.thumb.JPG.f43340ad15f50e3e3e03e554a30ff052.JPG

The Puma is for the Recon Platoon of 1st Company to make it complete.  The plastic base on the Fire Drake just does not cut it.  I ordered a bunch of Iron Wind Metals bases to sub for any metal CAV that comes with them.  Even though they are a bit smaller I just turn them upside down and they work okay.  I think I will do another Fire Drake for 1st Co’s.

1st Company is complete with the added Puma, well except for the Fire Drake basing situation.  2nd Company is complete, except for the base change of the Fire Drake.

Next up will be a Desert Camouflage, using the same pattern.   Being from the Cold War era, most people have probably never seen these live.  I find these patterns more interesting than the current patterns being used by the Army.

Here is the next unit with the Earth Red base color.DSCI0001.thumb.JPG.c9a089149f0273eaf8999bbdbcf7993d.JPG  The second major color is Earth Yellow, then Sand, with Black finishing up.  Here is two shots of the other colors, hopefully one of them shows up the colors well enough.DSCI0011.thumb.JPG.f510144bd29ac7ea2676a510e483d165.JPGDSCI0013.thumb.JPG.9db0329815a864759b87c6881a33b93b.JPG

A slight interruption with this 2nd. Cav. unit.  Since I had it out for a battle, I decided to finish it off when the game was over.  It was mostly just the speckled camo and not much else.  I also decided to number the tanks to better keep track of who is who and where.

Well, back to the Desert Camo.  Phase 1 is complete.DSCI0001.thumb.JPG.a73a5996ecb49e621819210439368980.JPG Two colors to go as well as basing prep.  The Banshees will be glued to their stands when the bases are finished.  This force consists of Tsukai Transports, Lance, and Dragoon Armor.DSCI0003.thumb.JPG.ba5b0f9e42299ad315da64497b7453a4.JPG Banshee Hover Tanks and Scarab armor.DSCI0004.thumb.JPG.f4bbfc5d30de26d8ad5ebae4bf299a98.JPG  The Command Group of A Spider, Tsukais, Recluse, and a Tsuiseki CAS; Centurions, Scorpions, and Mantises.DSCI0006.thumb.JPG.d1bd7d39ad46c75d9394a025baa75688.JPG  Centurion, Mastodon, Star Hawk VI, Dictator '70, Ogre, Revenant, and KatanasDSCI0005.thumb.JPG.2e1bab18abc41673dfef50abc91b0b27.JPG

So, Phase 2, full camo pattern is complete.  Phase 3 will be the details; tracks, tires, wind screens, port holes, gun metal parts, etc.  Also mounting the hover tanks.  The Verdant camo A-10... I mean Tsuiseki, was my lazy way of finding the pattern instead of looking up the A-10 pattern I used.

Phase3 is now complete. A Mechanized Company,DSCI0007a.thumb.JPG.23784608e0d7c161426ed2fcbcbe9c00.JPG Four Lances/Platoons of C.A.V.DSCI0009.thumb.JPG.cdfd87182fd8f8b91b5291df85e3b20e.JPG  The blues and greens represent Sensor Arrays.  The barrels of the Starhawk VI are not painted as the heat from firing the rotary cannons would just burn off the paint.DSCI0010.thumb.JPG.f2de2c87a7bdf5d1ad2e11456319c1f8.JPG  The green in the rotary cannons represent Tracer rounds being fired.  The completed battalion.DSCI0011.thumb.JPG.3144a3bfc581bd7fcf81b831a71cab16.JPG

Correction:  This is the complete collection of the 5th and 6th Battalions of the 42nd Black Watch Legion, regular forces, having three companies each.DSCI00011a.thumb.JPG.6d514a09e7d2669b53ec00d70230f3c2.JPG  The Blue and White units, mentioned sometime ago, are in the Guard units.  The formations include the Dingos painted by Spaztica utilizing his Desert Camo scheme.DSCI00012.thumb.JPG.ce54e41ca0735773cbdb27f5d6259ec1.JPG Eventually I will get around to dealing with shiny finishes with a matte coating. 

                  Next up will be the 2nd Battalion of the 2nd Cav., that has a forest green speckled camo pattern.  The lighter speckled camo pattern units I finished up just recently are the 1st Battalion of the 2nd Cav.

2nd Cav., 2nd Battalion

 

        The 4th company went along quite speedily.DSCI0001.thumb.JPG.cdcfdab128df594434860e0d366b5dbf.JPG  As shown, all are detailed as far as I want to go, I do not want to mess with the Camo pattern too much.   The lighter pattern seems to, somewhat, actually obscure the CAV unit.DSCI0002.thumb.JPG.d83b9ef20b58323e1fdfdda4bd62333d.JPGDSCI0003.thumb.JPG.e079a8204d73881eb6ca6d37de065468.JPGDSCI0004.thumb.JPG.a04a7b7ebc7480cd461d8d3e0454b894.JPGDSCI0005.thumb.JPG.1f5be848561327e2b4aea9e56a19b045.JPGDSCI0006.thumb.JPG.874fc6dd6aa60c65b6e9f2018715184e.JPG  An interesting development with the two Dictator '70s. They are different castings. One has more details.  In the overhead view you see more detail on the gun tail ends and missile pods. The barrel ends are bored out on one,  One upright missile launcher has two more rounds visible.  One of the canopies has a hood like structure.DSCI0008.thumb.JPG.e1b3aeea3196071a5904f465d2e5a72d.JPGDSCI0010.thumb.JPG.49898ef84809392059c08c538f0a4cad.JPG
