Private Chapman has been in stasis for 1,538 days and awake for two. Private Chapman is wondering where she is, when she is and what her mission is. Private Chapman is also pondering why she hasn't been issued desert pattern armour.
Private Chapman has just spotted something up ahead. Private Chapman's life expectancy is four minutes.
(Again, sorry about the photos which were taken on my phone.)
Here's another bit of ordnance - a WW II Japanese Type 97 Shinhoto Chi Ha Tank from Tamiya. 1/35 scale, all plastic, with flexible tracks. The kit dates back to the 80s. Fairly easy cleanup and assembly. Paashe VL airbrush and Tester's Model Master, et al, paints. Colored pencils for the paint chips, scratches, abrasions, etc. Reaper acrylics for the various oil, gas, dirt, and dust stains. Finished off with chalk pastels (old school). The base is a cutup, sanded, and stained oak plank from Home Depot. Name plate from a local trophy shop.
Now everyone can join in the fun in RC's Ordnance Category.
Qs and Cs welcomed.
Terezinya was painted up to be a vampire character in my dnd game, the rest are fairly self explanatory.
The translucent green Bones were given a coating of Grass Green India Ink and then had details highlighted out. They're retained their translucent quality while having better detail visibility.
Finally sort of cleaned up my desk, so there's actually room to work again... Not quite enough room for hubby to work on his side yet, but we'll get there soon. ish. TM.
Tentatively calling them the "Fiendish Flying Foxes" or something to that effect, but not fully certain yet hence the title not being as... fluffy as they usually are for me. Kind of want to sneak "fire" in there somewhere too (Fierce, Fiery, Flying Foxes sort of rolls off the tongue), but haven't quite figured that out just yet. ...And yes, I like alliteration, for some strange reason.
Anyways! Been slowly collecting various CAVs, and since the race I like the fluff of the most currently isn't really available (at least until September-ish, aka Malvernis in the 3rd kickstarter) I figured I'd start with a Ritterlich group! While I do have the rulebook, I haven't really read it yet but it's on the to-do "eventually" list.... So I aimed to go with at least 2 of what I liked, and 4 of what I really liked. Seems to work at least for basics out of the gate anyways... Thanks to a package going missing for over two months (and being reshipped due to such), I wound up with a few more than originally planned in some areas ^_^;;;;
So, just what do the foxes have, at least so far?
Attack: 2x 72231 Cataphract, 4x 72050 Firedrake, 4x 72267 Rhino II, 4x 72283 Sabertooth, 4x 72273 Tiger, 2x 72278 Wolverine
Fire Support: 6x 72282 Cheetah, 2x 72230 Silverback, 2x 72201 Tiamat
Recon: 2x 72208 Cougar
Extras as why not: 6x 72284 Enforcer (came as freebies, so maybe spoils of war? :P)
Most are still in blister packs, but I do have five of them on the desk so far.....
^My first Cougar.... Who will also be the first, uhm... subject for my Vallejo terrain paste...
^Initial layout for the bases for my Cataphracts!
^My two Silverbacks, although I suspect more will see the table at some point because I apparently love missiles.
Why the 40mm circular bases? Uhm, well... It's partially because I prefer circular ones, partially because they're more stable on 40mm bases, and also because there's more room to do basing stuff with ^_^;;;;;;
Haven't post anything here for so long...
I'm not really following any color scheme here, since I am not familiar with the lore of CAV at all (I'm more interested in the game).
Also I wish I learnt a bit more about painting technique for glowing effect before painting the windows...
