Bravo 66 to all elements this net,

 

The Drow returns!

 

So after a long hiatus, and battle with personal problems, I have picked up my brushes, Sable and Air, again...

 

Starting off with something rather simple, an armored task force for the Game Team Yankee, a WW III TABLETOP game(in 15mm scale), that if the war scenario in the game, and book by the same title, the members fighting in that fictional war would have included yours truly, as I was an M1 Abrams tank crewman in Germany on August 4, 1985...

 

So the first group is of afore mentioned M1s, after assembly and priming, they were base coated with Tamiya XF-67 NATO Green, using my Grex Genesis airbrush.

Next was to add the Black part of the NATO 3 color camouflage. This was done with my Iwata HP-SB Plus.

 

The tracks and road wheel rims were then done with Vallejo German Black, and the end connectors on the tracks with a mix of GW Boltgun metal, and Secret Weapon Brown and Orange rusts. This was done with a Ro&Co size 2 brush.

(thanks to all those that turned me on to Ro&Co!)

Sorry for the blurry turret pics, but the gun threw things off, and I haven't done this for over a year...

 

Not much but it is a new start...

 

I did a complete force for a friend in 2016, the WIP can be found here

 

Thanks for looking! 

George

final stages, airbrushed weathering with Vallejo Iraqi Sand, then the turrets were Glosscoated and 'Kill Rings' were added to the Barrels, as per the novel Team Yankee, which is the inspiration for, and name of the game...

B36 as the example for the others...

Another airbrushing weathering with the Iraqi Sand, with the turrets on the hulls, attaching the 2 TCs, (Tank Commanders), a final Dullcote, and I will be ready to move on to the next platoon...

 

Comments and critiques welcome!

 

B36 out

      So at Reapercon 2018, I scored the Duskwarden poster of Thregan Helmsplitter for my work at the auction, and of course, being the Duskwarden*, I have a couple of the minis as well.
         
       
      So I was thinking of using him as my next PC, but as I have hair, I wanted my mini to also...
      While working on another project with GS, as usual, I made to much, and decided to bite the bullet and do his hair...
      What do you think?




      Comments appreciated!

      Painting this guy up for ex's husband for their new campaign...
      Again, nothing much yet, but gotta keep track of colors....




       
      He's been sitting on the shelf of shame for a while, and the skin was done with GW Tanned flash, but I am going over that with SC 75 Arabic Shadow..
       
      eyes had been done at some point, so exact colors unknown...
       
      check back another time to see progress....
