Finally finished some support units for my Bolt Action winter Soviets. Observer, medium machine gun, and medium mortar, all 28mm. Should've done some more paint work on the bases before I applied the snow. Oops. They'll look good on the table.

Great job on these, that snow looks very wet and cold!

 

Thanks!  Woodland Scenic's snow.  I  mix white glue and water ~50/50, then stir in  'snow' to a consistency I like and apply it with a toothpick.  While the powder is opaque, when you do this it becomes somewhat translucent, hence the comment about doing a better job of painting the bases before applying the snow.  I wasn't happy after the first round dried, so I mixed another batch and filled in some of the shallow spots to get what you see here.

      Finished a couple more gang members for Warlord Games Judge Dredd game.  Painted with reaper and Vallejo.  In theory they'll get used for demos so I didn't want to burn a lot f time on the bases.  These were some of their first figures in their new resin.  It's kind of like Bones I as far as material goes.  Also think they some of their early  ones in 3d modelling as the "engraving" is almost too light.  makes it hard to pick out details and you've got to be careful not to apply too heavy a coat or you'll fill in lines pretty easily.

      Street Judge and a couple of members from the street gang box. These are cast in WGs  new resin, and I'm not sure about it. Stuff is very flexible and the detail on the gangers is very shallow so you have use a light touch with the paint and it can be hard to figure out what you're painting. Turned out ok.

      Warlord has released a Korean War supplement for Bolt Action as well as some miniatures.  Since I already had some minis for the Ethiopian Kagnew Battalion that Haile Selasse sent to fight in Korea, I decided that I needed someone for them to fight and have thus started a Chinese PVA force.  Also I'd like to get them done quick like so after some experiments I decided to do the uniforms with a combination of Army Painter and GW Contrast paint.    
       

       
      Since that isn't quite a horde, I have a couple of extra squads on order.
       
      A closeup.  Their skin has just a base coat and the fur hats haven't been started.  
       

       
      If you want to compare, the ones on yellow bases were done with AP primer and soft tone while the ones on pale bases were done with Contrast.

      Look at that title. Are you made of stone? You want to see exactly that thing, and brother, sister or other, THAT IS WHAT WE GOT HERE.

      Painted mostly with GW contrast, reaper sample green, and some craft-store metallics. My favorite detail: the comparatively dainty holster for a big ol'  drum-fed gun.



      Here's the  big fella with the rest of General Jombi's Guerilla Troops (also from Eureka, posted elsewhere):



      And because I already had the camera out, here's All the Apes I Got.

      @SisterMaryNapalm and I both have some German Grenadiers (and I think he was some Fallschirmjager as well) that we are working on, and since that's a fine coincidence I thought it would be fun to share a thread with our work on them.  I know we're at least using somewhat different paints, and possibly also different methods, so it might be interesting to see how they turn out.  
       
      These are mine from the Bolt Action Band of Brothers starter set.  I have another squad, but all of those are wearing standard Feldgrau uniforms so they're represented here by the Leutnant with binoculars and map, and the NCO with field cap and submachinegun.  Most of the others are wearing camouflaged tent quarters, so that should prove... challenging.  At this stage, I've assembled them, primed them with stynylrez, and they've got a coat of VMC Feldgrau that I darkened 50/50 with Reaper Brown Liner.  They're more assembled than I'd probably prefer, but I'm used to figures with fewer pieces so I haven't quite got a working method worked out for multipart multioption plastic figures yet.  I don't expect it will be too much trouble.  I hope not, anyway.  
       
      Apologies for any craptacular photos, I'm compelled to use my ancient Galaxy S3 and haven't yet replaced my camera.  Frankenphone sometimes works, and sometimes it calls in sick.
