Today a rather productive week came to a sudden halt as I'm suffering from a mighty hangover. Sometimes you really can feel one ain't a young grasshopper anymore. Maybe I simply should stop all this drinking nonsense and better do some proper "Gentleman" stuff like maybe refurbish old cars or the like.
But on to the real reasons for this post. Next to some other as yet strictly confidential other stuff I painted a .30 cal Browning M1919 medium machine gun team.
Again Artizan minis but I'm a bit unhappy with these guys. First a standing/ walking ammunition carrier for an obviously firing team makes no sense to me. If he would be running in a slightly crouched pose I'd be fine but this way I think I'll replace him some time with the kneeling one from Warlord Games. Secondly the faces of the two prone figures are slightly miscast.
These guys are my second MMG team for my US force as in Bolt Action the Americans can take up to three MMG's as a special rule. Would like to see the Germans getting up to three light or medium mortars to represent their abundant use of it.
Anyway I'm quite happy with how they turned out. As I was asked how I do my sabot multi bases lately I'll do a post on it in the next days. Don't think I'm up to it today :-)
So all that's left for now to "finish" the US force for now(if an army is ever finished) there's just an M3 halftrack waiting to get finished on the painting table. But at the moment I don't feel like doing vehicles so he might sit there for a bit longer.
Thanks for viewing and I hope you enjoyed!
