With this years Challenge slowly coming to a close I'm rather proud to have reached my personal target. With this submission I've surpassed the goal of 80 painted miniatures I set for myself by 6. This means I've already painted 25 miniatures more than last year (61 + 1 AFV) and still there are two weeks to go.
But don't expect me to do much more for the last few days. I'm trying to avoid the 'painters burn out' I suffered from last year and therefore will be reducing my output drastically.
So today I've finished the second infantry section for my BEF. Again these are all Warlord Games figures. There are still some more additions to come but it's a small but playable force now at last.
This lot was quite a pain in the back to clean up. Mould lines and flash all over the miniatures. Compared to my last batch of the same figures I was rather disappointed.
For sake of consistency within the force the uniforms are still too bright but will look alright on the table I think.
Elsewhere I was asked If I had any reference for the Mickey Mouse camo I used for the BEF helmets. As some of you might be interested as well here's my source:
And last but not least here's Captain Campbell at your service. He somehow lost his ride after a brief but fierce encounter with a German Messerschmitt over Dunkirk.
Well, at the very least he hasn't lost his beloved pipe over the pretty uncomfortable landing. Is there anything better than a pipe and a cup of tea to settle the nerves? Speaking of tea... Blimey! Has he actually forgotten to take his thermal jug with him before the plane crashed?
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed!
