Friday evening painting session, working on a few DAK figures, and posting these pictures from my mobile. Veteran figure enthusiasts will easily recognise the "Rommel" figure from an old Matchbox Wespe kit. Also a couple of Pegasus Germans posted for duty in North Africa thanks to a head swap and desert uniform paintjob.
Great work as usual.ReplyDelete
Thank you CTMM !Delete
As ever to your impeccable high standardReplyDelete
That Rommel figure is sweet
I am looking at the same figure thinking how do you get it looking so good!
Thanks a lot Georgie ! He's got such a lot of detail and the sculpting has such a lot of raised detail that it's a joy to paint. Block colours, a little light drybrushing, a wash and then touch up some lighter areas works wonders.Delete
Nice work John. The raised detail on Matchbox figures (soft and the odd hard plastic bod in their kits) has always been brilliant. Still remember the joy of painting my first box of Brits after struggling all my teen years to paint straight straps on Airfix figures. Probably giving away my age there... ;o)ReplyDelete
Thanks a lot Dave. If it's any consolation, I also remember my first box of Matchbox figures when they first came out lol.Delete
They look really good. I only recognise the 'Wespe' figure but I really like the other two conversions. I'll have to take a look at the Pegasus range more closely. I'm doing yanks just now...last 150 to go.ReplyDelete
Thank you ! I saw your Americans, superb stuff. The Pegasus figures are the ones from their German Mortar Team.Delete
