I finally have gotten around to getting some paint on these Roskopf NATO hordes I purchased a few months ago. I took Paul's suggestions regarding the colors and while my patterns are a little goofy, it sure beats hand-painting the disruption scheme on there. The colors are Tamiya NATO Green, NATO Brown, and your standard generic black spray underneath, using blue tac for the camo.
It took me awhile but like I said, it sure beats hand-painting it on.
|Luchs Reconnaissance vehicle|
|Mighty host of Leopard I's|
|Not bad detail on the Roskopf vehicles. They're about 1/100 in scale. Perfect for my needs!|
|Marders in their hide sites...|
|The mighty M106 (?) mortar carrier|
|Shockingly, horrifingly I ran out of NATO green through the painting so I had to finish with model master medium green which really pisses me off!!|
|you can see the huge difference where I used the med. green vrs the NATO Green...|
|This bugger will need special treatment for the turret. Like everyone else, I think I'll whip up a camo net for him. I was thinking Gauze but lichen might work as well.|
|No brown on him. Might make him the platoon leader's (Or Co'y Commander) tank|
Lots of other projects going on. Finally getting around to making buildings and more terrain as well as getting more WWII Soviets painted and based. Also there is a huge lot of WWII Armor waiting for their detailing as well.
After playing some Battlegroup: Kursk and horsing around with yet more rules sets, I need to get back into the swing of some projects. My next game will most likely be a modern game using the old, reliable "Team Yankee" boardgame rules converted to miniature and using the vehicles above.
Anyone remember the "Summer of Horse and Musket"???
