Been a while since I've posted up any projects as I've been flat out with house hunting and work stuff. However I've been cracking along with some 1/56 scale WW2 projects for Bolt Action.

First up is the Italeri Cromwell. Assembled pretty nicely, however the top hatch pissed me off as orginally I wa going to have it open with the commander coming out and it refused to stay in place. Then refused to glue down flat.

Ended up using a Vallejo mix for the SCC15 Olive Drab, which we all know is a complicated one to research.





Second up is the Warlord Games universal carrier. Really nice and simple assembly on this one and was a fun little model to paint. Still requires more work on the figures.

The green on these looks fabulous. I really like that Cromwell. The only thing I'd do is drill out the ends of the MGs.

Nice work D-MA.
I love the expression on the Bren's front seat passengers' face.

Cheers dudes. I'll be drilling out the barrels shortly and doing a lot more work on the figures on the bren carrier. Just ran out of time to do it before the event last weeked.

I'll also be adding some fresh mud splashes and more earth/dust effects.as well. But not too much as I'm wanting these relatively clean.
