Wow, it's been a little while between pic and update.
Change of plan, I will now only use the Sherman and figures in a dio for AiC, there was no way I was going to get this even close to being done.
Bit closer now, still a fair bit to do though.
What do you think, comment and criticism appreciated and accepted.

Tank's nicely painted, and I like the mud as well, and given parts of Italy like Romagna were so muddy the army even tried fitting grousers on the tracks to cope with it all, you could throw more mud around and still not have enough!

My only comment would be to tone down the yellow/green of the lichen (?) a bit so it's not so bright, partly because I associate mud with winter and hence plants and vegetation are not as vibrant generally speaking, and also it will be less distracting to the eye, making for a more unified composition. Perhaps the camera is telling porkies so IRL it's more neutral looking and if so, all is good.

Persoanlly I would down size some ,actually all of the scratches. They appear to much considering the operational speed of the vehicle when moving through vegetation that would do that sort of damage. I know its trendy to add these but having done some 4 wheel drive through some vegetation the vehicle thanksfully never had such scratches.

Appreciate the comments guys.
There is still work to do on the terrain so the scrub can get toned down a bit ( it is straight out of the packet at moment )
I see what you mean about the scratched Mark,I'll attempt to reduce them a little. Cheers.
Any advice on whether or not I should make the rest of the ground work look wet ?

In a 4x4 vehicle you tend to drive down tracks with roadside vegetation. An AFV routinely punches through hedgerows, orchards and tree lines as well as rubbing against banks of river banks and re-entrants etc. The dirt, dust and mud not to mention occasionally the actual paintwork does get scratched.

Not to mention we drive them like rental cars :P

If you check actual photos you would struggle to find large scratches in armour.
Going through hedgerows was only psssible with a Cullin device fitted and heavy wooded vegetation risked damage to track pins and without supporting infantry ambush..

I really like that a lot. The muddy puddle sells it. The figures look great too.
