28mm Afrika Korp HMG team

 The summer painting frenzy continues...
 I have always been happy with the quality of the sculpting of Artizan Miniatures, however there does seem to be a bit of a size discrepancy between the gunner and the loader... It looks like the loader bought his kid to work!

As always, a mix of Vallejo and Citadell paints and varnishes were used.
Next on the table, sentries and greatcoat wearers!

28mm Afrika Korp Mortar crew

 Below are photos of the latest addition to my 28mm WW2 Afrika Korp; a mortar team.
The figures are from Artizan miniatures. I'm not a big fan of basing support weapons and their entire crew on a single base, so decided on each figure and the weapon based separately on 2p pieces.

As ever, the figures are painted with a combination of Citadel and Vallejo paints and varnishes.
The main paints used for the uniform are Vallejo Desert Yellow, Vallejo Iraqi Sand, Vallejo German Field Grey, Vallejo Khaki and Citadell Agrax Earth shade.

Next on the paint tray, a HMG team, Afrika Korp sentries and infantry in greatcoats.

Converting Western Europe to North Africa part 2

Now that the summer holidays have finally arrived, it means just one thing... PAINTING FRENZY!

Below are pictures of  the completed sandbagged guard post that I started months ago... the transformation from Europe to Africa is complete. The model was painted with a mix of Citadel and Vallejo paints and varnishes.
