    Hi Folks

    After working 10 nights on the run over the Christmas holiday I was determined that I was going to grab a few days to finish off a few projects that I had laying around on the bench for the past few months.

    This is something that I started in Summer 2012 and never got round to finishing it because of work and painting commissions. It’s made up from two 1/32nd scale Alpine figures and I think a couple of Hornet heads, can’t remember back that far! The tank wedgie is from Darius Miniatures.
    All figures and tank painted and weathered in Vallejo acrylics. The Tank section was airbrush for most part of it with thin acrylic washes applied in layers to create a weathered and rust look.. The tank tracks were painted in plaster, water and Vallejo paint to give colour, applied to tracks and lower hull to give a dried mud effect.

    The two camo patterns of the figure took a long time to paint and it was quite tedious highlighting and shading each small section, I used a couple of Calvin Tan articles as painting guides to help me along the way.

    Any comments good or bad most welcome.

    I feel something Napoleonic coming next!
    Cheers
    Tommi
