Finished up basing the GHQ/FO for the German Kompanie. Tried out a bit of Silflour 'Buffalo Grass' (Late Summer color) and let me tell you, this stuff is awesome! Its so real looking that it looks like a weed sprouted out of your base! Very expensive though...
Added a shovel to the trail leg (as per photos) and new handles from wire. I may tone down the rust a bit once based.
I really do not like too much on the base. Not a fan of mini-diorama based infantry, lugging tons of terrain with them into houses, down roads, through the tulips...I plan on only adding a few cases and live/spent rounds surrounding the gun. I would really like a few stray rifles to base but can't bring myself to hack up perfectly good figures. I currently have the EW Germans out there on eBay so they are out unless they don't sell...hmmm...might be the best use for them.
Primed up the Russian Platoon HQs and a T-26S. Added a tow chain, a scratchbuilt toolbox and spare wheel and screened the air intake. As per photos of the real thing, these were commonly seen. Should be painting up these tomorrow...
Anyone know of any 15mm weapons manufactures out there??
