I'm pleased to say I am back to painting, I have a new job in Glasgow where I will be living in a flat for 5 days of the week and going home to Aberdeen at the weekends. As I will be spending most of my week in Glasgow I decided to take the opportunity to do painting. This is the first of 20 Offensive Miniatures 101 Airborne troopers.
I painted this guy up as a colour test to make sure I got the right "look" to the figure. Colours are a mixture of GW and Vallejo. I really like how he turned out, although I botched the face and skin tone slightly due to attempting a new method which didn't quite work, but ultimately turned out okay.
In other news I changed my petrol guzzling Rover 75 for a monstrously powerful Vauxhall Vectra 3.0 Litre V6 CDTI SRI, Its lovely and fast but I get like 450 to 500 miles from the tank. Economy and speed for the win! And even better its in go faster red.

He looks pretty good to me, you even got the screaming eagle patch - outstanding!ReplyDelete
Very nice job. And "go faster red" is good too! It gives the local road police an excuse to blow the cobwebs out of their ride's engines.ReplyDelete
Looks rather dam fine to me, the patch is brilliantReplyDelete
Cheers chaps, I've not painted anything American before so he's a first! Hope to get the rest done next week.ReplyDelete
The 504thPIR would be pleased with you there and for very good reason too have are brilliant mate. Glasgow has a good wargames club I believe and some chap actually play VBCW too. Good luck with the new job mate.ReplyDelete
