Well despite my grand plan of working a lot on those during my holidays it kinda…. didn’t really happen.

 

Anyhow! here is the scout platoon and the ITV platoon that are done!

The first batch of six Abrams are also nearly done and I hope to do an update this week for those too, without any delay here are the pictures!

Can’t believe it’s been so long since I updated this projet.

Well… 3 forces are done, one force and my actual first Team Yankee force remains…. the Americans. I started my holidays today and here they are

Hello Holidays!

Already undercoated black 3 more Abrams, will pre highlight them this afternoon and base color them tomorrow morning.

Might base color the 3 M901  later today.

As for the Abrams one question remains….. MERDC or Foliage green…. tempted to go Foliage green for historcal accuracy but also currently a bit worried about the time required for MERDC, it also means that potentially I could do a second company of Abrams in MERDC in the futur if I want to expend that army (very likely), anyway comment if you got an opinion on the matter 🙂

And they got Hinds… behind (sorry I still haven’t gotten over it from the bootcamp :P)

THis is a bit of a omage to one of my opponent from the Bootcamp @oriskani Who I met on the field of battle with his Russians and my Proud US Tank Company (who are still not painted… but it’s the next army).

Without due the picture of the addition first!

Damn it no Lloyd shot! oh well, the Russians win or die but do not retreat. (lame excuse I know)

And the whole 100 pts force

Also here are the steps 🙂

I must say that due to a spirit that was a bit “I just want to get it done” I did not take a picture for each step 😉  But considering that I have already ideas for what will come next…. if there are comments on it, I might do a step by step tutorial with pictures of each step.

So I was bad I didn’t really do any during the work update.

 

But I finished my 3 Leopards 2 and my Tw…. I mean three Jaguar , I couldn’t leave the last one out, especially as it would have left a box on the shelves and a unit incomplete.

So here are the new boys!

Hello everyone,

So without further due, here is the british reinforcement!

British army.... DONE!

And the family picture

 

Damn I just miss one Chieftain to complete a FULL squadron…

British army.... DONE!

And then I started hammering up the Soviets. Which I might have started to build when painting the British >P

 

 

British army.... DONE!

And Friday night while I was aibrushing those for the base coat Disaster stuck the Glorious soviet army. my AK 4134 Green Khaki ran out….

Reorder has been issued, and they are luckier that the WWII Russian I wanted to do for the other project who got no decals but the decals have been put on back order >D

So apparently the big box of doom is late…. never fear! I did get myself a regular box of Chieftain, which means I’ll be able to do the last Troop of Chieftains with Stillbrew armor, have an extra one to have a full HQ and keep the last one to do a Troop of regular Chieftain with the 2  that will be in the new box of doom.

Meaning that if I get an extra box of Chieftan at like… Salute…. I could do the HQ and another troop to have a second Squadron of those lovely tanks… DAMN you brain!

Hello,

So I started to work on the brits, expending the 2  troops of 2 that I already have to 3tanks and adding a third 3  tanks platoon. Also worked on the Scorpion platoon.

Everything was undercoated black, zenigh highlighted with a rattlecan then base coated Team Yankee Chieftain Green 348 through an airbrush.

After that I used the magic Mig Masking Putty that Gerry showed me at the FOW Desert boot camp. and tadaaaa here is the result.

Still got to get the last platoon of 3 Chieftains from my orders on OTT store 😛

Good start for the brits
