Painting up the Italians


Ciao,

I've been working on the Italians for the paint and play being run down at the Shoppe. I've been pretty happy with the work so far, used my crappy camera to take some shots, but it has never done close ups very well.

This is the general painting area and all the stuff in its general areas... Most of the 600 points is on the dirty paper towel. For those I still need to do the highlight colors after doing the wash on the infantry and guns. The tank teams need the treads done as well as some detail pick outs. Not sure how I'm going to do the markings yet.

This is the motociclo platoon. They are all but done except for some tuffs of static grass for dead weeds.


The last picture to show is my one objective for round one.


The camp scene is nearly done, static grass and work on the fire pit a bit as well as the highlights on the troopers to help bring back some of the detail following the wash. Also need to dry brush the palm a bit to make it greener... I guess it isn't quite ready for prime time yet. :)

A few more happy snaps can be found here

Hope to get a game in on Friday with them.

I like what I see so far. You've got a great start there JP. I'll dig around in all my web archives to see if I can find something to help you with the Italian markings.

John,

Pretty sure I have some stuff to help with marking - though it is aimed more at the Carri than anything else.

Catch you Saturday!

Paul - Thanks!

Steve - Check your email. :) I won't be able to be early on Saturday, but can make Friday... Either at the Shoppe or at your place.
