I've been doing some "contract" work for Bear and I've been enjoying it. (photos by my phone-camera at my painting table. Not the best studio, but it'll do.)
|From the Bolt Action line from Warlord, late WWII SS troops.|
Some are in the tunic, some in the late war field blouse (waist length), while a few are
covered by the Zeltbahn shelter half/poncho. I used the late war SS "spring" camo pattern.
|This rifleman is in the camouflaged tunic and helmet cover.|
|An example of the Zeltbahn. Notice the lack of gaiters and the rolled socks.|
That's a nice touch.
|Field grey field blouse and Panzerfaust.|
Another nice touch are the rolled-up sleeves.
|One of my favouites - Zeltbahn and captured PPSh Soviet SMG.|
|For some reason, Warlord loves the soft officer's cap for their sprues. I'm not a fan, but these aren't my figs!|
|the ubiquitous and necessary MG-34.|
I dipped this fellow in the basing sand a little too early.
|Also for Bear, Perry Afrika Korps.|
Slightly smaller than the Warlord figs, but they look good.
Helmets, field caps, and both long and short boots are in evidence.
|A little closer and in better focus.|
I used three or four different light tan colours to get different shades of khaki uniforms
with a brown ink wash to pick out the folds and corners.
|I like Reaper's figures - well-detailed, lots of whimsy.|
Katie did the face and hair.
|Merlin Mouse? Hairy Potter?|
|A Samurai-mouse in his robes. He is carrying two swords... as he should.|
|I have to get out all of my "drab" colours for this medieval project. The figs are nicely detailed and fun to paint.|
Again I use a brown ink wash to pick out details.
|For the family's on-going Steampunk projects, this officer came straight from the Northwest Frontier.|
Another study in khaki.
