This week I managed to get a couple of things finished. First up, a Humber scout car for Battle Group Fall of the Reich. This will give my 6th Armoured Churchills some recce capability, and another mortar spotter. The model is from Peter Pig.
I also managed to get another unit of Baccus 6mm ECW infantry finished, so that project is ticking along ok as well.
And while I'm at it, here's a quick cool product review.
A while back I spotted some Tamiya Diorama Texture Paint in my local hobby store and gave it a go. I've since come to the conclusion that this stuff is the bomb. Basically it's a very thick acrylic paint paste with lots of grit in it, available in a range of different soil, snow, sand and even grass and tarmac effects. I apply it to bases with a palette knife, and it creates a nice hard textured surface that can easily be drybrushed.
I've also recently tried diluting the earth shade, adding some lighter paint and dabbing it around the running gear of tanks, and it looks pretty good. Not as cheap as PVA and sand, but looks good I think. Does anyone else use this?
Have a great week, everyone.
