And so it begins!
Finally, my first small bag of models arrived from Heroics and Ross so I
spent a little bit of time this weekend basing most of it.
Atm it is a mix of BGK and BGO, most will get dual use anyway. With the
cost of 6mm, it is not a big issue but it stretches the money a bit.
To help out my opponent I've added a Sherman to my order that has now been suitable altered
(and I hope to enter in the 30mm build if I can manage in time). In
case you are wondering why the 222's base is different from the rest, it
is because from the old days in BKC I made the recce bases arrow shaped
for instant recognition. I just applied it to BGO and BGK as well,
making them easier for me to pick ut.
Some of the models have
been altered, added or replaced barrels with brass wire where needed,
and I need to buy me a new wallpaper brush to strip it for antennae.
know the open area left for a paper tab won't be to anyones taste, but
I'll add a coloured marker to the rear base rim as well to denote the
various types available in BGO/BGK (With their own Waffenfarbe, as in FW
HQ (Yellow)- Inf (White) - Tanks (Pink) - Artillery (Red) - Recce
(none, shape)- Engineer (Black)- Logistics (Blue) . And this time, the
rest of the rim will be black as I feel this works better with 6mm.
