AK-47 is back on the menu, boys!

Finished a testmodel in 6mm for a future 20mm paintjob. As I am looking at 6mm for AK-47 right now, this one goes right into the scenery drawer, as this test was succesful. Heroics and Ross C-46 Commando, with modifications, and a suitable nackered paint job.

Buying the Farm: The last feed bunker

Been having issues with my Vallejo Polyurethane Matte varnish not drying matt and stripey. Long shakes, short shakes, shake and leave for a bit, nothing seems to work. Had to do some searching to find my pot of Daler Rowney Matt varnish, and all is well again. It makes everything dead flat.

3rd (empty) feed bunker done. Will double nicely as cover. It's one freshly cleaned out, so fresh soil and just a few weeds left.

Phantom Leader toutched down.

Just received Phantom Leader, the Vietnam Air War Solitaire Strategy game. I had my eye on it for a few years now and I spotted a copy on Marktplaats 6-8 month ago... but that seller insisted on at least 50 euros for some reason. I saved the search, this week another one popped up and my bid of 15 euros was accepted.

Gone over the contents, it is practically mint, complete, just need to look in the second hand stores for a suitable small box to hold all of the counters and something to keep the cards in one place as well.

Well chuffed.

Painting some 6mm testers - Syria, Ukraine, Soviets

Did some testers tonight to get some ideas out of my system. 
Pic 1: L: Ukranian BMP-1 captured by Donbass Seperatists with Ukranian graffiti painted out. M: Ukranian BMP-1 R: Ukranian Militia Buggy 
Pic 2: L: Syrian Dalek (custom conversion) R: Daesh VBIED Pic 
3: My test for Russian Green (which I'm happy with) 

Everything you see is based on photographs, no fantasy here.

Edit: Pictures I copied for Ukraine. Fo course, I immediately found more than the first pic I had to use....just means I will make another one with a proper conversion
