Dogs and Devils HG Schwere Aufklarungsschwadron – first 1100 + points
Well, I got this little lot finished this weekend minus the decals. I still need to pick a set up.
Having used Armypainter strongtone on the figures for shading and varnishing I then used a can of GW matt varnish (purity seal!) to bring the gloss finish down to a matt. I guess I must have picked the right day to do this and the right spray as I am really pleased with the end result.
I decided to go with GW glade grass for the static grass bases plus a bit of leftover Woodland scenics talus for the larger AT bases. I just use PVA glue and an old brush to work round the bases.
Now I need to work on the first 600 points of US 3rd infantry division so I can get a quick game in. So much to do…. and I am already started on the scenery..!
Thanks for those who are following this as the armies grow!
