Who doesn't love German tanks! This kit from PSC is a good price, easy to assemble and you get two tanks in the box with all the extra bits you may want like a tank commander.
I primed the models with grey then base coated them with Middlestone.
Next was a heavy wash of 60/40 brown/black.
I painted my camouflage in the same tried and tested method as all my other german models. The brown camouflage with a 50/50 mix of Middlestone and Chocolate Brown and a 70/30 Chocolate Brown and Middlestone mix for the center part of the camouflage. The green was a 50/50 mix of Reflective Green and Middlestone as a base then a 70/30 mix of Reflective Green and Middlestone for the center of the camouflage.
I need to drybrush the armour again to bring out the detail then finish of the tracks and other bits.
stay tuned for the finished model.

More 20mm WW2 on my hobby table. This time in the form of the German Nebelwerfer from Italeri, lets be honest how can you not include these awesome rocket launchers in your army.
I started off with a grey primer followed by a base coat of Vallejo colours like uniform grey for the trousers, reflective green for the helmets and the rest with GW colours that are a close match for the jackets.
The Nebelwerfer I painted with a base brown camouflage of a 50/50 mix of Middlestone and Chocolate Brown and a 70/30 Chocolate Brown and Middlestone mix for the center part of the camouflage. The green was a 50/50 mix of Reflective Green and Middlestone as a base then a 70/30 mix of Reflective Green and Middlestone for the center of the camouflage.
Finished off the base with oregano and dried parsley after gluing ground black pepper as the ground.
Once dry I covered the models in a heavy wash of 60/40 Brown / Black to add shading. Added a few highlights and they were done.
Next up the finished model.

I used a can of PSC Spray paint, German Dunkelgelb, for the base colour because I only had a little left in the can and didn't want to waste it.
Then I used GW Tallarn Sand to paint the sand and Karak Stone for the pillars.
Next I used the base colours of Tallarn Sand and Karak Stone to drybrush the sand and pillars respectively to add highlights.
Stay tuned for the finished product.

When I attended the Salute event last year I picked up some very nice, inexpensive resin terrain pieces. The moment I saw them I knew they would be perfect for a number of different genres but most of all they would go with the upcoming Conan board game from Monolith. I was one of the very first backers and just loved the terrain prospects the game offered.
I decided to do a small test piece for a Khemi desert type board using these ruins. I cut out some rough shapes from hardboard and glued down my pieces with Gorilla Glue (if you are thinking of this please be aware that it expands as it dries and I will not be using it again).
I then added some unevenness to the surface with greenstuff so it would not be perfectly level, also to hide the glue that was protruding from the sides of the pillars.
Next was to cover the base with some sand.
Next for the painting!

Here are the finished models.
Overall one of the easiest kits to get to a good table top standard I have completed.
Other than the addition of a tank commander there is nothing to add to this kit. Well done Armourfast.
