Flames of War - V1 Flying Bomb

Next on my list to paint was my V1 Flying Bomb with Launch Pad. I started out with a black primer for both pieces.

Then I used Field Grey for the base coat of the V1 and a equal mix of my custom Middlestone and Chocolate Brown for the Launch Ramp.

I painted the Launch ramp next with a coat of Middlestone.

I then applied a Dark Brown Wash.

Using Middlestone again I cleaned up the Ramp leaving the wash in the recesses.

Next I painted the camouflage. The base brown camouflage was 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.

Last was to finish with a drybrush of Bone or Ivory (not shown yet).

Next post, painting the V1.



  1. Looks very good. We just happen to be painting up the same open fire box set on 50mm game room at the moment. Interesting to compare notes

    1. Thanks, looked at your blog and lots of nice stuff on it.

  2. There are some FoW players where I am at but the small miniatures look really intimidating to paint. =) Hi Vitor, I have added you to my blog roll, just FYI. Oh and thanks for the kinds words about my blog.
