Insurgents

I cleaned all miniatures of flash and glued them to their bases.

Next step is to make the bases nice by hiding the integral bases of the minis. Then they are ready to be painted,

Here is the complete bunch of renegades. They are organized into two squads of 10, each with 2 RPGs and one LMG. They are lead by an officer, accompagnied by an RTO. Additionally, a sniper is suporting them.

Wehrmacht, motorisierter Aufklärungszug

I started to work on a new project during my lunch breaks. Well, actually it is a quite old poject dating back to 2006... but I got ... let's say... sidetracked... several times... but good things come to those who wait.

This is a motorized reconnaissance platoon, mounted on motorbikes and motorbikes with side cars. The Leutnant is riding in a Kübelwagen.

The first smaller batch of models wears the M36 field blouse (greener tone than the later field grey and dark green collars) and a mix of M36 (stone grey) and M40 Trousers (field grey).

The rest will wear the M40 field blouse and M40 trousers, all totally in field grey.

Insurgents - Army Renegades

Having finished the Marine squad, I need some opponents for them; these will be insurgents. The first batch is from Peter Pig's Arab/PLO range. These are renegades from the army, which changed allegiances and turned over to the insurgent's cause.
