[Deathball]
Gaming Board

I own the wood playing board for Dreadball, which still awaits painting. I want to do a run down arena, with a lot of rust. Here is my first test piece, where I gave the salt method my first try.

I sprayed the piece Vallejo Air Model Rust. Then I applied water in selected spots and sprinkled salt over it. This was left to dry.

I sprayed two coats of silver, Vallejo Air Gun Grey and then a lighter code of Vallejo Steel.

The last step was to rubb off the salt.

I am quite please with the result, the final piece needs to be more detailed, with field markings etc. painted on, but the rust effect is very good I think.

Insurgents

Ready based and primed - awaiting some colour.

As a last thought before priming, I removed the cargo pockets of about 1/4 - 1/3 of the model's pants, these will be painted as 'civilian' clothing.

Example:

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,

Insurgents

I started to de-flash insurgents from Rebel Miniatures.

Insurgents - Army Renegades

I painted the last group of renegades:

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.

Second batch of the army renegades are done:

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.
