Been quiet recently my son starts reception this week so been busy getting him ready and gathering all the necessary gubbins he needs.
Had a shelf sort out and my paint queue is depressingly small now
I thought I best crack on with some little projects I have in the go. So I broke out my bunker complex. It needed painting, I decided on a simple grey concrete colour for the whole thing then I can work on individual pieces. I started painting but soon got a little bored. So I checked all the pieces had a good layer of filler on and headed off to poundland. Grabbed some grey spray paint and sprayed the lot!
Now I can focus on maybe adding details to the bunker bits and corridors. Need to do some research on that.
Currently I'm working on the Amera Plastic trench section I purchased in August. Once again great quality, cut it out and spray painted green as an undercoat. My 4 and 2 year old insisted on helping so they put a few coats of brown paint on the wood sections (and other random places but they will be easily hid ha ha ha). Made my own mud paint up to add to the craters and the path along the trench.
Next up were the sandbags and wood trench lining.
Did my best to dry brush and pick out details on the bags and wood. Then found some GW but paint still in the pot so lined the trench edges with it so it looks like it was dug onto the ground and added bits to the craters as well.
Next up will be flocking (my sons favourite bit). Though I am thinking about adding boards to line the bottom of the trench.
Soon it will be my birthday (yay!) The wife and kids have ordered me a Konflict 47 walker 😃. So I shall await this to see what the base is like as I made add one of the ruined buildings that's sat in my paint queue. Probably won't get much more on model front as I'm saving Amazon vouchers for the new call of duty ☺.
At some point I need to be brave and start painting my Winston Churchill model.
