Even though they are slightly larger than 1/48 dust scale it's a discrepency I can live with considering how cheap they are compared to the official building sets!
Which eBay seller did you buy them from? Love all the 1/48 models you've integrated into your collection; absolutely brilliant.
If you look on ebay under toy trains they have a lot of O Scale stuff by Plasticville that works great. Just a thought.
Happy to be of help Mgentile :)
Anyhow, Dust Warfare released, woohoo!!!
Knocked out a couple more buildings, intend to run a Private Ryan style campaign from beach to city, Church should be interesting, imagine the scene. An allied recon force take shelter from the rain on a stormy night, suddenly they are awoken by scratching at the door, groans then machine gun fire, those dastadly Axis forces have raised the zombies from the graves and are assaulting the church...FIRE AT WILL!
Two newest heroes ready for active duty too!
Ok here is a pic of the first model airbrushed. Not good pics from my Iphone but ill get the hang of it soon enough. Just wanted to get something posted for you. This is an Italeri Puma with a Quarter-Kit conversion turret.
Hey bulldog, great minis!
I want to model my heavy units similar to how you did yours. I also use an airbrush for a lot of my stuff but I can't tell from the pictures which of the small parts are blended up w/ a brush vs the airbrush. Are you priming them in a dark grey, then airbrushing the light grey on the armor plates? Then cleaning up the overspray w/ the other colors? I don't know if I need to aim for the small bits w/ the airbrush or just do an overall preshading and a top-down highlight then take a regular brush from there.
Do you have any pictures of those heavy units as wip shots?
bumping so bulldoguk can see. :)
Hi Zuggzugg, sorry no WIP shots, I work too quick for them!
You basically got it though, I undercoat in black, lay down the basic shades with the airbrush then finish everything with the hairy stick, I find the more contrasting blending when using the brush is perfect for gaming miniatures bearing in mind the distance from which you view them.
Btw FINALLY played my first Warfare game a few days ago, awesome is all I can say, keeps all the speed and simplicity of Tactics and as with all my previous Tactic games it victory literally came down to the last few actions of the last turn, fun :)
Planning a 'guns of Navarone' style game next week using my Warlord Quake cannon as the objective piece…should look nice
Not been much movement on the Dust front for me lately, busy with commission work and not much new stuff released but I found the time to complete a Platoon size force for Action Jackson and Markus,,,get ready for some epic battles!
I currently have a few boxes of zombies incoming and a bunch of SSU stuff on it's way from the US of A, includes a few boxes that haven't yet been released in the UK as I type (wouldn't be surprised if they are on the release lsit this weekend)
Also knocked up some 'glowy' destruction markers using tea lights and pillow stuffing, these literally took minutes to make and they look brilliant on the tabletop….oh how I love my battlefield bling!
Finally finished the Zombie Platoon….RUN JACKSON RUN!
This thread is just all kinds of awesome!
Some of the best Dust minis I've laid my eyes on, you've got some serious savvy with an airbrush. Keep up the good work, looking forward to seeing what else you end up doing.
All power to the Soviets!
The factories to our workers!
The land to our peasants!
Peace to our nations!
Back off the hols so decided to get stuck into some of the newer Dust stuff!
This Rattler/Cobra is a nice bit of kit, love the prop pods and exhaust cowels, can of course be used with any of your exisiting armour using the warfare army option!
First of all let me all of your work is very nice Bulldog, truly impressive! I noticed the burning vehicle effects, awesome. I am assuming you made them given your talent. Would you mind explaining how you did it? Thanks Panzersoldier.
Hi Panzer, I have created a page on my website that will be dedicated to the buildings and scenery side of Dust, it also has a quick tut on building those great destruction markers and a link (in the first box) to a small vid showing the markers in all thier flickery glory :)
Wow! Simply amazing.
You need to put these photos up on the facebook page.
