This is what I got
I got some of these recently of that nice fellow Brian of The Hobbyden. They're Vickers Light Tanks from S Models, so a British tank made by a Chinese company bought from an Irishman. We're just a melting pot here.
I assembled these and they're designed as fast builds so they went together pretty quickly. There was actually stuff that came in the box that I didn't use. The box comes with a number of brass etched pieces, I left them off because to be honest, I couldn't get them to attach easily and they were very delicate, more delicate than I'm comfortable with in a wargaming model.
These were €13 per box of two and they are nice, but I think if I was doing this again, I would probably go with Frontline Wargaming resins.
We had a painting evening the other day, which was fun. Mr. E and Mr. Target dropped over. Mr. E painted some Soviet Motor Rifle troops while Mr. Target assembled a Hornby pylon from my plastic stash. Mr. Target also brought along some Rogue Trader era Orks which he very kindly passed on to me.
I got my six Vickers six tonners basecoated. The trick with that being, multiple thin coats. The first one always looks awful, but these came up OK. I'm in two minds about drybrushing a highlight on, but we shall see.
I want them to look a little bit like this
So at the moment, I have two main projects on the go, my stalled Cold War Project and my ongoing Napoleonics project.
What am I excited about painting at the moment - my BEF/Very British Civil War Tanks and possibly some Rogue Trader figures.
Which just goes to show that I can be guaranteed to want to paint whatever it is I'm not meant to be working on at the moment.
