Weeks 5 & 6 progress – Strolling Down Ambush Alley

Weeks 5 & 6 progress – Strolling Down Ambush Alley

Not much time to devote to the project in the past few weeks. I bought a bag of 100 straight corks from Amazon to replace the 12 I was previously using. I now have all the insurgents blu-tacked to corks and I’ve applied the undercoat, base skin coat and added filler to the bases. I’m also going to change my approach, instead of painting groups of 12 until they are finished I’m going to pick …

Week 3 progress – Strolling Down Ambush Alley

This is just a quick update this week. I’ve finished the 2nd batch of Flytrap Factory Taliban and the 3rd batch of 12 is about 50-60% done. To speed things up I’ve cut out the highlight shade and they look fine with just the dark shade and the base shade. Mixing highlight shades of 5 or 6 colours is quite time consuming. I’ve also added some extra miniatures that have been sitting in storage – 32 Rebel …

Week 2 progress – Strolling Down Ambush Alley

Week 2 progress – Strolling Down Ambush Alley

Things are still moving, albeit a bit slower than I would like. On the workbench is the second batch of Flytrap Factory Taliban though painting is slow. I think my normal method of painting 12 at a time might not be holding up when dealing with irregular forces. The eclectic mix of colours and equipment is the problem so I think I need to at least double the batch size to make it more efficient.  I’ve …

Peter Pig 15mm moderns review

I’ve just received an order from Peter Pig of some packs from their modern AK-47 range. I had ordered a few packs of US Marines to make up a Marine squad plus a pack of hardened militia to see if they could be used as a force similar to the Afghan National Police, and finally a pack of African militia to be used as Middle Eastern insurgents. It’s been almost 20 years since I ordered from Peter Pig so …

Painting update

Painting update

Just a minor update, not had too much time to devote to painting recently. I managed to get some Poundland loot in the form of 4 Matchbox M-ATVs which work out at round about the right size for 15mm. The only thing I’ve really done to them is add a Peter Pig 50 cal HMG to the turret. I’ve decided to paint them green to mane them very generic, they will be used for modern …

Now with added moderns

Now with added moderns

First post for a while, as usual real life takes over and hobbies get pushed to the background. Whilst digging through some old boxes I found about 20 packs of Peter Pig 15mm moderns I bought about 15 or 16 years ago. I dug them out and added them to the lead pile with a view to seeing what I could use for sci-fi. Cut to a few months later and take into account my …
