Miniature Modelling Mayhem April painting challenge finished!

This last month we had a little painting challenge going on the Miniature Modelling Mayhem facebook group in that we would pledge to paint a few (3 in my case) units to paint up in April.

My pledge was:
12cm Howitzer battery
4.7cm Anti-tank battery
4.7cm Anti-tank battery

I finished these yesterday so they are fresh of the press!


The whole gang: 2 infantry platoons, 2 anti-tank platoons and an artillery battery.







Added a Dutch flag to one guy:




I also did a tennis court as a silly terrain project.

And the first Macedonian heavy cavalryman. I'm not sure if it is a kontos he is armed with, or those would be longer?

Finished a platoon of 12cm Howitzers for my Dutch.




And they look cool with my 4 infantry platoons:

12cm Dutch artillery

For the April painting challenge I'm working on a Dutch artillery park. I converted some Romanian guns to look like the Dutch 12cm howitzer. These are them painted:


On the left we have the tiny 47mm gun the Dutch used. Apparently to good effect, knocking out 25 German armoured vehicles around Dordrecht and Rotterdam. These are from Skytrex and are pretty basic. Good thing they are small. They still need highlights and varnishing.


The crew are primed and ready to be painted..

Miniature Modelling Mayhem April painting challenge

We're having a painting challenge on our Facebook/Google+ group this month and this is what I will be painting.

Dutch guns & crew, more specifically:
- Anti-tank gun platoon (3 47mm Boehler guns)
- Anti-tank gun platoon (3 47mm Boehler guns)
- Howitzer battery (4 15cm Howitsers)

Battlefront Romanian crew, with converted Romanian howitzers and some Skytrex anti-tank guns.
The 15cm gun is a converted Romanian piece, but all I had to do is remove the pieces of gun-shield from in front of the wheels.


Standard artillery figures and company HQ blister, small conversions here and there for example a kepi for the Captain instead of more modern hat the Romanians used.


Tonight during an online Paint & Chat session where we get together using Google hangouts I will be starting on these guys properly!

Last of the Phalangites..

Finished the last of my Macedonian Pikemen! (Forged in Battle figures)



And the gang all squared up:



Glad to have finished them, but I need loads more. 2 or 3 blisters will be coming with the next kickstarter for sure.
