Crossfire Kiwis Complete

Good evening,

Here they all are. Two full infantry companies with mortar (including FOs) and HMG support (and a squad of SMG infantry for each), as well as six Shermans (two 75's, a 76, a 105 and two Fireflies - painted as Kiwi tanks for the Italian campaign by Andy Gorman), two Company Commanders, six Platoon Commanders and eight suppression markers. That'll do for the time being.




Just gotta get me back that Jug (Thunderbolt) from Andy.

In the meantime I have begun re-basing Jack's Naps - this time on 60mm by 30mm bases, not the 60 by 20s that I thought they should be on.

  3. Hey Nick, great job on your Kiwis. What type of flock have you used on those bases? & When are they going into battle?
    Looks like you had a couple of Napoleonic peeling paint casualties in the re-basing process?

  6. Hey Jack

    Cheers Bro. I based them with a brown undercoat, sand highlighted with a lighter brown and then flock applied in patches. Looks better in the flesh (plastic) than these photos would suggest. Less 'clumpy'.

    I'm planning to break 'em out onto the battle field in the school hols. 9 days and counting!

    Yes, there was a little re-basing damage, but it'll touch up pretty easy.

    They look fantastic all lined up thusly!

    Cheers, and thanks muchly again,

    Nick
