Excellent! I've been eager to pursue this theater as well, in a grand-tactical [battn/regt] scale as well as at company level; so it will be helpful to see how you approach the terrain. I was there a few years ago in the Toscana region & took some mental notes.
Thanks Saighdear, I will be interested to see your work as well when you get it off the ground for more ideas.

I am hoping in a month or two I will get some more work done, particularly on some buildings, rocky outcrop pieces, small hills and linear bocage'esque pieces (smaller and more scrappy)

I like those, nice work. The resin tiles really lift the models.

Thanks mate - they do, they are really nice one piece resin. With a bit of a sanding down they look great!

Hi All,

Back again - I painted another tank, this time a Sherman. Sorry the pictures are not the best!

If you are interested I also have put up an after action report (also posted in the AAR section of this forum)

Nice work, I posted a comment too, but it would be nice to get some closeups of the paint job. I plan to have all my Allied vehicles redone to increase the 'dust'.

Thanks Doug - I will try and get some better pictures in the new year.

I use a couple of citadel dry paints (Sylvaneth Bark and Eldar Flesh) that I use to get a dusty effect. It's a bit subtle on the Sherman but you could definitely use more to make it more dusty or you could combine it with some mud effects (I can't remember the name, but it's a citadel textured one and then you whipe most of it off).
