How to Speed Paint the New Honey Stuart from Battlefront

By Ry

I’m back and I have managed to get my hands on one of the new Plastic Honey tanks from Battlefront. With all the new version 4 kits on the way and a pile of Team Yankee that stands higher than me. It’s time to look at quick ways to get the new releases on the table as quick as possible. Not to mention that they are just 5 points for a troop of 3 tanks and to fill a full squadron you’re going to need 3 boxes for 27 points (did I type that… oops)

Lists We Play: LRDG

Lists We Play: LRDG

By Ken Snell

Attached is my history piece I put together for the EW GT in 2013. I played a LRDG mechanised company (not very successfully), but it was great fun.

The most interesting game was with Adam Langsam in which the LRDG faced an armoured train for the first time…

For this piece I grabbed a couple of books and found a set of patrol orders that I changed to suit FoW – you will note that key pieces of FoW information is weaved into the orders throughout.

The names of the personnel are real – B Squadron (with Commando and SAS troops) departed Siwa Oasis on a 2,000km odyssey to attack El Agheila airstrip – and then had their wounded evacuated from Landing Strip 125.

Enjoy

Now….to start on the figures.

VMC 886 Green Grey for the shoes…..if I go over the black shoes in grey….they don’t look like they’ve just been fitted at a shoe store.

VMC 921 British Uniform now for the pants and all figures.

Again….I’m trying to leave the cracks and crevices black and just paint the raised surfaces.

I don’t know about you….but as I get older and progress through my hobby I get better at painting figures. It gets to a point where you look back at what you painted when you started and it’s so bad that you don’t want to take it out of the case anymore. This 25 Pounder Battery is such a case. I bought and painted them about 6 years ago and don’t even want to look at them anymore. As a result I’ve decided to re-do them and give them a…. extreme makeover.

Please note that David uses a mix range of paints, to make it easier for the reader all paints have be matched to the Vallejo Model Color.
