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)

Soviet Tank Killer Company box set

By Ben

Here is one of my painting jobs. Three boxes of Su 85M’s!

SU85M These are going to be painted up in straight green, green and tan and blizzard snow cam. Of course I will be doing it with spray cans, blu tac and a brush.

 

 

imageThe miniatures are crisp and the lines sharp. They go together without difficulty. There is effectively five models of SU you can put together from these sprue. imageThat’s great value.

 

 

However, this unfortunately leaves a lot of excess. But some of these extra bits are very useful.

PART 2

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.

How to Paint an A7V tank GGBX01 Battlefront

Well I was planning to enter my A7V’s in the Battlefront Great War Painting Competition but could only get my Stoss Platoon ready in time.

For me the A7V’s were the first items built from the great box set Biltz’s Battlegroup (GGEAB1) and took about 2 minutes to clean-up ready for the painting table.

After spending far too much time on google images looking at A7V’s it was time to start.

Check out the finished result.

The Lazy Painter Guide to Winter Weathering

I love this kind of job. It’s very effective but so easy. It’s just washing, dry brushing and picking out the detail.

Here is the example I’m going to use:

imageI always wash, clean and assemble all of my work before painting it. This saves time, ensures that the miniature is firmly assembled and it means I don’t have to come back and clean up glue damage on the fully painted model afterwards.

Boots are base coated in Dark Brown.

PART 1 US Armoured Infantry – Step by Step Painting Guide

Someone has recently asked me for a step by step painting guide. I hope this is of assistance. I’m doing the 3rd Late War US Armoured Platoon for Wazza’s Army. I believe my method might be a bit different to others….I start by simply basing the unpainted figures on the etched bases according to the Platoon diagram. I try to get the mix of Rifles, MG’s and SMG’s as per the diagram. I then use the normal Polly filler to fill the bases and cover over the Figure stands. A base nearly filled with Polly filler. I use my hobby knife or anything else that is flat. Continue reading

Lazy painters guide to German Camouflage

By Ben

So you don’t own an airbrush?

Neither do I. So how do you get that field sprayed look?

You don’t. Not all German vehicles were so lucky to make it to an engineer’s unit. Many units were hand brushed.

Here are some historical cams that you can brush too:

I’ve added some historical pictures to show where my designs come from.
