Now I'm semi back, and this time it's the 88th, They are from the new FrontRank Reenforcements packs.
Truely amazing figures, I decided to paint just 4 figures, this would be 80 soldiers in the standard 1:20 scale, a good british company, that could often fall down to 60 or even less soldiers.
I also painted them quite diffrenly, I normaly semi block paint, finish the main uniform, then do the details.
This time I finished the top uniform totalt first,so jacket, lace, facings, straps ect. then the face, all 6 layers, and hat then the musket, and finnaly the trousers. I did this just to spice things up, I started to get bored with the 5 layers of trousers and 4 layers of jacket, and then all the small detail, this time I did some big clothing, then some small details, and then back to big clothing.
I also used 3 layers on the shako, I normaly only use one or mabye 2, but this time I went all out, not sure tho, it might look to grey? But mabye it just makes them look more sun bleached?
Also to make the unit look more like a 2 rank file I put them very close together to make it as thin as possible, compeard to say the French,

So another two figures this time back in PC but with out the fancy NVGs and silencers.
Not much to say, still not 100% happy with the AOR1 and 2 cammo.
But I am happy with the cammo paint on the guns.
And this is my airsoft gun as it looks now, she got a paint job, a SMR rail, EoTECH, PEQ15, grip. Still needs to add a few more things to it.

Last post was fast attack SEALs, in plate carriers and helmets, for urban fast missions, these are more long range Greenside, the figures are Force recon marines from Eureka, but I painted them as SEALs in the same AOR2 uniform as the first figs.
The rigs and backpacks are in Olive Drab.
Here are some SEALs in the AOR2(my attempt at AOR2) the AOR2 is alot like MARPATm but with out the brown spots ect. These are the SEAL TEAM 6 figs, with fancy panorama NVGs. Based on the SEALs that killed Bin Ladin. I'm not satesfied with the uniform,

I'm still alive, first I just didn't feel like painting, then a vacation. I'm now back in Oslo after spending lot of time at my girlfriend, then week and a half in Denmark and Sweden.
I'll get some pictures up of my latest figures tomorrow(battery on the camera was dead)
They are Modern Navy SEALs.
So I'm afraid you'll have to do with some life pictures for now, I know boring.
First up is my half finished Navy SEAL airsoft kit. I still need vest, a p226 pistol, more stuff for the rifle and paint the rifle.
The Uniform is the AOR2, Digital Navy cammo, The rifle is a Tokyo Mauri 416. it got an EOtech sight, PEQ15 laser unit, and a new SMR rail. the rail was a pain in the ass to get on, it was slightly to tight, so spent sevral hours with a fake dremel filing down the aluminum on the gun. I still need a magnifire, Surefire, front grip and silencer.
Gothernburg, after spending time looking at animals, there was a deluge! First real rain in months.

The dutch guards should have some lace on their soldiers, but close enough.
I did them in the apropriate red and blue, even tho I was tempted to do them in the William of Orange, yellowish and blue. But by 1704 they almost definatly used the red and blue, abit anoying. while dark blue and red is very cool mix. I wanted to keep the blue dark, so I only used the french foundry triad, I normaly add a even lighter highlight. But wanted them dark so only the triad.
I also wanted the red to be clear and rich, so I did not shade or high light it, only one color of rich red.
This was to make the red and blue contrast as much as possible.
The second WIP that I actualy painted like a month ago now. Is a bravarian unit, I did the first base long ago, and started on the command base, but got so bored, not sure why I've spent like weeks trying to finish it, got so bored I finished the whole of the prince george unit, then didn't paint, left for my girlfriend, and did the first base of the dutch guards. Now I have to finish that command base.
About two weeks ago I left to stay a long weekend with my girlfriend, he lives two hours away by train, I was plaing on staying from Thursday to Sunday, but stayed a week longer. So only came home this Sunday. The week and a half was spent in the sun, and with puppies.
My girlfiend just got two litters of Siberian Huskies. I was there for the delivery of the first litter, but not the second, so I spent weeks 3-5 with them Now, had not seen the first litter since they were one day old. Now they are bigger and well funnier, my girlfriend worked during the week, So i was puppy guardian.
I also spent a day and a half with the potential inlaws at the cabin, so some pics from that trip.
This is Lyng, a girl from the second litter, my sister is buying a puppy from my girlfriend, and I hope this is the one she gets. As I really like her.
Regular update tomorrow with first bases of two diffrent regiments for WSS
