French Armour

Been a slow month but today I finally finished up a trio of French tanks. These tanks are all 28mm models from Warlord Games. First up is a pair of Somua S35.
Next is a Char D1 infantry tank.
I'm going to be taking a break from World War 2 to work on my Martians for my MayDay game. I'd like to get these all finished by the end of the February. I've got a dozen tripods and about 2 dozen drones to do up. And I've got to start this bad boy:
A 15mm land ironclad next to a 28mm tank. 

It'll probably be a couple months before I actually get it done as I'm going to do some airbrush work on it and I'm just waiting for a friend of mine to show me how to use it.

Lately I have been getting a pile of board gaming in including some new ones: Urban Sprawl and Battle Line from GMT and Eminent Domain from Tasty Minstrel Games. I've already played 1/6th of what I played last year! 

Till next time.


  1. French tanks look superb!

    But the land iron clad? Holy crap!!! What a monster!

  2. The French tanks are superb. What colors did you decide on for the camo design?

  3. I've found the Flames of War site to be a huge help for painting my French. All my colours are Vallejo. For the vehicles/guns I've gone with a base coat of Gunship Green, Black Shade wash, dry brush Gunship Green, Flat Earth for camo base, Tan Yellow for light camo pattern, outline patches with German Camo Black Brown. Tracks are Black with Gunmetal Grey highlights. Give the whole piece a coat of watered down brown to make it look worn. I've used this page as a guide:

  4. Very nice indeed Scott, & thanks for that Flames of War painting guide link.This is a book I have which I've just discovered is a free download?,-1939-1940-online. I did see an Adware alert however if your looking at downloading.

    It has info on the various nations units & which equipment they had.

  5. Lovely job on the French tanks!
