ITALERI ANTI TANK OBSTACLES PART II,
This is part II of the new Italeri obstacles as promised.
Yes I know the metal traps belong on a beach but I could not wait and that's for the next dio anyway.
The figure is from my mate Cole in the states and he is from the Caesar WWII US Infantry set 2,
I had no plans for this base or figure for this era painted, so when this fellow turned up in the post,(ready painted) it was a god send.So a big thanks Cole I am working on something for you in a way of thanks.
I should have have cut one of the dragons teeth up and placed them on the edges to make it look a bit more even, but I was in a rush (again) and wanted to get it posted.
The metal traps are in two pieces and went together very well and are the best looking type of trap I have seen.
I have been getting into Revell acrylics lately, because for larger jobs it is cheaper and gives a better finish.Vallejo metal paint does not give a good finish compared to Revell.
I used iron/steel colour, with a black Vallejo wash.
A good brushing of a mix of MiG standard rust and black smoke for the rusting.
This German staff officer is from Caesar German army with greatcoats, He is screaming Rommel to me and I might have to visit Battalions and hordes and get myself another one.Give him a black leather trench coat over looking the Atlantic wall.
The other dragons teeth had just a medium sea grey, then MiG pigment concrete and dry brushed with silver grey.

I WISH YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM RICH,CLAIRE, & ALEX.
