ITALERI ANTI TANK OBSTACLES &WEEFRIENDS FALLSCHIRMJAGER.
Well I have had a crap day,firstly I get a bloody parking ticket then my neighbour tells me I have a bloody great chunk of rendering missing from my wall!!!!!
So back to modelling for a cheerier mood, well that and beer (many beers!!!)
I bought these dragons teeth in the new Italeri set and could not wait to use them.I had paint these weefriends paras a while back and had run out of ideas on how to base them.
So killing two birds with one stone this popped into my mind.Better than the normal wall or desert base's for a change.
I used the PVA glue and sand method and pushed the teeth into that. A quick dry brush and then on to the teeth them selves.I started by painting them Vallejo Iraqi sand, then washed them with burnt umber.Another dry brushing with medium sea grey followed by a lighter dry brush of silver grey.Then a good going over with MiG pigment concrete.
Static grass was added with a thin covering of liquid glue.I messed up by not cleaning of the extra grass before the pictures and have only just noticed it!
I really like the these weefriends figures,one of the few metal figures that are well proportioned for dios.This is a very good pose and for a change I used a layered paint style.I don't think it turned out that bad so I do not know why I don't use it more?
The uniform is straight out of an Osprey how to model Fallschirmjagers.So if any thing is wrong blame them!
