A couple of views of the armour. The starting point for these was when I borrowed a spray can of Army Painter's Army Green from a friend at our club. It was brilliantly quick and provided a great staring point. I'll definitely use these sprays in the future.
There then followed some highlights and dry brushing, then some washes. On the pictures, the Firefly at the top left was washed with soft tone, the other Sherman remains without a wash at this stage. The bren carrier was given a black wash and turned out a bit too dark. The Stuart had a mix of tones. I reckon the soft tone was best and I'll use it on the other Sherman. I'll probably add a bit of black shade to line hatches and the like, just to give a bit more depth.
The transfers went on. The Firefly is intended as the Scots Greys of 4th Armoured Brigade, the Sherman as the Fife and Forfar Yeomanry, the Stuart as the recce units of 11th Armoured Division and the bren carrier as the Black Watch in the 51st Highland Division.
And a couple of shots of the infantry. At this stage they just have an airbrushed coat of Vallejo brown green. I then quickly splashed some green on the helmets. This would allow the figures to be used in game without looking too stark.
And another brighter shot. The chap in the blue at the bottom is the RAF forward observer and the blue was a first try at getting a decent base for the RAF blue.
