Gunners modern thread, 28mm Marines

Post by Gunner Dunbar » Mon Jun 01, 2015 2:54 pm

Hi guys, have finished these Selous Scouts from Eureka Miniatures, this is the first time I have painted anything from the Rhodesian wars, and it was a lot of fun, I now have a new interest in that conflict, the figures themselves are brilliant, I couldn't recommend them more, all comments welcome.

Hi Guys, some more 28mm modern Aussies finished on commissions, these are Skirmish Sangin figures, pretty nice figures, the metal is a little soft and the Styers barrels are easily bent, I like these a little more than the Empress miniatures Aussies, but they are both nice.

Awesome job, especially the Selous Scouts. If I showed the old man it would bring a tear to his eye :)

Hi guys

Finished 2 Aussie Bushmasters, these are resin models, not a big fan of resin, these were so so, a few bubbles and some warped areas, good as wargaming models, all comments welcome.

Hi guys

Some Taliban insurgents finished, not sure who makes them, a couple of different companies I believe, but they have a lot of character, all comments welcome.

Hi guys

Here are the companions to the Taliban in the previous post, this is the 3rd lot of modern Diggers I have done, I wasn't to happy with my last batch, these are better, getting pretty comfortable with them now, all comments welcome.

Hi guys

Finished some Spectre miniatures spec ops figures, in a motley mixed camo with some solid colours look, the Spectre minis are nice poses with a realistic look, but they have the most fragile barrels I have seen in 28mm, actually, any scale, I can't remember the last time I broke a barrel painting figures, (none in the last year anyway), however 2 broke during this commission, and I fear several more will break during game handling, for this reason alone I cannot recommend them.

Hi guys

I will be painting a couple of Indochina M24s next week, and whilst researching I realised I didn't post pics of the last batch, which is a shame as they turned out nice, so here they are, some French paras and NVA for the indochina war, the M24 is a resin warlord model, all comments welcome.

Hi guys

Some 28mm skirmish sangin Aussies and Taliban finished, figs are nice, pretty accurate looking Aussies, I enjoyed painting these guys, I have another modern batch on the desk and am enjoying the change, all comments welcome.

Hi guys

Finished these 28mm Rangers, I believe these are Empress figs, very crisp detail, lovely figures, this is my first attempt at multicam, pretty happy with it, but I will get better after a few more times, might be a reason to start my long stashed zombie projects, 15mm and 28mm. Sorry about the crappy pics, its really overcast today, and some pics are blurry from shaking hands I think, All comments welcome.

Very nice brushwork!

Love the Aussies in Multi-cam.

Hope Eureka releases their 28mm Aussies soon as I have seen preview casts(?) from a mate and they look amazing!

Hi guys

Some 15mm modern Aussies finished, these figs are from Eureka miniatures, and I have to say, they are really nice, the equipment and weapons are very well done, nice natural poses, a little chunky, but it actually suits them, over all very nice, all comments welcome.

They look great - I had a blast painting mine up, and it was easier that I expected with the DCPU.

I can't bring myself to try painting the Bushmaster and LAV 25 to go with them though. I think I will make a dog's breakfast out of them if I do.

Hi guys

Some 28mm US Marines finished, these lovely figures are from Eureka Miniatures, great sculpts, good poses, and the anatomy is pretty spot on, first time I have painted Marine MARPAT camo, the trick with any camo, is does it look realistic from 2 foot away, and these turned out great, all comments welcome.

GD, Was wondering if you could do me a favour and let me know what colours, especially the base colour for the Selous Scouts and RAR. My father was in that war and I got hold of some figures. Hope to get the to look sort of like they did.
Regards
Ross

Hi mate

Wow, that was 2 years ago, time has flown by, I'm thinking it was Vallejo Khaki, I often mix colour to get what I want, so it's possible it might have a touch of Iraqi sand in it as well.
