Test Miniature

Finally I am feeling like normal human again after being sick for the past week. Here we have after a long delay the pictures of the paint scheme I am going to use on my NAC platoon. This is the orbital artillery observer from my platoon HQ. The paint scheme is a fairly simple one Vallejo Iraqi Sand for the uniforms and Testors Model master Israeli armor sand for the armor. I was going to use a camoflauge scheme on the uniform but I thought honestly it looks better with out one and it will be a lot quicker to paint each miniature by not adding another painting step to each figure. so without further ado here are the pictures.

So I had just finished applying a layer of Testor's dullcote to to seal this miniature. A friend of mine who plays Warhammer 40k has just come over to hang out for a bit he sees this completed miniature and exclaims "Hey its a 15mm imperial guard figure." I don't play 40K (I do own some Orks you can see a box of them under this figure) so the paint scheme similarity was unintentional but I am sure the comparisons will be made. I like the colors though and I think it works well on these miniatures.

Still sick

I am sorry I have not posted pictures yet. I am still under the weather. I have finished my test miniature I just have not felt like setting up my photo box to take pictures. I swear I will try to tomorrow. I'm off to take some more Nyquil and head back to bed.

I'm still here

I have not forgotten this project. I have been sick as a dog since this past weekend. I have not accomplised much as a result. I have cleaned up, primed, and done the intial basing of my platoon. I am almost done with my test miniature and I should be able to finish him tonight. I will post pictures of it tomorrow.
