Busy beaver!!!!!

Greetings and salutations!!!
I have been on something of a painting kick at the moment, which might have something to do with the fact my days of lording it round the home as "Man of the Manor" are coming to an end. Back into the daily grind for me which means my painting time will be scarce.
Started off with my Bolt Action Italian Paras, These guys were so much fun to paint. The sculpts were lovely and i think they turned out alright. Next up i smashed out my Davion mechs that ive been sitting on for soooooo long. This may have been because of the new Battletech game which has tickled my Battletech fetish with all kinds of hnnnnggggggg. Anyway thats all for now, hope you like my work.

Cheers
Matt

Bolt Action Italians

Have not posted for a while but i have indeed been busy. Finished  my first big batch of Italian infantry and 2 supporting armoured units. The Autoblinda i actually had to redo until settling on this finished product. The camo originally went for was terribad. Pretty happy with how it all turned out. Should be an attractive force on the table. All i have left to paint is a truck and 2 more blobs of infantry.

Cheers

Captain Corelli

Greetings,
Just finished my Italian LT for Bolt Action. Got inspiration from the film Captain Crelli's Mandolin. I think its a great film and under rated. Used the Warlord Lt from the command back and green stuffed his Mandolin bag on.

Cheers

Fury!


Greetings!
New project time. Starting 28mm WW2 and have chosen to do US army, What better way to start an army by doing a tank? As the title suggest i am doing Fury from Holliwoods film of the same name. Movie cops alot of flack from the rivet counters but from an ex tanky i give it a thumbs up.

Used the Rubicon 1/56 Sherman kit which was a dream to build. Stowage is from the Rubicon and Warlord stowage kits, some string, plastic card and sticks from the yard. I have decals incoming from Company B.

Cheers
Matt

Gladiator Exhibit

Greetings,
On my recent trip North to visit family i had the chance to check out Queensland Museums Gladiator exhibit. $55 AUD family entry for what was a pretty decent display. Kids loved seeing it too.
Wont ramble too much but took pics of each of the displays, apologies for the reflections in some.
Hopefully at some stage this year ill get to build my own Ludus.

Cheers
Matt
