28mm sherman

Picked this up Saturday from http://www.facebook.com/TabletopNation . Which has just set up near me,great venue and handy for a game.

The Sherman is from warlord and I'm going to use it for my Canadian company when we play disposable heroes rule set. Markings are hand painted (as i didn't have the decals) and the commander is a British officer from Northstar ww2 range cut in half. Really enjoyed painting this up and made a change from 15mm tanks.

Bit more terrian

Celotex board
Carved to shape with an old kitchen knife

PVA glue and and sharps sand.

Rocky area made with vertical cuts with a knife,more of a chopping motion.

base colour,i use fence and decking paint,5L for £20.

Basecoat and cream mixed for first highlight.

More cream added to the basecoat and greys added to rocky area.

mix of three static grass.

A friend of mine (mark,http://www.mbdecorating.co.uk/index.html) saved some a couple of off cuts of celotex insulation boards from a skip. These off cuts were ideal for a ridge line that we could use not only in our Guildford court house game but other games.
