Hey guys, winner Dave here.
One of my new years resolutions was to do a tank company and you may remember Ben doing a poll about which mid war army he should collect next.
Well, I was pleased when the result was Finnish infantry as that meant I could make the Russian tank list for myself.
Also, if you follow our blog regularly you'll know Ben and Adam are currently engaged in a tale of two winter gamers. I would have loved to be included in this project, but unfortunately my pocket money just doesn't stretch that far.
Hence, my own little parody...
I stopped being interested in 40k, when finecast came out, quite frankly I think it sucks and is quite expensive, plus our interest in all things flames of war took off. However I have a few odds and ends knocking around and thought it was time I put them to good use. Also I kinda miss painting the larger scale brightly colour models that are 40k.
Here's what I did...
I painted one of these...
This gave me the perfect opportunity to get some more airbrushing time as I'm still learning to use it.
Then I stuck it on eBay to see how it would do.
Almost straight away I had requests from people to paint more...which was awesome and I ended up with my first commission.
Which looks like this.
My client seemed happy, I got paid and the first batch sold on eBay no problems so I went a head and bought this...
10 Matildas and 10 T-70s means a happy winner Dave.
I'm naturally very please with how things worked out and I still have another of those aegis lines to paint and sell.
coming up...reviews of Zvezda's T-70 and Matilda II
Until then keep on gaming and keep it cheap
