I can't believe we have finished the second month of the challenge already. For this month I painted the core of the army, the two infantry platoons with Ram Kangaroo transports and some Heavy Mortars. This gives me a 1250pts army to play some games (hoping to get an AAR or two in very soon).
here. I won't spend too much time talking about them here as I have already covered them in the other post. I will say painting tartan was surprisingly fun (not fun enough to do a whole platoon with tartan or anything silly like that mind). It didn't take long to find a pattern I liked the look of, I ended up choosing dark blue as it matched the logo of the 51st Highland Division.
Once they were done I moved onto the Kangaroos. I was looking forward to these as I really want to use them in a few games (just seems wrong being able to time attack with them!). I based the markings from the Kangaroo at Bovington Tank Museum just swapping the number and the Bull unit icons position for personally aesthetic reasons.
I tried something different from my normally painting style and painted the inner section black, I hoped it would help create the idea of space for with the otherwise tightly packed crew models. I'm not 100% sure it worked, but I feel it's a little late to go back change it now.
