Good chum Colin kindly gifted me these pieces for my recent birthday. They’re from Paul’s Modelling Workshop and highly recommended.

Originally they were going to be painted in the more arid desert style suitable for our WW2 North African games but I decided to paint them for use in our Crete, Sicily and Italian games instead. Recipe is Americana Honey Brown, followed by highlights of VMC Tan Yellow, VMC Dark Sand and Foundry Boneyard light.

Here’s a closer pic.

Thanks for looking

Legion Priority Supplies

Here are the moisture vaporators, computer terminals and crates from the Priority Supplies boxed set

The vaporators and crates were primed in grey then given a heavy dry brush of VMC Stone Grey followed by a wash of GW Agrax. When completely dry, highlight with VMC Stone Grey then pick out the edges using any light, pale grey such as Foundry Austrian White shade. A few dabs of GW Typhus Corrosion completes the weather worn look.

The terminals and the larger crate were even easier! Black spray followed by the Foundry Charcoal palette. The buttons are simply dots of very light grey followed by red, green, yellow, etc.

In games these items can be used as objective markers (there are several mission cards that require such features) or just as suitably atmospheric scenery.
