Time flies when you are having fun :) .

I won't be touching the mech until I have finished my tank company and with that in mind, I have started work on the next three. First, I converted a bunch of pens and hair ties into some plasma Cannons:

Then I washed all the sprues and assembled what I could before I needed to spray anything:

Image

Finally, there was a break in the weather so I managed to get a single tank and all of its components, sprayed up before the can ran out of paint:

Image

From now on, I will be back to painting everything one at a time :)

Now the third tank is finished (apart from the commander and decals) and the first of the plasma-tanks is base-coated, ready for a wash:

Hopefully, the first plasma-tank will be ready for decals by the end of the week... but who knows?

Just decals to go on the first platoon... but I reckon I'll leave the decals until all the tanks are painted :) :

Here's a high quality (Windows Paint) mock-up of the markings for my tank company:

Image

I have all the decals I need for all ten tanks. The yellow shape changes for each platoon/command so there will be 3 triangles, 3 squares and 3 circles with a diamond as the company commander.

I have all the decals except the names... but I have LOTS of decals which can be altered for that... or I can just paint the names (so they are properly individual).

I needed a break from painting tanks... and to be honest, it's a bit humid for painting so I decided to build a few Halfling Snipers:

Image

This is three squads of ten, all washed, cleaned up, filled and based, ready for priming :) .

The good thing is that this means I have ticked off three boxes on my organisation chart... and three platoons now have their ten-strong sniper units :) .
