Bolt Action German Platoon Infantry Finished

Well, after playing another game of Deadzone against the wife (A.A.R. coming up in the next couple of days) I looked around and realized that I've been letting the painting slip a little even though I've finally got that casual roster I've been chasing (although there's another 2 week holiday block next week I'm covering {no rest for the wicked :) }). The hundreds of minis on there way from the various kickstarters that are looking at being shipped in the next couple of months may possible be a factor as well. I'm determined not to let the unpainted pile continue to grow larger than the painted without at least putting up a fight.

So I thought "Right let's clear what's on the table". Unfortunately I'm unable to completely finish my platoon off (Need to buy a couple of colours for the tanks), the infantry were well within my reach. I'm becoming more comfortable with basing now and decided to play with a few different materials this time. My Foldio photo studio (yet another kickstarter) arrived in the post as well so I took the opportunity to pull it out and have a play with it also. Really make a difference to the shots, although I'll still need to play with it a bit. I manage to completely cancel the L.E.D.s with the flash once or twice.

I've got the Hetzer still to finished from the box set along with the PaK 40 75mm anti-tank gun still to assemble and paint, as well as the Tiger II kit I bought which while it's possible a little large to be supporting a single platoon.... come on it's a freakin Tiger II.

All and all I'm happy with the way my painting is improving. Gotta work a little more on the eye's though.
