CAESAR US MARINES IRAQ 2003 1/72
I thought I would start on a festive note.This was for GEM's competition,but as I didn't read the email correctly I can enter a different work, which is great because the lighting on these pictures are crap.
These are from Caesar modern US infantry, its the first time I have tried US infantry so here's how it turned out.
The figures were painted with Iraqi sand and Russian uniform green for the webbing with camo colours added.I used Brown earth and DAK tank crew highlight for the uniform cammo.
I tried to do an African/American soldier and used Brown chocolate for the skin tone.
The base was made use florists foam covered in Vallejo dark mud effect, and paint Vallejo dark sand.The door and lintel is made from plywood and the knocker(Oh err) from putty and a bit of florist wire.
The usual sand and PVC glue method for the ground.Then a shed load of weathering pigment from MiG,sand,dry mud and concrete.
The "Jersey barrier" is from GEM and a very nice bit of kit it is too.It is made from resin and you get four in a set.
Well there you go a very quick if not rushed dio.
I am pissed of about the lighting and should have waited for the sun to put his hat on.Not even photo shop can fix it.I am happy with the webbing,I managed to get the green cammo looking OK.

MERRY CHRISTMAS ONE AND ALL.
