I have been neglecting the blogging world lately and for that I am very, very sorry! And I really mean it as well. My life has been at "warp 10" for a couple of months now and my time has been split between work home, work for 1/72 depot and Modding on Benno's. I feel guilty as hell for not commenting on every ones work but it does not mean I am not looking!
I decided one night (with the aid of beer I might add) to challenge Thomas (another Mod on Benno's) to a duel. This might sound like a normal thing to do but for one thing, he is a bloody hell of a painter and I mean GOOD!!! We had both got our hands on the new TQD Casting commando and thought why not. A single figure on a 4x4 base. This is what I came up with.....
|The base was made using a GW base and a piece of woodland scenic plaster rock cut using a small mita block and saw.|
|The vegetation is from woodland scenic foliage set and the ground is PVA glue and sand.|
|A cracking pose, I have never seen a commando with a Vicker's K gun in this scale before.|
|I wanted to steer away from the normal Dennison smock so after a bit of research I found that in Northern Italy they used plain sand coloured smocks, which was handy for me!|
|The rest of the poses are just as good and well worth the money, Mark Dixon at CP Models will be making a few more quid out of me.|
|Well I now have got myself into some more duels and I don't think I will have quite the same luck.|
This is what I was up against a bloody great entry from Thomas,Commando duel,Cheers for the duel mate!
