Jordanian Centurions

Jordanian Centurions for 1967.

For the record, the brigade markings (on mudguards) are fictitious: I couldn't find much on the real thing outside of the Patton-equipped units, but wanted to add something nonetheless.

Most of the force I will do will be based on the Jordanian 40th Armoured Brigade equipped with M48 Pattons. However, with a few spare Centurion models I did a pair up as Jordanian vehicles; they are lovely tanks.

WiP: Soviet BA-64s

Battlefront BA-64 armoured cars, some recce for my BG Soviet forces.

Base colours and ersatz modulation: AMMO 4BO set. (1) Very dark green, (2) MiG 932 4BO Base, (3) 1:1 mix of MiG 933 and 934 4BO colours.

Below, a bit more work done applying decals, chipping, painting details, etc. One turret gunner was done with a blue pilotka in preparation for my Soviet Airborne some point.

Pin-wash and other finishing to do, but otherwise they've turning out nicely. With two other models I'm considering doing them in whitewash for winter forces.

WiP - Some Stuff

Something I'll aim to do more regularly: work in progress posts of things I'm working on. Here, a pair each of M1 57mm and M5 3" anti-tank guns for my Battlegroup US forces, plus a couple of BA-64s for my (long-delayed) Soviets. Also an Opel Blitz with 2cm Flak mounted, because I found I had one and in BG it will prove useful.

Gun barrels on the ATGs were all replaced with plastic ones carefully cut and shaved to size. I also had to scratch-build a gun shield for the 2cm Flak that, given my poor scratch-building skills, did not come out too badly at all. I still have not found a decent source of replacement barrels for weapons such as the 2cm flak.

The BA-64s will be painted first I think.

A few more GD Panzergrenadiers

A few additions to the Grossdeutschland Panzergrenadiers I did a while back: a second platoon with command options, plus a few other teams.

Some support knick-knacks:

PSC Brits

Quick jobs (for me....), gaming standard really, but good enough. Based in pairs and singles for Battlegroup: 3x 10-man Rifle Sections, 5-man Command element, plus a pair each with the 2" Mortar and PIAT.

Happy New Year.
