6MMRPC Week Ten: Leaving Las Cruces

I'm all packed up and I'll be on the road Friday for California.  Doubt I'll have anything to post next week, but you never know!

6MMRPC Week Nine: The First Transport is Away!

Sorry I'm rather late this week, I've been continuing the move prep, this time boxing all of my Armada, X-Wing, and painted Flames of War models.  We'll be leaving in one week for California!

Nothing left in the cabinets but dust!

6MMRPC Week Eight: HMG Bunker

So, I had a chance to work on those bunkers from last week a bit more and finished them as far as I can without an airbrush, which is packed in a box somewhere.  Once I get established in our new home, I can finish the gun turrets for the rest of them.
I started by leaving the gray primer color on all of the concrete area, then built up a few layers of varying grays by drybrush.  I then did any detail areas with Vallejo acrylics.  Once that was done, I used a few colors of acrylic wash from Secret Weapon and then did the ground area with washes and dry pigments before adding some static grass and tufts.
I get to count the single finished bunker towards my mountain reduction, but I'll consider the rest almost done.

Rear area with MG port and enfilade walls.
Forward area with MG port.
The two large bases can fit Panther, Panzer IV, T-34, or P-40 turrets, the smaller can fit Panzer II, or several french designs.  The large bunker is for a 5cm KwK gun.
I probably won't have much else to show for a few weeks, almost time to leave Tatooine!

6MMRPC Week Seven: Bunkers In Progress

I managed to get some work in on the bunkers, just need to do a few washes, some weathering, and some basing work still.  I should have these done by next week, minus any guns or turrets since my airbrush is all packed away.

I hate weathering concrete, it never looks right...
