Normandy feels a little closer.

I've been working on my Sci-fi home rules mostly of late but have found some time for my little Normandy village. Any way here is the progress:

The Manor

The village, Manor and three varius country style houses.

The houses were purchased at my local flee market and are from some sort of ''Village houses of France ' thing. Well France beeing rather eclectic climate and history wise meens that the houses range from roman style tiled roofs to tall Norman slate roofs and various other thatched roofs. I tried to greenstuff some slate onto the roman tile but it looked just rong and was extreemly fidly. The hole point of bying the houses was to make my life easer so I'm just going to repaint them and hopfully the colour scheem will hide the architectural differences.
I'll be posting progress soon.

Stuff got done...

Well I never seem to get done what I want but at least it's progress.
Of late, I've been working on a paint scheme for one of my sci-fi factions. Looking for a alien planet slash urban look and I'm quite happy with the outcome.

The Old Crow models are great and I love them! I have modified them slightly to look a little more like what you see in a modern army (support turret, side armor). I find the Ground Zero Games APCs rather small to be quite honest, especially compared to Old Crow models that seem to be more what one expects the size to be. There size seems to be more on par with a Bren carrier style vehicle, so that is probably what they will end up being, some sort of armored reconnaissance vehicle. So I will be ordering some APC's from Old Crow to replace them.

I even added on some side panel armor like on a Panzer_IV or the griding on Striker,Worrior, Leclerc... and a support weapon looking for that Black hawk down feel.

Here's another shot.

And here are the Ground Zero Games APCs.

I'll be posting about some FOW scenery soon...
