Painting & Modeling

Afghan fighters in progress


My latest project is some Afghan opponents to my Cold War Soviets. These figures are from Elhiem and Sandsmodels. Even though they are quite different in style – elhiem is very naturalistic with realistic proportions, sands models are more chunky and stylised – they seem to mix quite well.

This is a very early stage in the painting, with most of the main cloth colours blocked in. Next the rest of the main colours – faces, guns, shoes – and then the dip and highlights. And then bases. I will be busy, as this bunch is supposed to have it’s day of glory next week, when we I need to design a couple of small Force on Force scenarios set in the Afghan green zone in 1984.
