Back of Beyond Expedition [26]

Not a lot to report today as I've been otherwise engaged with workload issues, so have had little time to get any painting done this evening. I have, however, sorted out the barrels on the truck with a judicious layer of GW Blood Red wetbrushed over the offending bits. I've also added a couple of spare decals from a Company B sheet, just to make them look a little less dull.

I have also undercoated the Garford Putilov armoured lorry with the usual GW Matt Black spray. I'm thinking of giving it the tried and tested Foundry Phlegm Green wet / dry brush approach but perhaps with a bit of a funky camouflage finish, so that it's a bit more colourful. This sand and green ripple effect is what I might try, if I can summon up the courage to have a go.

I'm keen to wrap this project up in the next week or so as it's taken up enough time already, which is at a bit of a premium at the moment. I'm also getting itchy fingers and want to move on to one or two quick mini-projects that I can finish off in a couple of days each, just as a form of refreshment rather than anything too serious. I have a couple of ideas for this already but need to dig out the relevant stuff to check what I've got.
