Back on Track

I managed to get a base coat of 50:50 GW Knarloc Green / Foundry Phlegm Green Shade on all of the remaining ARVN vehicles, except the field guns, this afternoon. I've decided to blitz the ARVN APC's and Tanks in one go otherwise I'll not get them finished by half term, which starts on the 13th February. I'm going to try to get the second drybrush coat done this evening if I can squeeze it in.

I've also given the bases of the finished stands a light drybrush highlight of GW Bleached Bone following the sage advice of the chaps over on the CWC Forum. It's definately 'lifted' the tone of the bases from red to orange, which is what I was after in the first place. Now all I have to do is add some static grass, foliage etc to finish the bases off. Before I dive in at the deep end with this I'm going to try out a couple of different approaches on some 50 x 50mm bases which I will subsquently use as the stands for the F5A fighters, if they turn out OK.

Finally, I managed to pick up a copy of the AK47 supplement for the old second edition rules today on Ebay. I've borrowed a copy of the supplement before to check out the rules for snipers, rockets, cavalry and the like but, as I'm not into gaming Lebanon, the rest of the book remained unread. However, as it's now out of print I thought I'd snatch up a copy! I'm sure it'll be of use for some extra add ons in future games of AK47, even if the bulk of the rules aren't of interest. It only cost £1.20 plus postage too.
