    12th ANZAC and other TY project log

    This will be my first time posting a project log. For you rivet counters let me state up front that yes I know I am using the wrong colors and such on the ANZAC forces. Those of you with a sharp eye will see just what I'm doing and to whom I am making a small tribute to.

    The rest of my mini's for TY I do Try and keep as accurate as possible. Ok maybe not the Americans as such, I like to "Redneck" up some of the tanks and such so the platoon and company leaders will stand out better. And let's face it, we Americans love to up gun anything we can

    Below is my first Scorpion of the Queen Alexandra Squadron attached to the 12th Anzac brigade. Enjoy, more to follow.

    Good to see more Team Yankee stuff - reminds me that I still have plenty of my force left to paint.

    Sorry no desert MERDC. Trying to give tribute to a certain Colonel round these parts.

    Would love to see what you are working on.

    Will post more on Monday, at my GF house this weekend and taking a break.

    Re: 12th ANZAC and other TY project log

    Here's my first Leo 1 for the 12th Anzac. Decided to go with a regular troop to get in some practice before doing the command tank. Matter of fact I think I will do an entire platoon before the command section.

    So today got the basic color done on the hull and some shovel blades and other tools. Machine gun and uniform of the loader. Next will be the details and wash it of course. And well some good ole mud as well.

    Re: 12th ANZAC and other TY project log

    Now if you are wondering why I paint different mini's instead of all one kind, I get bored easy. I don't like painting the same thing over and over and over. Even back when I was painting my beloved IG I tried to mix it up as much as I could.

    So next to the Leo 1 is and LAV 25 for my Marines.
    Also on the table today is a Marine infantry squad, Marine M60A1, BTR60, and a Swingfire. The Swingfire is a 3D printed mini with a BF Swingfire launcher. The Leo 1 and M60A1 are PSC mini's. The rest are BF.

    Re: 12th ANZAC and other TY project log

    Ok this batch is done. No I haven't put numbers or any other decals on them yet. I'm going to wait until I have finished an entire lot before doing that. Like once I get all my LAVs done then I'll do that. Or when I get caught up on painting and am to broke to buy more

    Hoots,

    Your cracking these out at a great rate. There looking excellent at the moment. Look forward to seeing more. I like the Wombat Anti-Tank gun we usually mounted them on Land Rovers cut downs though.

    Well they are just a bit smaller than a Leman Russ. Although some of the sprues have just as many pieces. You'll also be happy to know that the Wombat is on a Land Rover chassis. How do you like the MG I added? Not exactly correct I know, but looks like something that Jenks would come up with...

    Today's work. Got the main colors on. Just the details and fiddly bits to do.
    Barrel broke off the RPK though, gravity...

    My bad I should have had a closer look. It is a cut down Land Rover.

    No worries old man.
    I do have to thank you for the information. I had no idea that it was called a Wombat, so now I can confuse my opponents or dazzle them with my intelligence!

    Got some M113s on the way and have no fear, I will up armor them in true 12th Cadian fashion.

    The Anti Tank Gun is the Wombat not the ride. Although the ride was built to carry the Gun.

    Good to know. And I will use it properly.

    Also have some PAH helos on the way for my West German force. That will give me a full Squadron ( 1 of 2 I'll have available) for them. Then I will have to get some Tornados to complete the Air Support for them.
