At the moment I'm working on 15mm Celtibernian and Lusitanian Army. The miniatures are from DBA Army Pack by Corvus Belli with the addition of one blister to crate all options for both armies.
In the CB Army Pack there are enough miniatures to make:
1 2Ps (Slingers)
3 2Ps (Jevelin/Spear armed men)
6 3Aux/Wb (Sword armed)
1 4Bd (Sword armed)
The Aux/Wb/Bd figures have two shield options: round and oval. In the Lusitanian Army list some of those Aux/Wb/Bd should be based as PS, because in the army list there are 7 2PS.
I decided to buy one pack of the same Jevelin/Spear armed men that are given to make 3 2Ps in Army Pack. Thanks to that, just by buying 8 figures, I will gain the ability to field my figures as two differed Armies. I will have to check what, miniture wise, are the differences between Iberian and Celtiberian armies. I know that in game one has Aux and one Wb but if the figures are the same, it would mean that I will have 3 armies that quite different to play with. All of that just from one Army Pack supplemented by 6 figures from one figure packl. In total I should have 16 elements to paint with 7 of them being 2Ps.
On the painting table now: Soviet Engineer-Sappers. Before I paint my Fallschirmjagers I wanted to try new paints and decide on the painting style I will use. For that purpose I took my Soviet Engineer-Sappers that I bought long time ago to use in a diorama with big mecha. Their combat armour gives them that cool pulp look.
On the rather artsy picture you can see the paints I used and some figures.
I received my new order from maelstrom games: Coat d'arms paints, Forged in battle German paratroopers, Flames of War special order MG34/42 and Germans with panzerfausts. I wanted MG to add some more firepower to paratroopers and panzerfausts as a reference to sculpting my own. Because I placed my order on 3rd of February and there were Flames of War items in it I received the new 3rd edition Flames of War rulebook. I must say I'm impressed with the quality of this book and even tho I didn't wanted to play this game I might try it afterwards.
I might add some in box/blister photos later this week before I start my conversion work.
Those are the things I am now working on in my spare time:
Southern Heavy Gear mechs on custom 40mm sabot bases and WW2 15mm Soviet Engineer-Sappers.
Essex Kassite and Later Babylonian Army. The chariots are glued to their proper bases by wheels so they can be painted easily without much hustle. Chariot crews are custom ones as the figures that were in the pack did not have bows. Chariots themselves had their axles moved back to give them more historical look.
0 Gundam that had one of his joints broken. Now its glued back with a pin inside. It's a third thing that had broken in it. First was the sword handle and then the pelvis peg.
I just want to give thumbs up to Sarissa Precision. They are UK based company that make laser cut mdf terrain and bases. I ordered several packs for DBA use and some 40mm rounds. The shipping is very reasonably priced and the items are quickly sent. I'm sure I'ill make many more orders with them.
The bases and some Heavy Gear figures that I'll put on 40mm rounds using magnets.
For a joined Christmas and birthday present I got myself some Heavy Gear minis to use as 15mm near future mechs. Those that can be seen on the photo are Southern Anolis Refit units and a Black Mamba. I have updated their weapons to give them more modern (current) look. I plan on painting them in IDF colors.
