Hello all,

Here is my entry for the Cavalry Group Build. Two AEC armoured cars and a Humber scout car of 2nd Household Cavalry Regiment, Normandy 1944. The AECs are from the Heavy Troop, D Squadron, whilst the Humber could be from any part of the regiment - but is presumably from the Liaison Troop. After a period of bright sunshine, the clouds are rolling in - it looks as though it could rain again pretty soon.





Cheers,
Phil

Inspiring work!

reminds me of what I need to do on my HQ troop.

Seeing that Humber SC reminds me that there is a need for "a Bridge too Far in 20mm miniatures", seeing michael caine hanging out of the top of a Humber SC or putting Edward Fox in a jeep are pipedreams of mine.


Not sure its realistic in 20mm but it sounds kewl.

No, it isn't. Smile My method for mucky tyres isn't exactly speedy - it grew out of not liking the effect of 'conventional' drybrushing where all the muck ends up on the treads rather than in them - but here it is anyway:

paint tyre grey (Foundry 34B Charcoal Black this time I think);

stipple Vallejo 122 (or is it 912 - it's Tan Yellow anyway) into the treads and lower tyre walls (I sometimes use a darker, earthier, colour instead);

dry-brush with Foundry 9B Boneyard (or GW Bleached Bone);

wet-brush (like dry-brushing but with a wet-ish brush) Vallejo 167 (995 German Grey) on the treads (it's a darker colour than Foundry 34B, so it looks like 'cleaner' rubber);

finish off with a very, very, light drybrush of Foundry 9B again.

This is for summer tyres which have dried mud and dust on them, and have then driven on a hard (tarmac?) surface, revealing the rubber on the treads again. It's a bit of a fag to do, but I like the effect. Of course, you can vary the colour of the mud/dust depending on where in the world you're gaming.

Those really are very nice.
Love the crews. Are they AB? I wonder if they would do for post war?

Milicast. Not particularly well detailed, but being resin, they're easy to hack about to get into tiny hatches! They paint up okay - I think! Those are the first 20mm figures I've painted in (probably) 30 years...

Although these are not US ww2 (and I normally keep my comments to those) I have to say that they are fantastic.

They are great - i love AEC's and they are two great examples. The crews also emphasis the recce aspect of the unit.

One question - where have the vehicle number decals come from - those on the turret side and the lower hull side?
Thanks
Richard
