2nd Airborne squad (WIP)


Here is my second Airborne squad all primed up and ready to go. Added a Bazooka to this and some Bars. As you can see I use a white undercoat when using Army Painter. I also ordered some decals from Company B that I'm pretty excited to see how they add to the miniatures.

  1. Nice squad but are those transfers the ones they put on the arm, the 101st and the 82nd arm patch, would like to see those.

  2. I have used Company B decals for the Airborne, the go on very nicely so do the grade stripes. I have found the helmet decals to be over sized especially for the Germans.

  3. I have to admit the Artizan Paras are growing on me.

    Was there much to clean up with the casting?

    I have the Bolt Action US Paras. The sculpting is fantastic as is most of the casting.

    Some of the Bolt Action Paras (.30 Cal MG Loader) have a lot of cleaning up to do on certain parts of the model :P

    Don't get me wrong the models are fantastic but the Artizan look just as nice. Especially with a nice paint job :)

    Thanks for sharing.

    Yes, I purchased the decals for arm and helmet patches. Hopefully they will arrive before I'm finished with this squad.

    @Thom
    I hope the airborne helmet patches are not to big as that would be a shame.

    @Allan and Carmen
    I've personally had very little flash on my Artizan miniatures and found cleaning them to be quite quick and so just another reason I give them top marks.

    Cheers

  6. Oh I am really looking forward to this regiment! Anyway, I prefer BAM too, but that is just a matter of taste! However, I am not keen on using BARs in Airborne squads as I thought they were never equiped with them.
