Shermantastic

DSCF1834

Not quite the mass production which won the war but a couple more Shermans were delivered, above a simple drive through bushes base. Might need some extra cargo but playable as is.

DSCF1829

Regular readers might remember last week I finished a base of Germans advancing through a field of long grass, it was quite an easy effect so this week I decided to try similar for a tank, and it worked rather well. The only difference in the technique is to layer the grass which the tank chassis has flattened lower than the untouched grass either side.

DSCF1826I’ve also made an effort to make the grass at the rear really muddied up. You’ve only got to spend about a minute in the company of a tank in mud to notice just what a mud-slinger it is. This finish reflects that.
