The Walking Dead All Out War Miniatures Game - The Figures

Played a couple of games of Mantics Walking Dead Miniatures game and it is quite good.
The Walking Dead All Out War
The games is based on the characters from the original comics rather than the TV series and the plastic figures you get are very tidy! Here's a shot of Rick Grimes.

20mm Falklands Scimitar Part4 Markings

I'm now on to the vexed question of markings, I initially thought of the standard number plates and markings for the Blues and Royals, here's a nice photo of Scimitar 23 Charlie.


This photo is on Ascension island on route south, and I'd ordered some of the Kingfisher decals, this photo is the landrover sheet but you get the idea.


On further digging it appears that the guys painted out the markings and insignia prior to operations for obvious reasons.



So the question to you folks is should I leave the insignia/markings off (Historically accurate) or should I put them on (Looks Nicer) ? Thoughts?  Dougie

20mm Falklands Scimitar Part3

Well I've applied the camo scheme using Ammo by Mig  and Vallejo Model Air acrylics. Its had a basic modulation, sometimes difficult to see on the photos but it is there! The 2 colour camo is fairly straight forward, the base green was modulated on first, I then added the blutak masks and sprayed the black and modulated it as well. Dougie

Green modulated on , I've used 3 shades

Blu Tak masked added

Black modulated on

Blu Tak removed

Once the paints on you can see the roughness of the casting, its not ideal but I'll hopefully get away with it once its completed!
