The walker I previously posted got the painting bug back in me for a bit. I have a lack of models but still a few to paint. I acquired another birthday present which was a second light walker so i quickly assembled it and under coated it (half seven in the morning spray painting confused the neighbour's) in readyness for painting on the evening. (Impending night shifts ment to scratch the painting itch I needed to do it that evening). Used standard allied green paint. For the basing I went with a more countryside feel. The other walker has an urban feel so wanted them to be different.
While building this walker I had a minor panic. Before I attached weapons I double checked the army lists. With my first walker I read the listing as there were 2 versions of the light walker the coyote and guardian. One had a medium machine gun and the other has a flame thrower. So I made my first walker up with an mmg thinking I can do the second with a flame thrower. Well turns out there are 2 versions, the American Coyote which has an mmg and the British Guardian version which has both weapons. I have a British force so want Brit walkers. Could I find the first walkers mmg no!! (Now I read army lists several times ) I assumed I would have put it in my bits box but no. After having a small tantrum I gave up. Only for the next day while searching in my terrain box I located it still on the sprue!! So that was attached to the first walker. Now all that's left is to give them names. I may attempt to free hand them or be a coward and ask my friend ☺.
I forgot to mention I also recieved my copy of the 2nd konflict 47 book resurgence plus a special mini. A Japanese soldier whose ghost suit used rift technology allows him to walk through walls. The mini looks fantastic the soldier being between a wall.
I've started painting this one but not finished yet. I also had the Churchill model I got with the operation sea lion book. So this model was next up.
Churchill's suit was difficult as I wanted a black suit. I find black a nightmare to paint. I wanted a pin stripe suit but I gave up lacking the skill and thin enough brush.
That's it for now. Have a good one folks
