#6MMRPC update: Moar jeeps!

Continuing to make the most of working on a small number of mini's as well as the motivation from the challenge starting (and everyone's kind comments).

Tonight I spent a lot of time putting flight peg toppers on my Full Thrust ships and getting the decals on the jeeps:



The text needs tidied up a bit!

The signpost is to be part of the little diorama with the MP's and their jeep. It's based on these two photo's:

  2. Looking good. That red cross decal looks great. A little weathering would really blend it in. Are these for flames of war?

    1. Thanks Cameron - the weathering aspect is still a black art to me. Not something I've been able to get my head around. Any ideas welcome! The ambulance jeep is for Battlegroup Overlord, the MP jeep is just because I wanted to do one (a close friend is ex-RMP). They will be little diorama pieces for my FoW army though.

  3. Oh, lovely!

    Can I presume that both sides get to shoot at the Redcaps?

    1. :) I'll probably just use them as a marker in scenarios to show where the reserves are coming in!

  4. Decals always make brit vehicles look better seeing as they are mostly otherwise boring green.

    The signposts are a nice touch mate.

    1. I toned them down a good bit after this as well, a light dry brush of the green and then some soft tone wash on them. Really didn't know whether to leave the stretchers off the bonnet of the ambulance jeep or not, really like the Red Cross.
