28mm Napoleonic Imperial Guard Chasseurs a Pied

These are by Foundry Miniatures. I haven't included the standard/musician base as I'm currently looking for the appropriate flag to go with them. These particular models in poses shown are now discontinued I think, which is how I picked them up cheap. Hopefully I'll be able to use them in one of our upcoming club games.

German Pak 40 and Crew

This is the Pak 40 and Waffen SS crew I bought from the Derby Wargames show last week. It's a nice set, available from Blitz/Battlefield Miniatures in 20mm ( I also purchased a mini-spray gun a few days ago with the hope of doing the camouflage, but I'm finding it quite hard going. I'll probably check online and see if there are any tutorials - or if anyone can recommend a few tips here? Basically it's about narrowing the spray to cover 20mm or 15mm armour in small patches. I keep blasting the damn models and smothering them. Tried looking on the FoW website tips section, but no luck. Anyway, as you can see from the pics I decided to revert back to just hand painting the camo for now.

Waffen SS Infantry - 20mm

Picked up a company of Waffen SS (20mm Blitz Miniatures) from Derby Wargames show last weekend. Have decided to get back to a bit of WW2 gaming after so many Panzermarsche! games at the club - and me having no figures in that scale. Anyway, they're proving enjoyable to paint and are a nice break from the bucketloads of Russian 15mm SYW I've done in the last few weeks.
