2018’s Painted Microarmor

2018 was a marginally better year for painting miniatures. Many of them were ones I bought from av8rmongo. I completed:

  • 6 GHQ M1A2
  • 6 GHQ M2A2
  • 6 GHQ M60A3
  • 6 GHQ M106
  • 10 PFC C-in-C Leopard 2A5
  • 4 PFC C-in-C Lynx C&R
  • 1 M1A2 with Mine Plow
  • 1 M9 ACE
  • 4 M105 Deuce
  • 3 PFC C-in-C UH-60s
  • 3 Heroics and Ross UH-60s
  • 2 Heroics and Ross CH-47s
  • 9 Merkava 4
  • 6 Magach 7C

Vehicles in NATO tri-color camouflage were done with Floquil’s NATO Green as the base, overlayed with NATO Brown and NATO Black. Tracks and windows were then dry brushed with Floquil railway dark gray.  I painted the tracks in Floquil Mud and splashed the sides, front and back with the same.

The helicopters’ base was Floquil NATO Green. Windows and wheels were done with Floquil railway dark gray with exhausts in NATO Black.

The Israeli vehicles are done in an unknown Floquil color.

I got out my new macro lens and with a light box, photographed some of the miniatures. I photographed in aperture priority mode at f/16 so I could get most of each miniature in focus. I tried different exposure values to get them bright enough. With the camera settings I used and the light box, I didn’t feel the need to edit them.
