Badger APC for Heavy Gear Blitz

Quack!

I’ve been carrying on with my little bit of painting every evening and just finished off a Badger APC for my Western Frontier Protectorate forces in Heavy Gear Blitz.

The turret slot is magnetised but I’ve only painted one of the turret options so far.

Infantry at 1/144 (12mm) scale and Hunter trooper gear for scale.

The Badger can hold two of the infantry squads you see next to it, or four two man teams

I initially had the rear door fully functioning (this is supported by the components, with a little interior recessed detail) but I found it was tricky to preserve through the painting process so in the end I glued it shut

Next up,… an Iguana recon and electronic warfare gear I think.

Northern Mammoth strider painted!

I’ve recently been trying to stick to a habit of painting for at least 15 minutes every evening at about nine twenty. Having this time when I know I’ll be doing some painting while talking to a friend over Skype who encourages me has allowed me to get quite a few models painted up over the past few months. By far the slowest progress of these was on this model, the all metal Mammoth Strider for Heavy Gear Blitz. This is partly because it’s larger than most models I paint, but partly because it’s such a heavy miniature (it’s completely solid pewter) that I found handling it quite tricky and I was often rubbing paint off by accident.

Anyway I’m very glad it’s done and while it’s painted to a slightly lower standard than some of my models, I’m happy with how it turned out.
