TERRAIN - Oil Tanks

Another project that has been sat around on or near the painting table was a bag of 8 Oil Tanks (2 different types, 4 of each). Not the greatest moulds but a few bits of detail. After a bit of thought about the best way to paint them I decided on trying to sponge paint them with different shades of grey so after a black primer I used Grey Slate for the main sponge coat, followed by Platinum and then a final highlight with Grey Hints. All tester pots from B&Q.

Started work on some of the terrain pieces we need for the big Cold War Commanders Arctic Strike weekend later this year. First up is a hotel inspired by the one at Bodo, Norway. I can't remember which show I got this at, I think it was Triples a few years ago and not sure on the manufacturer either. J R Miniatures?

As you have probably seen the Cold War Commanders down in Slimbridge held a couple of games to kick off the Arctic Strike theme to this years games. Mark F has very kindly sent me some of the photos of the event and for now I will just post them here for everyone to enjoy. Thanks to Mark F, Alan M, Gordon M, Rodger W and Mark J for sorting these games out. A great start to Arctic Strike.
