Phoenix Guard, FOW and TYW Swedes

Flipping around between projects over the last couple of weeks - starting with a batch of 2nd hand and refurbished High Elf Phoenix Guard - these are old GW metals that I stripped and repainted.


Then I made a start on a mid-war FOW project - a company of 15mm Battlefront Grenadiers for a mid-war infantry company I am putting together to play 4th edition:

And finally in the last week I took on a job to paint some TYW Swedes and Imperials for a friend - there are very familiar Warlord 28mm models - same plastics as the ECW troops with some different helmets, command and some metal foot figures.

6mm Canadians for Team Yankee and a foray into FOW

This week I finished off some infantry and IFVs (M150, M125, M113 and M114 standing in for Lynx recon vehicles) for a 6mm Canadian 4CMBG force to play Team Yankee:

And I dabbled with some 15mm vehicles for FOW V4 after picking up the starter kit. I painted the Mk III and Mk IV in early panzergrau. I also picked up a couple of Zvezda 1:100 kits (and Mk III flamethrowing tanks and an Mk IVD notable for the lack of bustle). The Zvezda kits go together nicely but are a bit weedy compared to Battlefront and have shallower detail which shows in the pictures. They are also a bit lighter because I didn't undercoat them in black before working through the greys - my bad! That would have helped with depth.
