1/285th Armor or Micro Scale.....Modern Monday!

You'll notice in the pictures that I have built a small table to hold my tiles.  This will be used for "Coal Legion" to take games on the road or hold demo days.  Its very early in its design and drove my wife nuts watching me work on it instead of the house projects.

1/285th Armor or Micro Scale.....Modern Monday!

Small update today but big, I found an embassy building and also bulked out with some taller shops from GameCraft Miniatures.

$50.00 USD for this order to keep the shipping cost down.

1/285th Armor or Micro Scale.....Modern Monday!

Now that buildings and boards are painted with base coats I can get an idea of what I have.  Some of the buildings have been moved around a bit to try out different layouts.


WOW this table looks very brown, I hope to add some color to it in the future.  But as you can see I still have some empty spots and the embassy isn't on the table.  That is gonna have to wait as I haven't found an acceptable model for it yet.

Bolt Action - Expanding the force !!!

After my first game with the guys, its time for reinforcements because I know there will be some list tailoring going on in the coming weeks.  With that in mind its time to start building the cool stuff of the Soviet Army.

1/285th Armor or Micro Scale.....Modern Monday!

Buildings have been primed with "Army Painter Desert Brown" and washed with "Army Painter Strong Tone" with a dry brush of "Vallejo Iraqi Sand".  I will go back and paint in doors and windows later but onto the reason of today's update.

Make sure to use any varnish product in a well ventilated area.
