Painting So Far for the Canadian Armored Cars from Bill White's blog

I originally went with my armored car list as I had painted up a MW armored car company that got nerfed by V4. Ian's excellent idea of an escalation league presented an oppurtunity to bring them back out with some LW updates.


Right off the bat I needed a firefly and another Daimler 1. I was using Littlejohn adapters on one Daimler 1 in each Platoon, so I put that barrel option on. I painted them up in LW Firefly Green. I wound up painting 2 Fireflys. I tried some pigment washing on one. I liked the pigment, I just didn't like the color of the pigment. It looks more like rust than mud. I painted a second firefly and just went with my usual light dusting weathering with the Tamiya Weathering Kit.


I then needed some Infantry. I panted up a short platoon with only 4 stands of infantry. I will be adding to that this week with another 2 stands of infantry. I tried a new technique of basing them in German Camo Black Brown and then drybrushing English Uniform over that. I really like how it looked. I also used a bright grey green on the webbing in such to make it stand out.


I also painted up 3 Ram Kangaroos to use as Sherman Kangaroos. BF doesn't make a Sherman Kangaroo model. I really liked how the Ram Kangaroo looked versus using a Sherman tank without the turret.
