Empress Miniatures Bradley, Chieftain Models Scimitar and Cromwell Challenger – Modern wips

Working on a few moderns at the moment, 2x 1/56th – an Empress Miniatures M3A2 Bradley plus a Chietain Models Scimitar and a 1/72nd Cromwell Challenger 1 (ODS).

Matching the modern desert colours has proved an interesting challenge to say the leaat.
The US and UK colours have distinct shades but vary widley in reference photos depending on the ambient light.
There are also obvious factory applied colours difference between the different vehicle types.
The upshot is I repainted the Bradley and Scimiatr three times until I got shades I was happy with …….

Q

Progress so far ……….

  1. That Challenger is going to be awesome – makes me want to do modern tanks warfare in 20mm!!! The other stuff is also pretty rad…need more toys.

    • Yeah, start getting the Team Yankee kits in then buddy …… we only need another 40 or so : ))))) Then we’ll do ultra modern – promise, some sort of Chetchnya thingy maybe? Although Desert is very prettyyyyyyyy.
