Finally finished this up today …… the 28mm Empress Miniatures (ex Imprint Models) Bradley.
Ok the actual scale is 1/50th, probably chosen by teh manufacturer to fit in the the diecast gaming vehicles of Solido and Dinky. But as it’s in between 1/46th and 1/56th its usable with figures and vehicles of both scales.
A few extra details were added (wip pics in an earlier post) and it took me some time to get the colour right as this is my first large scale US modern. While still missing a few things and being a little soft on detail in places it still scrubbed up quite well and looks superb on the gaming table. Also gotta admit that the more moderns I do the more I enjoy them. Probably a large touch of nostalgia as our first 2 complete wargame armies were ’90s GHQ modern micro armour, US and Warpact. Geee I wish we still had those ……..
Anyway brush painted with GW acrylics over enamel primer as usual. Decals came from a 1/35th Academy M113 (danger – mini rant – wish manufacturers of gaming vehicles would stock/supply decals for their vehicles). Troops are modern Kiwis from the Skirmish Sangin range, not painted by me unfortunately, I just have them on hand to take pics of them for their website.
As an aside I’m just about to start a stash of Airfix British modern vehicles for the owner of the Bradley who’s gonna be using all this stuff with our tidied-up (ie spelling mistakes fixed and coffee stained pages reprinted) in-house Fire Team Skirmish rules. So more moderns on the way ……….
