    Ahhh… should have just checked those out myself (face palm).  That’s what happens when I get all excited about some minis - type before thinking eh eh eh

    This thread needs a bump… been doing some painting lately myself.

    Toblerone77,

    ––I’d be quite happy to see your latest paint jobs. All of us inspire each other, not to mention we get to enjoy someone else’s cool paint jobs. As a matter of fact, LHoffman should be posting pics of the German aircraft ‘prototypes’ today or tomorrow on his thread. I’ll be looking forward to seeing your newest units.

    I’m out of town right now but will post pics when I get back. I’m doing my old set from Milton Bradley right now. I had old Fortress America pieces mixed in. I posted those old pics but decided to repaint the ones I already have done. I have all th FA pieces done except some planes. Painting eight different color schemes on units that all look the same isn’t easy LOL!

    I bought some ANZAC, Italian, and French infantry from HBG I’ll be throwing in the mix too. I’m not sure people want to see the FA units so much on a WWII site but ehh I guess it’s related closely enough when contextualized.

    I have a technique I use that’s pretty unique and may post a tutorial eventually but who knows.

    Anyway I really have enjoyed painting miniatures and love seeing what everyone’s doing with these paintjobs.

    I tried painting the bases of my Infantry units, but after countless fails (maybe too much coffee. Or, too little. I dunno its a VERY fine line) i gave up. I may go back and do the air craft (I am thinking it may be an easier start to get the ball rolling) but only after i magnetise the ACC’s and the corresponding fighters and Tac bombers for Global 40.

    Wartorn & Others,

    ––FYI,… the painted bases on the Infantry units were painted by an artist named Chad Coffman, a.k.a. “Allworkandnoclay” rather than LHoffman. He just finished another “batch” of units if you want to see pics of them. Lucas does an amazing job himself, especially on the tiniest of details like cockpit frames, etc.
    ––I’m always up for seeing some of your painted units,…it keeps us all inspirred.

    Personally I do bases in black. Just because it is easier for jack boots or easy to paint leggings. It also makes it easier if you decide later to use modeling terrain such as grass or soil at a latter point.


  • Adding the national symbol to all those bases sure is time consuming, but it does help out in quickly knowing who’s forces are who’s. It would almost be easier to cut the base off, paint them and glue them back together.

    ––Having the bases of my Infantry units painted with their national insignia isn’t just to add to their “Cool Factor”,…it serves an actual purpose in that I find that I don’t need to use any
    “teritory control markers”
    on the gameboard, thus getting rid of some of the “clutter”, which is important even on a board that’s been enlarged to 4’ x 9’.

    Very nice!  I note with amusement that you posted this on the last half-day of this year’s winter, so perhaps the next painted set we’ll see will be Germans equiped for a summer offensive (or splattered with Russian springtime mud).  :-)

    ––Our first German Infantry types will be the Paratroopers. I held off doing all of the German Minor Infantry(Romania, etc) because I heard that HBG will be introducing some new units for these in their up-coming Global Warfare 1939 Expansion Sets.
    ––The Expansion Sets will also include a “Winter War” set with Russian & Finnish Ski Infantry! That ought to be some interesting “eye candy”.
    ––The German & Japanese Paratroopers(+ others) will be added to the que following the present ‘batch’ of some Infrastucture and Aircraft units.
    ----Who’s got some more new painted unit pics for me to enjoy seeing?!

  • @Tall:

    Regretably, not me.  When it comes to A&A sculpts, I’m a purist for natural-colour naked plastic.  Which, ironically, is why I’m so impressed by people who not only have the eyesight and the hand control to paint such tiny sculpts in such exquisite detail but who also have the patience and motivation to do so for dozens upon dozens of identical units.


  • These painted metal pieces all look so good. Can someone tell me where to buy the metal pieces?  There are so many oversized pieces and I want to only get the pieces that are axis and allies sized. It’s very confusing because no website tells how big the pieces actually are. Everything is a fraction and each piece uses a different scale. What are the correct ratio scales for each unit? I’d like to start with fighters bombers and aircraft carriers.


  • @ColonelPotter:

    What are the correct ratio scales for each unit?

    See this thread for information on scale:

  • Has anyone painted their early war Russians yet? I’d very much like to see some paint schemes for those.


  • “painted playing pieces” are just that, decals are way out of scale, not the emblem the plastic of the decal itself is too nasty on minis this size. These paint jobs are amazing!
