"Tall Paul's" ITALIAN units, detailed & painted by the "WARMACHINE Team"


  • 2018 2017 2016 2015 Customizer

    Those are sweet for sure and with the correct roundel. 🙂


  • '14 Customizer

    Yep John, your correct.

    This or this is correct

    but

    NOT This   This is actually Iran’s roundel. The only reason I use it is because the map I made has this roundel.  I wish I would have changed it before I printed it.  Its not so easy to reprint since my map cost me over $500. I think I would have gone with this version.

    Yes, I’m also having a metal map done, and I forgot to have them reverse it as well. I should have written me a note, instead of relying on my memory. Mine is also over $500.00. It is 48x48 for each map. It is still being worked on. I may see if I could change the roundels, but I’ve probably waited too late. We will see! 😞

    Guys,

    ––Well, I didn’t get to finish uploading the Italian C.202 Fighter pics before I had to leave hurriedly,….so here are the Red stripe with Red nosed “Squadron colors” below. Notice the “F” decals denoting a Fighter unit. Enjoy!

    @cyanight:

    Very nice!  Those have great detail.

    **––Well, I want to say THANKS to R Johnson from over in Tyler as HE is the one that put me on to these decals. They are from PICO ARMOR if I remember correctly.

    Guys,

    ––Here are the Finished pics of the Italian BA.65 Dive Bombers in the Desert scheme . These are FMG units in the “Squadron colors” of Green Stripes w/Green noses. Notice the “D” decal that denotes a Dive Bomber. Enjoy!
    ––NOTE: I made a conscious decision to slightly compromise historical accuracy in order to improve Unit Identity by painting the leading edge of ALL Dive Bomber wings Yellow. This really aids unit identity even when the map is very cluttered, or the units are 5-10 feet away. We play on a much enlarged map and this small compromise helps players a LOT, especially my 90-year old Dad, a WW-2 vet.

    Those Dive Bombers are pretty sweet, Paul! 😄


  • '14 Customizer

    Those are awesome…  Love how they used two colors for the camo.

    John and others,

    @John:

    Those Dive Bombers are pretty sweet, Paul! 😄
    **––Glad you liked them, John. You’ll have to come and use them in one of our games again one day. Did you take note of the Yellow leading edges of the Dive Bomber’s wings in order to identify them as such. It’s just like the White wingtips on my Air Transports that mark them as such.

    Is the yellow represent dive bombers or something else?


  • Customizer

    John and others,

    ––ALL my Dive Bombers will have a Yellow leading edge on their wings, whatever their nationality and/or if it was historically acurate for the paint schemes. I decided to do this for MY dive bomber units
    in order to increase their IDENTIFYABILITY as dive bombers,….just like I had MY Air Transports painted with White wingtips and stripes (the ONLY a/c painted w/White details). This might not be a solution that anyone else likes or adopts,…but it works for me and my group. We ALL can now easily identify a Dive Bomber unit from a good distance away, especially my 90-year old WW2 veteran Dad.

    I got you. I guess I didn’t remember that. 🙂

    Great idea on painting the wings to identify them as dive bombers.  I like that a lot.

    @cyanight:

    **––Well, in this case I made the consious decision to INCREASE the gameplay identification of units and slightly DECREASE the historical accuracy of paintjobs.
    ----We usually play on a custom enlarged (4’x9’) G-40 gameboard and you might be surprised at how far some units are from the viewer, especially if you are “strategising” when it’s not your turn. Add to that a large group of units,…or how well the camo paint schemes actually work to make it more difficult to identify unit TYPES quickly, and well, you get the picture.
    ----I’ve found that sufficient PLANNING makes almost any task better in the end and my A&A gaming certainly falls into this category.
    ----I’m glad you liked my idea, and please feel free to adopt it. IMHO it simply seems a logical step taken to “better” a situation, like the White painted Air Transports.

    Guys,

    ––Well, to continue with my organising and renaming of the pics,…here are the COMPLETED pics of the Italian BR.20 Medium Bombers in the Desert scheme in two “Squadron colors”. These aircraft are in the “squadron colors” of Green noses and Green fuselage stripes.Notice the “M” decal that denotes them as Medium Bombers. Enjoy!

    They look like they are ready for a bombing run! 😄


  • '14 Customizer

    Those are nice.  Great detail on the canopy of the planes.  Excellent!

    I have done something similar with my ships to distinguish Destroyers, Cruisers and Battleships from one another. All our Battleships have these large flags on them.  They look out of scale but still big enough to see without a magnifying glass. Also I put decals of the nation’s roundel on the Cruisers to distinguish them from the destroyers.
