Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Last weekend's work - Italeri #6063 US Paratroopers

Good day and good week amici miei!

Busy weekend the last one, I only managed to paint four figures,  some US Paratroopers from Italeri (ex. Esci #209) and (Anti Tank Teams # 6131).

A nice simple mortar base (based on the infamous pizza taps) with two figures and two other fellows throwing grenades - German artillerymen beware!




I hope you like 'em!

  1. Awesome work Thanos. Four is much better than none, especially with that much detail.

    Well done.

  2. These look excellent. I like your use of the .30 cal gunner as a loader for the mortar, great idea! What colours are you using for the para's uniforms? I can never seem to get the right shade, but this looks just right.

    1. Thank you Alan!
      I'm using Vallejo's MC 70.879 Green brown. I think it gives them a nice colouring and makes them stand in the field (in a wargames table...not in reality) :-)

  7. I still regret not grabbing a box of the Anti-Tank teams when I saw them. Great use of that dodgy .30 cal man there.

  16. Sorry to add to this thread so long after original posting - but what are you using for your base? A washer? Any details you could provide would be appreciated. Your stuff is inspirational
