Shermans vs Tigers

I had some skytrex minis HoTT based a while ago, but since then I have found lots of interesting websites, such as this with too much inspiration to let my poor minis look like drybrush victims of a broom. I took some of them of their bases again, and gave them some real paintjob!
I begun with some base color, then a thin black wash, a second base color for the tigers, and a highlight before painting tracks and freehanding stars and crosses.

Too bad I can't seem to get good macro shots, I tried a lot of different lights, the sun is recharged and even then I cant really seem to get the real color on the pictures. Well, here they are, enjoy and remember, they are in 1/300 scale, a man is supposed to be 6mm next to these "beasts" (bugs?).

The tiger looks big when placed next to the sherman, but not when placed next to anyting else!


  1. Great stuff, I have some 1/300 Tigers and T-34s, which I will dig out soon :)

  2. Nice work Jonathan. Good painting.
