NSL Feuer Truppe Zeta

Here are my NSL Feuer Truppe,

Painted in Vallejo Aircolour sand base & Humbrol white + Windsor & newton peat brown ink.
First white undercoat, then sand airbrush ,then white dry brush , then peat brown ink wash ,then white.
Then blending with white + ivory & touching up with brown wash.

Flesh in 3 tones on white base.
Black + Grey weapons ,goggles , belt + backpack in 3 shades of grey over black base.
Based on 2 euro coins,Pva + granulated dried plaster of Paris which first painted in grey watercolour wash.Granulating will give you various shades of grey , perfect for urban .Snow was bought from Antenocities & mixed with Pva.

The ruined buildings are handmade, using engraved sandstone which was first cut to the desired thickness.High walls made out of black jablo & attacked with solvent & soldering iron.Then simply drybrushed with varying shades of grey + white.Black airbrushed into shell holes.
Finally finished 70+ NSL Grunts







3 more NSL conversions.I think the best one that came out is the LMG one.The legs & feet snap off very easily & I ended up with 2 broken off legs & feet.The one on the right ended up with a slightly bent leg as I couldn't drill it properly.Still some more work left on them. I enjoy doing conversions as it adds variety.

I made up the HMG team using the 2 prone figures, I lengthened the hmg barrel to make it look heavier
The standing missile launcher upper torso was swapped the the one from the kneeling one,so as to have 4 different ones.



Drone controller converted from NCO mini ( head made with white milliput, his l/h hand is from the female on the right) I hollowed his helmet & stuck it to his belt.The Female ( now an NCO ) got the pointing arm.I'm used to converting 28/30mm minis but converting 15mm especially pinning is a different thing altogether. Making a head in 15mm out of putty is definitely not easy and my respect for self made sculptors like Armies Army & PF went up by 100%







Drone made from a GW TAu helmet ,plastic sprue & PVC ( for pvc sculpting see my other post)
