'Armour' from AnthonyO: French Laffly AMD 80

This vehicle is a French Laffly AMD80 Armoured Car and is going to provide some light support for my Vichy French WW2 project. I am not 100% sure who the manufacturer is so rather than risk getting it wrong I will just say it is a nice resin kit in 1/56 scale.



In Bolt Action game terms that are hardly inspiring but are an accurate vehicle for my force and have a Mad Max type of feel to them which suits my band of plucky Legionnaires.



The painting was done, after an initial base coat with a brush, by using foam from blister packs to createlayers of brighter colours from Desert Sand up to Bone White. The overall effect hopefully has created a subtle weathered look and fits in with the way I have painted my troops.

  12. What a great looking a/c. Love the weathering effect. I've taken notes on your spongeing techniques. One of my faves this round.

  13. So nice, the colouring and weathering are artfully done and the basing adds so much more. A strong entry.
    Sometimes in early war games, just having something like this in your corner gives you a very nice ... edge.

  18. The shading and weathering are top notch! I love most the armor cars and trucks of the period, so much to loot for pulpy games! ;)
