With my longstanding interest in very small scale models, the Pendraken 2013 painting competition announcement caught me in a pretty vulnerable condition. In addition to the late Roman infantry of the post below, I decided I would also paint up a few stands of Second World War pieces. I chose Germans because they are the most fun to paint.
These are the results of my efforts so far - a Hetzer tank hunter and two bases of late war infantry. I've tried to give the scenic elements a suitably drab look, having in mind the autumn of 1944. Each infantry base consists of three riflemen (one with a panzerfaust) and a noncom with an stg 44. I've tried to give a suggestion of camouflage on some of the uniforms, without going too too far out of scale.
I hope in time to expand on this small force, though there are a couple other projects ahead of it in the queue. It's an enticing subject of course, and I like the Pendraken offerings a lot. The detail is decent, considering the 10mm scale, and they are pretty inexpensive. That's a big plus when considering whether or not to embark on a whole new project.
