15mm Modern British Army BsV10 All Terrain Armoured Vehicle or Viking for short.......

.........from Old Glory!

Received nearly all these vehicles for free from my Secret Santa last year, it took a while to build up the courage to make them (even after contacting Old Glory for a picture), not the best of sculpts and the picture didn't really help but in the end they turned out not too bad!

Not been posting too much but I do wander around the blogosphere reading and commenting on others but not as much as I like due to work and life kicking me in the groin quite a lot lately. I do hope to make Salute this year just for a look around and to meet up with friends.

Here's some pictures and please find the mistake which I took ages to avoid.............










One in the field.............

  9. They look excellent, but I think the aerials are upside down.

  10. The Viking at the left rear has the tracks reversed. No biggie. They look really good little models.

  11. Is the mistake that you forgot to post boobs? Let's call these very well done and spot on too. They could pull double duty in steampunk or sci fi gaming too.

  16. Hail Franonia! Well done my General. Even the mistake of using a mouse/rat hole in the background is superb. Can you do no wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Very nicely done Fran, I believe one vehicle has the wrong trailer section but the real mistake is a lack of boobs my friend ;)

  23. The Vehicle in the last picture (Back left Vehicle) has a track facing the wrong way on the tractor unit, not the trailer unit. Because I painted some of these in 20mm last year I spotted the mistake easily.... If you have not painted a Viking before you will easily miss it. Ok enough of me being a smart arse.

    These will be great additions to you Franonian forces. Personally I think you need more Bar Armour as they do look a little vulnerable but those despicable Rayonians can't shoot for toffee so you should be ok. Nice Work mate.

    Those periods when work kicks you in the groin can be rough -- I've had some myself from time to time. I'm pulling for you.
