As with the earlier Panzer II and Panzer III, still need to at a tank commander from a Perry order. The camo is based upon an example I found on the internet. Used an old can of Tamiya OD for the basecoat, and then applied brush on Vallejo Dark Sand for the other major color. Outlined the sand color with with and the OD with black - as per the online example.

With the arrival of the very nice "lambda" shield decals from Veni Vidi Vici, managed to complete the Spartan project. Here are the 64 spearman along with the earlier completed command.

Just a quick post to show what I've been doing for the last week or so. Still waiting on the VVV lambda shield decals to finish the Artizan Spartans. In the meantime, built a few more movement trays - now have a total of 20 for 24-man units, and several others in different sizes - including two for the 32-man Spartan units. Also picked up a couple of 1/48th scale Blitzkrieg resin tanks and a box of Warlord Games Fallschirmjager in tropical uniform. The tanks are a Panzer II and an M3 Grant - both will be additions to the Western Desert Campaign. I picked all of these up from Sherwood Games on ebay. As you may already know, Sherwood Games is run by a Phil Vernon, who I had the fortune to meet at the WAB GT in 2013.
And whilst malingering on ebay, I also picked up a couple of 120mm resin figures - couldn't pass them up as they were only about $12 each and with free shipping. I actually have the German knight figure already, but had modified him so wanted another to build up per the kit.

Painted these up while awaiting the arrival of the VVV lambda shield decals. These are from the Artizan Spartan Command pack - less one other figure. The "lambda" are hand-painted on the two shields; not hard to do, but didn't want to do this 64 times over.
