And as part of my 2020 summer plans, I want to build a ton of military base terrain. Towers, sandbags, hesco bastion and so on. But here's the start for the project at least.
I found a good toy and did a bit of work on it. This first one is a generic army truck, usable for every country. I also got some specific Russian vehicles for use in Zona Alfa.
Scratch the entire thing with sandpaper to make paint and wash stick better.
Use masking tape to cover any glass, metal and wheels you don't want base coated.
When gearing up to playing some Zona Alfa I went online to find some russian military vehicles. I have mostly humvees and other very american looking vehicles. Found an ebay seller with some cheap toys, actual models of real vehicles.
These were better in color, so only gave these a mat varnish and a thick layer of wash.
This is another toy. A BTR-80 is a Russian armored personel carrier, so it was an obvious must have for the Zona Alfa board.
This is actually a german APC it turns out, so it was wrongly labelled on ebay, but nevermind that.
It's another quick wash job. Actually there's a few pieces on it that could have been picked out (shovels, axes etc) - might go back an do that one day.
