Well to queue in with the others, I also have started to paint some of the lovely O8 stuff. I will use these with Hind Commander (which uses single basing) but dont want to move 200+ units all one by one. And I may use the Modern Spearhead rules on these, so for keeping it simple I just went with "what looks nice". Bonus: Everything I will paint in the near future may also be used via Team Yankee (apart from me using M1A1 instead of M1s and Apache instead of Cobras for now)
I opted for regular Desert Camo on the tanks and aircraft black on the Apache, most pics I found on the net had them either painted in Helicopter Olive greenish or Black. Since I dont own the matching colour on the olive but wanted to paint the fella, I went with Black. I will probably go with 4/4 each colour variant. Now some pics:

This thread is another reason to have a "like" button/option.

Well done!

Nice work!

I assume that Valajo paste on the bases? Where are the micro tufts from?

Very nice... When I saw them "in the flesh" ("in the armored composite"?), apaches were all olive; pretty sure all US ones had that scheme.

Perhaps they're an alternate universe version of a flight from the Night Stalkers? :)
(fairly certain they didn't fly apaches but not my army so... :) )

EXCELLENT !!!!

Also FYI- Night Stalkers - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/160th_Spe ... irborne%29 IIRC, we were lifted in many times, by some of the 160's units before they became the Night Stalkers. Back in '81-'83, before that they had UH1s then replaced with UH60s ...

Of course, many other Army Av units flew AH-64s replacing the AH1s. And I've never seen any US ARMY choppers painted other than olive drab. Back then. Where USAF and USMC birds were camo'd ...

Well, my Google Search dug up an article with a pic of USMC pushing a pitch black heli during Desert Storm. And a pic of a row of Black Apaches in the Desert. Plus it looks cool and I am going to be pretty liberate with camo :P

Great googly-moogly! If this doesn't put to bed the "no detail, too small" argument for good, I don't know what will!

You sure that "black" isn't dark Olive Drab ? Not that is matters, you should paint your models any colors you like ! ^-^

Pretty. Plus the official "painting guides" by the US military indicate black as a viable colour. Got the link on a different machine, will post as soon as I get back to said PC
