I've been cleaning up and basing a bunch of GZG's 15mm New Israeli miniatures this week (yup, I bought more :D), as well as getting these a little closer to being finished (part of the great 2022 Painting Bench Clear Off). I'm having second thoughts on the basing scheme, so they're staying bare sand for the time being until I sort something out.

sweet. If you're doing our thing, you need brigade colors somewhere (i'd suggest helmet mark)

Those weapons are amazing

Thanks. Got a link to a doc or picture on the colors?

Ummm should no no problem. Probably going to be in Hebrew but honestly the pictures show off all you need.
You can probably ignore brigade specific colors (eg golani) and while the colors are based on unit, not role per say, I think you can stretch it for use with specific formations/ models

So
Red => para brigade
Black => armored units
Turquoise => artillery

Well they already look like General Corps to me, Jimmy. :P

I finished the last four prone troopers I had from my first batch of New Israeli that I picked up some 10+ years ago. I'm still thinking on the basing.

Image

During the GZG Christmas sale I picked up a few reinforcements, and while they technically weren't "on" it they were bench adjacent. So I built them all up, then based, primed, base coated and washed them all so they're ready to go when I come back to them.

Thanks Jimmy.

I saw Clockwork Goblin's 15mm K47 for the first time the other day and was hooked enough to start painting some American riflemen that I've had for a good five years now. I've had the FoW Armored Infantry Platoon to use with Chain of Command and other platoon-level games, 15mm K47 was the impetus to start seeing how they paint up. I promised myself I'd get to buy some mechs if I can finish the infantry first.

Image

They're based on M10 washers for their weight and easy magnetized transport. I finished up the Bazooka and 60mm Mortar teams last night. I've got 10 more infantry, the 30 cal teams and the NCOs left.

Thanks Jimmy.

I finished up the second batch of 15mm American Rifleman tonight. After the NCOs and 30 cal teams are done next week I hope to get to the halftracks and an M10.

I finished up the last of the infantry I have this week. 40 figures in two weeks is a pretty good output for me. I also went back and painted the leather straps where I saw them over the brim of the helmets as I missed them the first time around. Next are the half-tracks and an M10, then on to something else while I wait for re-supply.

I started building M3 Halftracks at the start of the month and got most of the way through with them before I lost interest two weeks ago. I'll head back and finish them at somepoint but in the meantime I've been painting for riflemen to fill out the platoon and also built a paratrooper platoon on the whim.

Image

The greens are done as of this week, and I've started in on the leather and wood. After that's done it'll be the skin, metal and bases.

I finished up another 42 15mm Americans this week, effectively doubling what I had painted.

Image

Joining the platoon is another 20 riflemen, 4 NCOs, 2 Bazooka teams, a 50 Cal team, 3 BARs and some COs.

Image

I still have a few support options for Chain of Command that I want to finish up, as well as figure out how I'm going to convert a flamethrower team.

I can't remember for how long these Marauder Bombers have been sitting on my desk. They were originally slated to be part of the Knight army, but when I rebased those Thunderbolts to pull double duty with the Minervans these came a long for the ride. I've been meaning to finish converting and painting them so this was what I worked on these past two weeks as part of the great desk clean off.

Image

To make them WYSIWYG I added a tail-chaser gun that matched the dorsel gun using a round-ended pin. The lascannons were chopped off of some SM.TL guardsmen and glued to the wings. Nothing fancy on the paint job, just matching what I did seven (!) years ago for the Knight's Thunderbolts.
