CV-33 in 20mm by Frontline and a give-away at Wargaming Girl

A break in my French adventures - I’ve really had it with camo for a while. This time a suitable target for LRDG, an Italian CV-33 tankette.
I tried to weather it to look like a really run down piece of scrap metal.
The model is a resin 3-piece thing from Frontline Wargaming. Descent detailing, but a couple of bubbles here and there, so it needed some green-stuff.
Paints used
Overall Vallejo 916 Sand Yellow
Rubber rims on the wheels Vallejo Panzer Aces 306 Dark Rubber
Washed with Army Painter Quickshade Soft Tone ink and drybrushed Citadel Chainmail
Tracks Citadel Chainmail with a wash of AK enamel Track Wash (a new product I tried for the first time – I’m satisfied with the result, and will continue experimenting with it)
Applied some Vallejo Pigment 73108 Brown Iron Oxide and a generous dusting with AK Pigments AK-041 North Africa Dust.
Such a tiny little thing, here in front of a Panzer II

Soon some fantasy figures.

Wargaming Girl is a really nice site by one of the relatively few active females in the hobby. A very active painter, with mainly Ancients, ACW, 30YW and SF in 15 to 28mm.
Anyway, she has just reached 100 000 hits, and is celebrating big time with a give-away every day for five days.
Day one was a box of Warlord 28mm WWII British infantry
Day two saw two gift vouchers, one from Baccus the other from Ground Zero Games.
Day three: More Warlord plastics, this time a box of Pike & Shotte Royalist Infantry.
Day four – eight 28mm fantasy figures from Reapers’ Bones series.
Day five – today – we see another box from Warlord – Spartans this time.

I’m interested in the Reaper figures, and maybe the Spartans, hopefully I’m lucky. I really need a bigger plastics mountain…
So, go over to Wargaming Girl and check out the giveaway! There is still time to participate in all five competitions. And while you’re there, check out the rest of the site also. Well worth the time!
