Finally got around to finishing the GHQ Tigers. It’s kinda too bad I don’t play WWII, I’m pretty happy with how these came out.
Camouflage was airbrushed using the amazing Badger Sotar 20/20 airbrush.
Done with the M60A3. I’m not happy with the Vallejo “Matte Varnish”, it still looks a little shiny to me. I’ve got some AK Ultra Matte Varnish on order,, when it gets here I’ll give it a try and see if it’s better.
After all the silly things like paint racks and tool drawers have been added, it’s time to concentrate on the important things. Tonight I added a TV in the corner and an AppleTV so I can watch inspirational movies while I work … or Fawlty Towers.

Second color applied tonight. At this rate these 5 tanks are going to take me a week to finish 🙂
The Sotar 20/20 airbrush performed amazingly well on the green camo ,,, tomorrow the brown goes on.
The therapeutic power of a hobby is amazing. I have been so busy with work for the last few months I have not touched any Micro Armor in as long. Just taking a few minutes tonight to throw a little paint (first of three colors) on a few minis made me feel good and remember why I do this. Next step (probably tomorrow) is to apply the camouflage colors, this is will be a good job for my new Sotar 20/20 airbrush.
I’m getting ready to overhaul my workbench where I work on my Micro Armor.
One really fast bugger and one with a whirly bit on top. I just got one of each for me and few more each for the store, I’ll see if I like them and then most likely get some more for me.
I picked up these rules on eBay for a reasonable price. This rule set has some sentimental value to me,,, it’s the very first miniatures war game I ever played. This is the set of rules that got me interested in Micro Armor … and eventually led me to the business I’m in today.
I’m happy I found these, in pretty good condition, at a fair price.
Sometimes I forget that as a GHQ dealer I have close to $10k in GHQ product on the shelf in my shop and every once in a while I can treat myself to a few pieces for my collection.
Tonight I decided I’d like to start working on a few pieces of GHQs recent Italian armor releases.
I’m starting with some Ariete MBTs, Freccia IFVs, and some Centauros with 105mm guns.
I’m thinking I might paint them as Malakastani units and say that Malakastan bought them from Italy.
