HRR 5, Day 9

Quick post will do it for tonight, folks. I finished the first platoon's VB team and another Rifle/MG team. The heavier texture on the VB team (the one in the back) is from a little hobby experiment I tried. I took a whack at basing the stand with Vallejo White Pumice instead of putty, sand, and GF9 rocks. I like the pumice, but not at this scale. I think the ground looks too churned up/rough, so this is the only stand that will get that treatment. However, the white pumice would look fantastic on a 28mm scale fig, so this is definitely something I'm going to use on an army in the future. If you're curious and would like to know more about the pumice, check it out here at Vallejo's site. It's cool, and they've got a lot more textury goodness there as well.

I'm way behind, so I really need a strong hobby week next week if I'm going to pull this Hobby Rush off. Ugh.


  1. I've been looking for the Black Lava & Mica Flake..do you know if any store selling them in Malaysia?

  2. I don't know of any shops in MY that sell this stuff, but you can order the entire Vallejo range from Maelstrom no problem including their pumice, water effects, etc.

  3. Coming along real nicely ... we shall drive you back to Paree and beyond!
