18mm Scifi GZG CDF.

Another nicely sculpted set of minis from GZG.
When these came out , I said that they would be great for near future British troops, especially since the helmets are similar to modern British ones.

The Mechs are scratchbuilt ( had them for around 7 years waiting to be painted )

& the vehicles are heavily converted 

I decided to use natural terrain material instead of paste as in previous posts.
The terrain is all natural dried vine leaves & other dried organic material put through a metal sieve to make it as thin as possible, the metal sieve acts as a grater so only fine particles go through.

The bushes are hand made using synthetic grass, white glue & a credit card.
Just put drops of white glue on the credit card , sprinkle then press with another credit card, shake off excess, form them into nice rounded individual shapes with a thin flat tool whilst still wet, sprinkle more material. I use a piece of clear Perspex rubbed vigorously on a woollen jersey ( i.e. your sleeve ) to generate static electricity to gently pull up the individual strands. Once dry, you have individual bushes. Just shave them off & glue them with Pva. You will end up with a credit card size worth of bushes. The green material is synthetic , the straw coloured is dried natural material.

Here are the special forces -

Thanks for your comments. Z
