20mm Battlegroup New painting style

My son fancied a game of Battlegroup, this time in 20mm. We have lots of 20mm stuff from when we played I Aint Been Shot Mum before moving onto 15mm for Battlegroup. I'll do an article on the whys and wherefores of that one day.

I had unpainted Fireflies and Cromwells to get painted up so needed a quick painting solution.

Anyway, I'm going for a style that looks good from a couple of feet away as opposed to just in "close up". I've emphasised the edging and raised detail. Let me know what you think please.

My son calls it the "Cartoon" look and I like it.

They were done in two nights as I had a game with them planned for the Saturday. Vallejo Acrylics.

Resin 20mm Crowmells, PSC Fireflies, Matt Cote drying in the sun.

Polish 1st Armoured division.

A little chipping, but not too much.

After market sandbags and spares box stowage, and camo net.


  1. Very pretty. You didn't describe your method. Was it really necessary to go a new slightly smaller scale?

    1. Thank you Lloyd. It isn't necessary at all, we (I) just wanted to find the best scale for gaming considering factors such as available table size. storage room, model "personality" and so on. We have WW2 armies in 10mm, 15mm, 20mm and my son is doing some in 28mm as we speak. I'll put my thoughts into a post in due course if people are interested in our findings. As regards the painting, I can do a step by step guide the next time I paint some toys if you like.

    2. Method here Lloyd, https://rubbsalotsmancave.blogspot.co.uk/2017/09/puma-28mm-painting-guide-for-impatient.html

  2. I think it looks absolutely superb, and would love to see a step by step guide, especially as I am in the process of painting up some Minitanks 1960s Bundeswehr tanks at the moment!

    1. Thanks Ian, I'll figure the best way to do that and come up with something :)

    2. Hi Ian, tutorial is done here mate https://rubbsalotsmancave.blogspot.co.uk/2017/09/puma-28mm-painting-guide-for-impatient.html
