October War: Israeli Recon Platoon

For a change of pace I decided to paint up some more of my 6mm Arab-Israeli project but came to a grinding halt when I ran out of Middlestone paint for the bases. However I did just have enough in the bottle to finish the four bases for this IDF Recon Platoon.

The miniatures are GHQ, yes they are a little on the pricey side, but compared to the costs of other scales and other periods the damage is not too bad and the detail on the models fantastic.

Painting techniques was straight forward, Vallejo Medium Grey over a black undercoat, washed with Army Painter Strong Tone ink, then drybrushed Medium Grey, wheels, tracks, markings done and a very light Buff drybrush (the same colour used to highlight the base). Simple, but effective.

Painting Target: 233/1000


  1. Very nice. Sometimes you have got to pay that little bit more for quality.

  2. Really neat to see some 6mm IDF stuff. Incredible detail.
