The trick is to paint a white patch, trim it diagonally with black from above and red from below to get a thin white stripe and then paint the helmet colour around in shield shape. It´s a bit like painting eyes. :grin:
By the way: Top job Piers! The land dreadnought is tremendously good. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

Seriously - another great year and I reckon your standard has gone up again this time around. :clapping: :clapping: :clapping:

Plenty of highlights but your early war stuff has inspired me the most - now where's that Panzer Grey paint? ;)
