hi guys, it's been a very long time since i posted something on ML ... but i got my workbench back, after almost 10 years happy.gif

after many problems using AK interactive paints, i finally got a basic finish that i was happy with ... won't ever use those paints again !

I had to heavily modify the turret gunner to fit in place (he wasn't supposed to get there), the driver is a kitbash just to be there ... standing figs are from Djiti productions.

the whole composition is based on numerous documentaries i watched on youtube of french spec-ops operations in Mali / Sahel. Most of those ops were aimed to lock the terrorists chain of reappro and finally get rid of the various groups operating in Mali. timeline is around 2014 - 2015.

still a lot to do on the vbl, figs and groundwork but it slowly begins to look like something happy.gif
