Revised Core Set Axis Army Painted

I am bad at painting but anything is better than the plain gray that they come in the box as. :)
This is the pictures I have of them! This is not the best as every model you can see the brush marks... (how do you make your paints a solid color on the plastic?) I am currently working on the Allied army and will post the pics of them at a later date. :)

Te army so far!

Also, the colors I used were dark purple for the under garments or whatever they are, yellow for the main armor, brown for the skin, and black for the guns and weaponry. Again I am up for suggestions so go ahead and comment guys!

My first Warfare game board in progress

Well, this is not only my first time trying out my skills at making a decent Dust Warfare game board, but it is the first time I have ever attempted to make a miniature wargame board ever!  Before the critisism gets out of control, th board is a 4'x4', so it's not a typical board size.

The board so far
Now, my plan for how this was going to play out was that the two elevations accross from each other would be where two opponents would enter the battlefieldduring deployment. The builing in th far corner is going to be on of the places to get a defensive advantage and possibly an objective of the scenerio. The wooded area (will eventually turn out to be a forest) is going to have an objective in the middle of it most of the time. The elevation piece that hasn't been mentioned is most likely going to end up being another building or fort to get to.
The tree area that will have a difficult objective to get to in the middle
There will be more trees arounf too
The elevations on opposite corners will be deployment
One last thing, there is going to be a grass bottom with snow clumps everywhere, to show that the area has been snowed on but not recently.
I am open for any suggestions as this is the first board I have ever made. :)
