Thought I'd quickly post this picture. I bought these haystacks at Broadside and quickly painted them up a couple of days ago. The models are resin and although they are supposedly 15mm scale they could easily be used for 28mm wargaming as well. Made by Mainly Military resin Scenics and sold by the Plastic Soldier Company.

The paint job couldn't have been simpler. I cleaned both models with acetone (acetone based nail varnish remover will do) then undercoated them with GW white primer. Each model was then just washed with Vallejo dark Flesh in wash and then drybrushed with bright yellow for highlight. Then I painted the ground dark brown with some simple highlighting. I decided not to add static grass as I thought it looked better like this.

I finished off with the usual GW Purity Seal satin varnish and then two coats of Testors Dullcoat to give them a Matt finish.


  1. Those would be good for somebody to stick a bayonet or a pitchfork in to find who's hiding in there.

  2. Hah! I just posted something similar this morning :D
    Looking good, Lee :)

    Cheers, Mojo

  3. The top of them looks more like a sheet to keep the hay dry?

  4. What did the first haystack say to the second haystack?

  5. "What did the first haystack say to the second haystack?"
    "Hay! Is that a Pitchfork in your bale, or are you just pleased to see me?"
