I watched a youtube video of the DAK firing their Flak 88s while still on the transport carriage recently....and I had a spare pair of 88 parts sitting in a box......

Still rough, and phone photo under fluro lights so dodgy. I'll undercoat it tomorrow to find all the flaws dry.gif

Had to scrounge up a crew including robbing a couple of loaders from my other 88 battery. Anyone got a spare 88 seated gunner or two......? armata_PDT_05.gif

Project starting to take shape. WoT tragics like myself should recognise the bad boy in the background. Should work as a Jagdtiger proxy.

Fantastic painting diary. It is logs like this that made me get an airbrush for my own flames of war armata_PDT_37.gif

It is a 1/144 scale kit from a company called Sweet. It is very nicely engineered so can be put together in about 10 minutes. Judging by Ebay prices it may no longer be in production though.

Love to see the outcome of your airbrush adventures smile.gif

Very neat gear; I've grabbed a bunch of his conversion sets. Quick and cheap postage from Germany too.

Some more units for the EW Grenadier army. Lets hope EW continues to get some play time!

Barbarossa Grenadiers/Schutzen. I'll probably finish these just in time for people to start playing late war again. armata_PDT_02.gif

Need some inspiration for a basing scheme though.

I also gave them a mix of old and new pattern uniforms and painted Waffenfarbe on some. Silly me,

Looking good. I'm been thinking of running my Sturm Tigers again.

Were they only used on the Eastern Front and defense of Germany?

I can only see them in a Totenkopf panzer list in Grey Wolf, and in two of the Nuts! lists. I think I'll try and build for the Grey Wolf one, though I'll need a bunch of PzIVs.

IRL they actually were mostly used on the Western front, so I guess that's represented by the Nuts lists.

I use the SturmTigers in my Security Company from the GW book. RT and having to have 3 crappy rifle team platoons isn't great BUT I do have 12 platoons! 2 RT Sturm Tigers, 8 ambushing Hezters, 4 88's and Hs 129's (you never know when and if they will show up but NO tank platoon wants to get hit by them).

I'd have thought some bombers for dealing with pesky arty parks would be a better bet. I have looked at the Sicherung company, but yeah, 3 compulsory small platoons of chump infantry doesn't look that appealing smile.gif

I don't have Grey Wolf....does the Sicherung have any special rules? Always defend maybe?

No, not that I can see. The 3 infantry just get plonked on objective and the tanks do the heavy lift till the rest of the army arrive- I ALWAYS seem to get the missions with reserves/ delayed reserves.

I can change things around a bit to get 2 elephants in and Kampfgruppe the 2IC. Pretty easy to do.

I like that NO tank is safe from the Hs-129B AND I can still have a shot at arty if needed.

I drew up one with 8 platoons including a pair of Elefants, some Hetzers, Panhards and the Sturm Tigers, though I went with the Stuka D for the firepower 1+ bombs. It looks like it'd be fun to run, though Hetzers as your primary assault unit perhaps not so clever smile.gif
