Haven't painted anything much recently and have never done 15mm tanks before. Thought I'd try out some new weathering tech too.

Never enough Tigers to go round:

Clapped out training school tanks:

On to the infantry and some basing tests.

Tigers came out a bit dark....was using an old dodgy Aztek airbrush that struggles to do much right. I've got a new shiny one to try on the next project. Also not sure I'm doing pigments right yet...I'd hoped for a more muddy look...have to watch some more how to videos. smile.gif

The Italians are all painted and ready for a flogging too! Pick a time.

Probably can't do this weekend, but how does next Sunday sound? I should have a bit more painted by then as well.

The Kampfgruppe Kersher PDF now it has been approved for V3. Kinda cool list and Kersher himself is pretty solid.

Side track to make a quick 1500 point mid war Panzer army for test battles. There was some talk of 3 Tigers, but I think this one might be a bit more balanced.

IPB Image

You have to squint so it looks like the 6 Rads have an extra pair of wheels armata_PDT_01.gif

Just have to seal the Panthers and paint crew/add chipping/highlight the tracks/any other final bits. Yes, they should be Ds not early As.

IPB Image

There'll be some Panzer Pioneers to go with this lot for 1500.

Last two units for Early War Italians just about done. Just a final matt coat and some lead pencil work to do tomorrow.

Interesting to see the L3/33 tankettes beside a T-35 biggrin.gif

Knocked up a quick MC200 for air cover. I didn't have a Falco lying around.

I have no idea why the picture has decided to go vertical....it's horizontal on photobucket. Weird....

[edit] - oh, it's back to normal. Magic.

Late war scout platoon.

Did make the StG 44s a bit loud, but I wanted them to pop on the table so it was obvious they had assault rifles.

Cool, I've nearly finished my scout platoon but they're nowhere as good.

that's an expensive unit though isn't it? With the assault rifles, I mean.

Grenadier Scouts are cheap compared to the Panzer Scouts, but yes, CV runs close to 200 pts for 4 teams + HQ. With their bonuses I figure they're a decent chance to hang around, and late game they could be useful for an objective snatch. Being able to do their own pinning makes it more likely they can assault something successfully.

Having said that I will probably paint up some rifle/mg teams as scouts too later, just so I have a cheaper alternative smile.gif

Panzer scout are all MG teams so they aren't too bad and with the option for a P/faust.

Great thread with a nice mix of projects happening. Ah another FOW butterfly Zap123. Looks like your having fun, really like the MC200, airbrushed I assume but what colours did you use please.

It was quick and dirty....rattle can Panzer Gelb and then a spray of Vallejo Model Air Khaki Brown (71.024). The canopy framing was hand brushed in Vallejo Middlestone which is a very close match. The cowling oil cooler is done with an old and precious Ral Partha Copper.

I was looking at running a Kersher list myself and was wondering what you take in your list. At 1750 points I was looking at running the following:

Kersher
2 x Tiger Ie
Reserve Tiger Ie
Reserve Tiger Ie
1 Tiger II
1 Hetzer
Veteran Grenadier Platoon w/2 squads, 2 Panzerschreck and 2 weapon teams

6 platoons 1750 on the dot.

Pretty close....I run two Hetzers and then the vet Grenadiers with 1 squad, 1 'Shrek and 2 weapons teams. Also 6 and 1750. I like Hetzers with Tiger Ace skills smile.gif
