They ran into Kersher and his Tiger friends. To be fair, there were some pretty lopsided dice rolls going on...I rolled Rapid Fire for the King Tiger and the 2 tank Tiger platoon, while the British 25pdrs failed to even scratch paint and the Cromwells and Challengers whiffed lots of shots (even with SIF).

Actually..just remembered Ross was using a Hells Highway list. Comparing to Market Garden, he's probably doing himself out of 40 or so points....and +2 AT on the Challengers! That might have made a difference! I reckon throwing in an Achillies platoon would be a good idea. They are cheap, though only 2 shots and no SIF.

Most of my gear is packed away, so updates will be sparodic for a while. Occupied my time with a little arts and crafts action:

Afraid that is the only colour primer I had handy armata_PDT_01.gif

Easter painting, an Ersatz Panzer platoon. Wanted to make them look old and tired, but not too messed up.

IPB Image

Good for LW HG too I suppose.

My Westfallen SS force I took to the Briscon event. 1625 points.

IPB Image

Traps teams. They either did pretty much nothing, or they killed ISUs and T70s.

IPB Image

I went with the cheap 105s rather than Nebs. They did deliver some decent harrassing fire, but I think I'll stick to Nebs in the future. Most of my paints are stored atm so I didn't have any red for the waffenfarbe. I'll fix that later.

They look nice Zap!

I did not get a chance for a good look at them while I was playing at Briscon.

From a distance they looked amazing though!

I went up against Al's Fallschirmjager with Von De Heyte (? spelling) and his Panzerfaust trap teams.

Those bloody trap teams chased my Churchills all over the table and ended up killing a couple of my tanks.

It was a great event! Hope to see you next time we come down from Toowoomba and get a game.

Cheers,

Allan

Painting has been heavily curtailed due to impending house move, but some work on 653 Schwere Panzerjager Abteilung continues.

Last of the tank teams block painted, inked and decalled. Matt coat this arvo and then weathering for the lot of them.

IPB Image

one of the cooler field conversions this battalions' field workshop knocked together. This is a really old BF hull I recycled and unfortunately the ink had nowhere to go on the engine grilles, so I'll brush them in after it has its matt coat.

IPB Image

Bergepanther mit Panzer IV turm. Another of the field conversions, this one used as a command tank. You can take it as a 2IC tank if you take the Tiger (P) command tank option.

I was happy to find the correct hull number in the right colour, though it is off a Tiger 1 so a twee large.

IPB Image

The PDF list gives you the option for a Panzer Recon platoon too.

Very nice. I need to do some research about weathering.

Got to finish getting another army ready to face the Cromwell horde....probably still too many big tanks armata_PDT_01.gif

Some StuHs to go with the Elefants. I figure the 2IC in his souped up Bergepanther will hang out with these guys.

IPB Image

I tried to brush paint these and wasn't so happy with the result, so I went for a really messed up look with the weathering and added some foliage to break things up. Photo taken on a dinner plate in the kitchen biggrin.gif

Rush finish for the 653 SchPzJgAbt gear.

HQ 1IC and 2IC tanks:

IPB Image

IPB Image

Flak conversion:

IPB Image

Retro edit...an Elefant:

IPB Image

And some Panther Ds I did for a mid war list, but covered my bases and put Lehr division markings so they can pinch hit in the 'Devils Charge' digital lists. They were hit hard and have been officially dubbed the Dagpanthers.

IPB Image

I lightly dusted the muzzle breaks on all these with some black pastel powder. Weirdly it is coming up pale grey in the photos....

Waiting for some bits to finish my 21st Panzer army, so a small change of direction smile.gif

IPB Image

Mass black undercoated, then AK Olive Drab dark base and then my first attempt at colour modulation with some Olive Drab light base on upper parts of turrets and hulls. Probably most noticeable on the Super.

Minor homage to Don "Wardaddy" Collier:

IPB Image

Must be after the fight with the Tiger as the logs are missing from the sides.

Starting to (finally) put the finishing touches on the US armour. I find it far harder to weather than the German Dunkelgelb.

IPB Image

Started with the tanks - HQ and Combat platoons.

IPB Image

The metal gun barrels I got with the E8s were shockingly mis-aligned. I managed to replace a few with plastic ones but you can see a couple of the metal ones. If I had have filed the joins flat the barrel would have wound up rectangular in cross section. I think I might need to re-ink the engine grilles, but otherwise I think I'll stick with that.

And for a change of pace, my next project smile.gif

IPB Image

Doing a combo French Recon/Foreign Legion army.

IPB Image

IPB Image

I already had some R35s for my Australian Divisional Cavalry, and Panhards for my Dutch, so the three projects all overlap. Not a hyper competitive French recon though as the combat slots will be full of Schneider combat cars for a bit of fun. armata_PDT_14.gif

Started blocking the rest of the force, though still waiting for some Foreign Legion heads.

Spent some time this morning with the airbrush:

IPB Image

The Luchs didn't quite come out as I pictured it in my mind, but once they are detailed and weathered should look ok. Hard to make out the brown on the French but once I line them and take a decent photo it should be more apparent.

Here's the rest of the French Recon horde waiting for some brown camo splotches.

Did a bit of detail painting yesterday and gloss coated the gear I finished in anticipation of decals and washes.

IPB Image

This morning I converted a PSC PzIV hull I had leftover from a conversion into a wreck to go in my ruined tank workshop.

IPB Image

Cut out the hole for the turret and added a basic interior.

IPB Image

The plan is to make a Stalingrad/Berlin table, though things are progressing somewhat slowly armata_PDT_07.gif

What colour green are you using on your French tanks. I've done mine with the sand base coat, but I really like the green base you've done. I'm hoping to have them up and ready for next week.
