Back in AHPC IV I did a Churchill tank to support the Paras I focused on during that challenge
I lament Warlord's move away from wonderfully chunky and appropriately weighty resin models. However, I will admit that their replacement plastic kit is wonderfully detailed. I really enjoy weathering vehicles, so I tried something new with the AK Dried Mud effects - easy to use and I like the outcome, but I think I prefer a wetter mud look rather than the sandy finish. This was also my first use of decals for some time, given Alan's zealous
So no more sneering at PIATs and 6 pounders James, your Panzers now have something to fear!

Hopefully I get to lend this to my opponents more than I need it myself :-) I'm sure I have some more of these casualty figs somewhere to make more but cant find them at the moment.
That is a terrific looking Firefly, Paul. I agree with you on the reassuring heft of resin vs plastic, but progress is progress they say (and I frequently doubt).
I've not tried any AK stuff, but the effect you've achieved here looks very good indeed. I think it would be especially good for the Italian theatre, where it seemed to be much more dusty than Northern Europe. I'll also risk Alan's derision by saying the decals looks excellent and, I agree, they really help to properly finish WWII armoured models.
I also really like your 'Feeling a Bit Poorly' marker. Now, what is the story with the handprint on the rock? There must be a tale to be told here.
So, 15 points for the Firefly, 3 points for the poor bloke face down in the dirt, and 5 points for Odin as he steals the entire show in my estimation. :)
Well done Paul!
