Of course seeing the excellent job done on the very same last week was enough to make me reconsider I still went ahead though planning to copy the style but alas it was beyond me so I went for a cleaner tank.
They were very easy to put together and the quality can't be knocked. I also like they give you the two turrets allowing you to paint them up as the 76 or the 85. I painted up both turrets giving me well three free tanks.
I also had some fun keeping back six Russian infantry from my earlier submission as I thought they would make great tank riders so these were painted up and left ready for the tanks.
I also took a heated pin to the turret side for a near miss, hope the crew have a few aspirin between them.
I have not made up a kit in years and last challenge was the first time I have painted a tank in twenty years so very happy to get into making a model or three. I intend to buy more tanks t allow me to game early and late war. I also need more support weapons but need to work out what I need before buying more.
Here is the three tanks changed to T34/85's those large turrets and long barrels really look menacing! Points wise six foot figures at 4 points each and two tank commanders upper torso makes 28 points but not sure on the T34's and extra turrets.
From Curt:These look fantastic Ian! I like the somewhat weather-worn, faded green that you've come up for them. Of course, my favourite has to be the tankodesantniki spilling off the T34 to engage the Hitlerites. Dramatic stuff and great work!
