Finally and with the help of my wargaming pal and airbrush Jedi-master Alejandro, I can also present today the first of my platoon supports: a nice little Hetzer.
This is the Warlord 28mm resin model. We went for a camouflage pattern commonly seen in late 44/early 45, and I think first employed in the Ardennes offensive. The distinctive feature are the small round marks painted over the main camouflage lines. I like to play Chain of Command with these small AFVs rather than the big cats, more challenging and clearly more fun.
This photo is a 1:1 scale model :-) in the museum of Bastogne, taken last November. Look at the relative size in realtion to my friend Alfredo and notice how small this tank is!
In summary, today I add seven 28mm models (3 in snow uniform and 4 of the HQ section) plus the tank resulting in new 50 points to my Challenge score. Hopefully I will return to normal and will try to catch up some of the lost time, as I’m clearly derailed now to achieve my 500 points target.
Currently I'm working in more support assets, next in the pipeline being an assault team, plus a heavy machine gun and a mortar stands.
Beautiful work Benito! I really liked your previous winter figures, but I must say they are definitely improved with the addition of your new basework. The Hetzer is one of my favourite WWII AFVs and this example you show us here is brilliant. (I also like gaming with smaller armour as they were more prevalent and are often prove to be more fun on the table.) I love the ambush pattern camo and the commander is a great touch (I'm adding a few points for him in your total).
Well done Benito, I hope things settle down for you in the coming weeks.
