From RossM: The Last Post - 20mm WWII German armour (38 points)

As the final hours of the Challenge tick by here is the final post for my contribution to this years challenge and as promised its the WWII German Armour in 20mm from Britannia Miniatures.

From left to right above we have:

  • SDKFZ 140 Flakpanzer 38(t)
  • PZKW III J with short 50 mm barrell
  • PZKW II (f) - Luchs

All three vehicles were painted in the same method starting with a base coat of Vallejo Mid Stone, followed with a liberal wash of Nuln Oil from Citadel. Then it's wet brushing the base coat back on then to finish with a dry brush of Foundry Moss C to highlight.

Here are some more pictures of the SDKFZ 140 with decals from Skytrex.

Next we have the PZKW III

With all three vehicles opted not to have camouflage on them and whilst I enjoy painting Late War German camouflage I feel the finish on these three vehicles is good without the detailing of camouflage.

The stowage and extras on the MK III really make the model.

Lastly we have the PZWK II (f)

Both MK III and II together.

As this is the final post I make the tally a grand 36 points for 3 20mm vehicles. This takes my overall total to 304 which just passes my Challenge target for this year.

In preparation of next year's challenge I would like to put forward this tune for you all:

Looking forward to seeing your brush work again next challenge and I will sort out my donation to charity very shortly.

Cheers, Ross

From Minion Tamsin:
A cracking finish to the Challenge for you Ross and congrats on passing your target.
I do like the painting on these - as you say, they look damned good without adding camouflage. I'm going to add a couple of points for the stowage.


  1. 20mm is such a great scale for WWII skirmish and you've done a cracking job on these models Ross. I particularly like the stowage on the Mark III.

    1. Thank you for saying so Curt. 20mm is my preferred scale for WW2 gaming which is probably to do with Airfix plastics ☺

  2. Lovely looking german armour!
    Best Iain

  3. Very nice; I particularly like the Flakpanzer.
