No posts on this blog for the last three weeks as I have been busy painting 20 x vehicles and I have to say I am glad it is done as I felt like I was never going to get them finished.
Here is a picture of them after being assembled and some of them primed ready for painting.
The vehicles are 28mm and most of them are from Warlord, with a couple from JTFM Enterprises and one from Empress Miniatures. Also there is a Corgi die cast conversion.
A group shot of them painted.
First up is 5 x Warlord plastic Soviet T-34/85's, a resin SU-85 and the die cast Corgi scout car conversion.
I had a T-34 already painted, which you can see in the pictures to make up two troops of three.
Then we have 3 x Warlord plastic Cromwell tanks and a resin M10 Wolverine and Achilles Tank Destroyers.
A picture of my British vehicle collection so far. I still need another Firefly, one each for my Sherman and Cromwell troop. I also need some more recon vehicles and HQ/Support vehicles.
Late War German. 3 x Warlord plastic Stugs and a resin JTFM Stug (JTFM on right in picture). 2 x Warlord plastic Panzer IV's and a JTFM resin Marder II. The Tank commander is the Warlord plastic which comes with the set and the guy with the machine gun is resin and which comes with the JTFM Stug along with more crew and a pile of stowage. I have added extra stowage to all of these vehicles.
Late War German collection so far, again I still need to add to this with a Panther, more recon, HQ and support.
As in the first picture, a group shot of my collection so far, minus my Early War German.
I got the idea of the Corgi Die cast armoured car from Richard Clarke of 'Too Fat Lardies' fame, who converted one for his 8th Army collection. You can pick these up off ebay for about £1 plus postage and they are a good match with the Warlord version as you can see in the pictures. I decided to use mine for the Soviets using a couple of Warlord plastic figures and some extra stowage.
For my Brits in Modern Afghanistan collection I have added an Empress Miniatures Scimitar to go with my Warrior which you can see in the second picture.
And to finish, the usual action shots.
Hope you like.
