Just in case my wave of T-26`s comes unstuck I have

added an Su-76 to cover the retreat.

This little model by Battlefront was a joy to make and

paint due to high detail found on metal models. I also find

it much easier to achieve better detail when only painting

one model as opposed to a mass batch.

Enjoy:

I`m now tempted to build something big enough to

stop a Tiger 🙂

15mm Russian T-26`s

The Russian solution to German armour was often not to

build something of better quality but rather to build

greater numbers. Thus my large group of T-26`s which have

the fire power of a small gnat but eventually through

numbers one will sting you.

With all those Panthers lurking in the hedge rows

it was time to even things up. Bring on the 17pdr`s.

These have a bit more markings, specifically they

are 11th Armoured Division, 23rd Hussars Regiment.

I am quite pleased with the darker shade of green

as I was worried it would come out like Soviet

green.

Panthers

Back to WW2 German tanks and this time its Panthers.

I have left off any distinguishing marks so I can use

them from 1943-45.

The paint scheme was a lot better than the Tiger.

Hardest part of these Panthers was the decals. I have small

fingers and its still murder trying to put them on.

Round about six months ago I started these 3 Blood Angels and

they have been gathering dust ever since. My recent 24hr blitz

on the scouts got me in the mood again and I finally

finished them off.

I must take some more photos when I have a spare minute.

Also I wonder why I put so much bling on these guys when

I put them together lol.

My son got these for Christmas and decided they needed to be battle ready.

Only problem was that he decided this on Thursday just gone and wanted

them ready for Saturday just gone in time for a visiting friend.

AaaaaRRRRRRRRRRhhhhhhhhhhhh

So the five man squad got a 24hr blitz and as table top ready they

are not too bad.

It can be done in 24hrs,but I would rather take a week.
