King Tigers

Hi Guys,

Just finished off (well, mostly finished, apart from spare tacks and the tank commander) some King Tigers. These are Battlefronts non-zimmerit version.

I decided to try my hand at a hard edge camo, using blu-tack as a masking agent. I'm satisfied with my first attempt, and learnt quite a bit through the process.

As on most of tanks, Doms Decals were used. The quality of these decals are great, and the Balkenkreuz are perfect, unlike Battlefronts versions, where the white parts seem to be off centre.

Anyway, these guys will be for Schwere Panzer Abteilung 506, hence the turret numbers positioned around the Balkenkreuz as this configuration was particular to that battalion. Company number before the cross, vehicle number after.

Hope you enjoy, and thanks for looking.

Table Layouts

Hi Guys,

Just a quick post to show you some of my recent table layouts I've recently used for games.

The grass mat is from Games Workshop (the cloth backed variety, though not sure they even sell this anymore), as is the modular hill
The rivers, roads, railways, ploughed fields, walls, orchards, and 3 of the houses are from Battlefront
The other buildings are from Kerr & King
The trees and hedges are home made
The wheat fields are cut from a door mat.

Hope you enjoy, and thanks for looking :)




Hi Guys,

Just finished off a pair of Sturmtigers for my Germans. I'm quite pleased with how they turned out, though I doubt they'll bring much to the table performance wise. But, it might be nice to have something to scare my opponents out of buildings  ;)

The Mobelwagons in the background are near completion.

Next up will be some King Tigers, then it'll be the Luftwaffe's turn, with an Me-262 and Fw-190.

Cheers, and thanks for looking.
