The Plastic Soldier Company T-34s WIP

The Plastic Soldier Company were kind enough to send us 10 of their new(ish) plastic T-34s for review.  We are going to do a full review in the next episode of the Podcast, but I couldn't wait to show some WIP pictures!  I decided to use all 10 for a mid war SS captured panzerkompanie.  For those of you who do not know, I am a huge fan of captured panzers!  After some digging for paint schemes, I decided I didn't want to go with dunkelgelb, and instead settled on panzer grey.  I found some pictures of T-34s in use by the SS Totenkopf in gy, and decided that's where I would start.

Please realize these are WIP photos (which I don't often post), and as such the vehicles are missing insignia, weathering, and general touch ups!





And on an unrelated note, I took my first sick day today when I woke with a dreadful sinus infection.  I've basically been down and out all day, and generally pretty bummed.  I absolutely *hate* taking sick days- I feel worthless!  To cheer me up, my wife picked me up some Star Trek Glasses, and giggled as she gave them to me.  At least she is okay with marrying a nerd!  To further cheer me up she also picked me up a new bottle of scotch (probably better wait to try it till I am not taking copious amounts of medicine) AND my latest issue of Wargames Illustrated came in!  All in all, not a terrible sick day.

Nice stuff! Planning on picking up 4 boxes of these at cold wars along with 4 boxes of their Russians in summer uniform.

Those T-34s look great. I dig the flag. I mean, not the nazi part, just the model...uh. Anyway. Great Job. He..he...he

what scale are they?

The Star Trek Cups? :P

They're 15mm. A hair smaller than the BF ones, but not really noticably so.

The best thing about these is that they have both the 76mm and 85mm turrets on the sprue so you can exchange the turrets depending on what you need at any given time.

I just bought 3 boxes and have started putting them together -- I have posted some pictures comparing the size here:

i've been soo tempted to pick up a few boxes of these myself. choosing a tank that is used in such large numbers at the T34s are was inspired :)

The plastic T-34's look great - combine them with some plastic 15mm inf from the same company and suddenly starting a Russian horde doesn't seem so costly. Who sells these in the US?

Duncan said...

@jmilesr -- I got mine from Sgt Major Miniatures in the US http://sgmm.biz/index.html
