SS T-34 Beutepanzerkompanie finished!

And here they are! I just finished these guys. 10 SS T-34s for my mid war Flames of War SS Beutepanzerkompanie. These 10 T-34s cost a full 150 points for 10 (150 each), but they ARE fearless Veteran. Nevertheless, they were my first experiment with Panzer Grey. They'll be rolling out, turned against their former masters, ready to roll into Steve-o-grad!

Here's a great article on captured T-34s in use by the German Panzerkorps: http://www.achtungpanzer.com/panzerkampfwagen-t-34r-soviet-t-34-in-german-service.htm

These T-34s are all plastics done by The Plastic Soldier Company







Historically, by the time these were really used in full companies, it would probably be far more likely to appear in the German 3-tone, but I saw this color plate and fell in love:


(marked as SS Totenkopf winter '41)

Clearly I took some artistic license and moved the decals to the hull, but the spirit is the same.











Coming soon: A side by side comparison of a Flames of War T-34 and a Plastic Soldier Company T-34.

@jmezz- I'll just steal them and turn them back against your army!
@Hein- thanks chief
@Anatoli- they do look evil don't they?

Nice, just heard your review of these last night. I may just have to take this idea and run with it myself, soviet tanks in German Grey not only makes me smile but will make a dedicated soviet buddy of mine cringe, and that alone would make it worthwhile
