They look great, Steve! Which lists are you excited about from Hellfire and Back? I like the Stüzpunt. I also will probably make an armored regiment and an undecided Italian list.

Mr.highseas said...

Sorry, Stützpunkt.

Everyone loves a Tiger tank, but it is really stuff like this that spotlights the cool aspects of the "Early War". Excellent as usual :-)

Btw, a bit of trivia, the cross marking used by the Germans was painted over sometime into the Polish campaign since the Polish used it for target practice with their AT guns and anti tank rifles. From 1940 the Germans used the "open cross" version.

This site contains great information about German markings during WW2.

@Mr Highseas- Oh man what list AREN'T I excited for? I can run probably half of the lists in the book now, so that rules. The British Armour is all awesome- Honeys, Crusader IIs, and the infamous BAR are gonna be a blast. I just ordered 8 more Honeys to bring me to 16 so I can do the full company.

I can do all of the Germans out of the box- plenty of panzer IIIs and IVs... might add a few more IIs. Ditto the Italians, though I don't have any fucilieri.

Seriously, I am incredibly excited about this book, I've been wanting it since I started FoW. Early War desert might be my absolute favorite period!

@Anatoli- yeah I knew that! Very funny- happened to other armies as well. The American Star in particular. I did them with the solid cross since I figured they'd be most prominent in Poland. Now if only you lived closer so we could play out your campaign!

I painted a platoon of 6 of these guys and would recommend putting a guy in each of them. The turrets were extremely tight and I had to shave them down to fit smoothly. Even still they are difficult to pop off if. The crew gives you something to grab and protects the super fragile MG's. I also put a small bead of super glue around the base of the MG's where they meet the turret. It was undetectable and it added a lot of strength to the guns.

These look real nice. They are great against infantry and gun teams. Cheap veteran assaults - love it.

I am undecided if I want to make a Crusader or a Honey Stuart regiment, Steve. Also, did you hear the Radio-Free Battlefront Podcast yesterday? They adressed why the "Browning Automatic Rifle" is so great in the tournaments. PS I know it's British Armoured Regiment.

Anatoli said...

Steven, wish I did !

indierockclimber said...

Mr.Highseas do both! I plan to :) They aren't regiments though, just standard squadron organization :)

They may have addressed why they think it's so great in tournaments, and I appreciated the fact they mentioned, but they were careful to say essentially "it's a metagame issue!" and not a design issue ;)

Mr.highseas said...

Yeah, it's our fault for THINKING it's so good. If we pretend that it's horrible, then it will be. :) And sure, I'll make both. I really like both models, so it won't be too hard.

Scary Biscuits said...

Looking good! I've got a pile of those to do sometime as well...

Looks great Steve. Your EW stuff makes me look towards what I want to do for EW. Although by the time I get to it .. the soviets should have lists and I can use them lol
