Panzer IV/70 (V)

I have been working on the old painting queue lately, and I finally got around to the Battlefront Panzer IV/70s I had sitting around. This unit is pretty good for Flames of War - kind of a poor man's Panther. Clocking in at 150pts each, they are a pretty good value for the cost. You give up some armor front and side, a turret and some mobility for the points break.

Again, I went for my standard camouflage technique. I did go for smaller patches, which I like for these.

D'oh! I forgot to rust the SPARE tracks on one of these - AND I forgot antenna -- man, I'm slackin'!

To avoid silvering of the decal on the Zimmerit, I applied the decal with water as normal. After that, I took my hobby knife and made holes all around the numbering in the clear areas. This allowed the decal solvent to get behind and solve the silvering problem.
