Each of these objectives are single piece resin models. The barrels are separate pieces that must be glued on. Although the single resin piece makes sense for an objective, I do wish the turrets were separate pieces because these models would look good as a CO or hero.
As you can, see I gave these objectives some extra "flare". The addition of smoke and flame to both models really lights them up. The smoke and flames are made from clump foliage glued to a loose frame. Once glued, I brushed on two layers of white glue before painting.
I gave the smoke on the Panzer IV J a twist at the end in an attempt to make it look like it was swirling in the wind.
For the Panther, I tried to make it look like it got cracked right in the turret and make the smoke billowing from the top. Consumed in greasy flame, this Panther sits wrecked inside a ruins of house.
I have almost no legitimate complaints these models and think they would make a fantastic addition to any army or terrain collection. I give them 9 out of 10 Flaming Panzer Donkeys. If you own any of Battlefront's wrecked tank objectives or have scratch built your own feel free to share on the WWPD forums.
