WWII German News!

I have been busy the last few days cleaning the armour from our German WWII collection, well they have got a little dusty. While I was cleaning these it struck me just how much I admired the look of the Tiger I. It really has something about it, perhaps it’s the size, shape, the knowledge of it’s armour or it’s superb fire power. In short, since I was a small kid I have loved the look of these beasts of war.

A nice side shot.

A nice side shot, if you’re this close, otherwise don’t bother!

A nice oblique shot, must stop using this word…view…that’s better.

A good friend of mine painted these, he doesn’t want me to put his name up here, because he has more work than he wants at the mo’ as soon as his backlog clears I’ll let you know. He’s not cheap, but he does a great job. See more of his work here, with the Hanomags.

I have been working on the combat platoons for these brutes as well, so included in this blog are the Gepanzert squads.

I also thought I’d include some of the support platoons, such as this SdKfz 251/2 with it’s 8cm mortar.

Included in the clean up were these Panzers for our early war events. We have over two hundred early war tanks and vehicles, not including the artillery.

I thought I’d throw in a few shots of our Pz 38(t)’s as well.

38(t’s) Czech bought, or borrowed I think is the correct phrase

Talking of the French, I will be including more of an early war blog later this week. Stay tuned. (These photos have been staged in my home, so they are not “in game” as I normally like to do.)

I hope you like them.
