Last of the Flames of War Afrika Korps lot - and a few Yanks

Here are the remaining Pz III and IVs - plastic models by Battlefront:

 And I also picked up some very cheap PSC Shermans at a FLGS ($11 for 5?!) which I painted as well. The plastic PSC is in front - the one with the cast hull (the others with cast hulls are metals that I got from a mate - not sure of manufacturer, but they are quite crisp). So.... after picking up these guys I guess I will do a US army to fight the Jerries at Kasserine a few times... so maybe will buy some more Yanks to fill out a US army (more to come on this...)

More FOW Germans

First is a batch of 15mm resin vehicles obtained from ebay - these were cheap but on the crude side. The blue I used for windscreen glass makes the Protzes look a bit Pixar!

I also did another AK platoon and a unit of Panzer IVs. These were all done using the Colors of War paints from Battlefront

Flames of War Afrika Korps

My chum Dennis found a local guy who was selling off a big lot of the newer FOW plastics - tanks, Stukas, guns, a company of infantry, all the books and markers, paint - like new mostly in the box - about $300US worth of stuff, for $50. Wow - I couldn't resist - so now starts a new project for late desert war in 15mm. Aieee... the stuff is really nice, but now I guess I need another army to fight them against?

The first stuff to come off the bench is here:

10mm Italians for western desert

Finished off the Western Desert project in 10mm (by Pendraken) with the Italians - two platoons of infantry, AT guns and some clanky tanks.

And a few odds and ends of Brits to round out a Jock column and command.
