Looking good Lee, I recognise that truck! I was wondering where the Bison was sourced from, as it looks like a 3d print from the striations. The Panzer grey has come out well, as it's hard to make EW German vehicles look interesting. Decals will really help.

I'm still waiting for Rubicon to release their EW Panzer III, but it's really more for completeness than anything. I already have so many vehicles it's silly.

Oh, and the infantry gun, the Ie.IG 75mm is a must have for support choices. I am still trying to complete an entire motorcycle squad. :)

Are you colour-coding them by tufts?

Ta

The Bison and Panzer Jager are from OTP I really only ordered em cos I wanted a T35 and made up an order.
They are ok but I then got a 1/48 T35 from Butlers which is much better quality.

Prob replace them at some point but most of my Russians are 1/56 anyway.

I used a B&Q tester pot for em and think they came out ok, some decals will make em pop a bit.

I did intend to but ended up putting some markings on the back of the bases, these boys will get to play BA and may even end up in our VBCW universe.

The tufts may look a little odd in the grad and fighting on a winter table but I could always do a winter themed force as well.

Ps I very much doubt I will do winter as well.

Is this possible?

Well, I am betting several of the vehicles I have will never get on the table...

Due to a supplier kindly sorting out an error with one of the orders I now own 2 x 1/56 T35's and 1 x 1/48 T35
I think I have only ever fielded three on the table in a few FOW games certainly never in 28mm.
