Sarmor's 15mm tanks and other vehicles
« on: October 17, 2019, 07:12:53 PM »
I've decided to snap some photos of my small collection of painted WW2 vehicles and share them here, hoping it might inspire me to paint some more (I'm terribly lazy when it comes to painting). So here they are:

Panzer II, Panzer IV and Stug III for fighting in France and Russia - painted for a competition on a Polish forum. All three are from Zvezda, with stowage made by me or taken from BF/PSC kits.







And my earlier AFVs:

Finnish KV-1e, converted from Zvezda's KV-1 with L-11 gun (the later kit with F-32 wasn't available yet)


Late IS-2, Zvezda with added handrails on the turret


Late T-34, Zvezda with added handrails


T-34-85, Zvezda with added handrails


SU-100, Zvezda


Tiger II, Zvezda (had to buy it secondhand - looks like FoW players bought them all!)


KV-1S, Battlefront with some additional stowage


Finnish Sturmi, converted PSC model


Next on the painting list are some late war German AFVs, cause - believe it or not - none of my usual opponents has any (except a single Panther), and we need some to finally start playing What a Tanker! regularly.

Looking good.

Thanks for sharing your photos.

I'm looking forward to giving those rules a try too.

Thanks! :)

I have already played WAT a couple of times, even ran participation games on three conventions. It's great fun, as long as you don't mind random games - sometimes you can do everything you want, sometimes just one or two things you have planned, and sometimes nothing. And sometimes your tank explodes after taking the first hit (but the games usually are so short, you can play another one and this time massacre your enemies).

New addition to the collection (and to the German batch which I want to paint next) - Sturmpanzer IV, the newest kit from Zvezda:



(Sans Schurzen.)
Really nice model, though getting the barrel in place is a bit tricky - but it moves in all directions!  :D

Armour looks great and some interesting modifications.  Nice to see that Zvezda Brummbar. 
Might have to get one or two.

Pre-Christmas gift from me to myself.  :D
Last 2019 kit from Zvezda - the M3 Scout Car. 17 parts, but it's easy to build. As with other Zvezda wheeled vehicles, the axles are somewhat fragile, so I'll try to reinforce them with some plasticard.
It comes with a tarpaulin, but the interior is actually quite decent. No crew or machine guns though, but fortunately I have some spare M2s and M1919s from Battlefront kits. I also managed to buy some Soviet halftrack passengers for the crew, but I'm still waiting for them to arrive (that's holiday season for you).
