Those 3 are cracking!

Not sure I knew of the Badger before - I assume its a Ram flamethrower variant?

Yes the Badger took the Wasp MKII flame system and installed it in the Ram MKII in place.of the bow MG and then added an MG turret from the Ram MKI to the old turret opening. Used briefly by the Canadians in April 45 after testing in Feb 45.

Thanks - mounting the flame thrower in the Ram would make it a lot more protected than in a carrier. But on the other hand its a lot bigger and more obviously a tank, so may get shot at by heavier stuff if its around, that might well ignore a carrier.

Completed the first figure for my Balkans/OZAK project - a member of the Croat Legion. An NCO from the 359th Division that supported Prinz Eugen in anti-partisan operations.





Like many will be for this project he is a headswop using an AB DAK MG spotter with a tank crew head to give me a generic gent with binoculars. Gone for the Mouse Grey woolen uniform as a change, and all the specific Croatian models will get this. They will then mix in with the zeltbahn clothed Germans to form the 359th for games.

The first four conversions for the Balkans project are done. All AB Figures with heads swopped.



We have two Prinz Eugen Gebirgsjäger in Blurred Edge smocks, ski caps and mountain boots with rifles, a Prinz Eugen officer and the Croatian soldier acting as liason with Prinz Eugen for 359th Division that I finished a couple of weeks ago.
