Good start, Normandy is a focus for me this year, a few more batns of infantry and more tanks for allied predominately.

Cheers

Yes, Normandy is a good starting point for such projects. Plenty of bits to choose from.

Progress so far. Well not a lot, but I decided to clear a bit my painting desk from stuff I started.



NCO is ready to lead a squad or to be used as a single mini for casualties. Churchill Mk III (if I'm not mistaken) will still be in service by summer 1944 if my research is correct. Altho don't quote me on that :)

Till next time!

The latest video from the Tank Museum is of their rare as Hen's teeth Churchill III. The one and only Mr David Fletcher discusses the turret, track guards and main gun. Tread Heaven!

I was in the realm of dwarfs and other magic creatures for the last few weeks, so not a lot of WW2 painting was done during that period. But after a recent chat with a friend about some gaming ideas (I blame you frank xerox of that! :D), I got the kick to get back on track.

So latest progress, Stug III got some wash application. It was the first time I used enamel wash, and I'm quite positive about this experience.



Depending on the tactical situation, I hope to finish Stug this weekend.

Cheers,
Seb

Not the most astonishing progress, but it is still better than nothing.



I need to tidy up tracks and road wheels. Then paint some details, and it will be ready for duty :)

Looking good. I do like a stug, straightforward and practical. I’m glad to see you’re achieving things, I find even a little, tangible progress always helps my overall motivation and hobby momentum. Keep up the good work.

Looks good and there’s not enough stugs around, Jpz 4s and hetzers but not enough love for the humble Stug

Thanks, lads! I feel that there should be more Stug III on the tables. I will need to get a few more at some point, but I'm also tempted with Pazner III N as a support option:D 

Yes! I did find that even 15-20 minutes every day can make a huge difference.

I started painting the first squad of Grenadiers, mostly to get the feel of colours and decide how



Sorry for the photo quality :). Bases are temporary only as it was part of basing experiment. I will stick to 25x25mm bases for basic infantry.

A bit distracted with all the fantasy minis again. But I'm as always I'm jumping from one topic to the other. Instead of finishing the germans, I when for some brits :)

First HMG, then PIAT team and few spare minis and the British platoon (or Polish in the West?) will be ready.





Cheers,
Seb

Another vote for IABSM for company level gaming.  CoC for platoon level.
