Enjoy? -> Yeah!  :D

They look great, their ride is superb and the bases look superb. What's next for them? Some panzer support, arty or more infantry?

Thanks!  :D

I have a 2nd truck painted, and built a PaK 3.7cm, plus have an idea to give them a number of vehicles. I have a PzII, an SdKfz 222, and a PzIVD that will work for the period.

More work to be done!

Good for you, good for us :) Just remember to post pics ;)

What rules are you going to use them with? And interesting to hear what kind of terrain you have for them, as well.

Rules: Bolt Action.  ;)

Terrain is being worked on concurrently, I like the idea of Arras, the classic armour engagement of the early period, and I had a look at some buildings on the Lard Island website this week. Lots of posters and signage on buildings!

Terrain is on the table. I have some of the Warlord ruined hamlet buildings. They are good - but benefit from some filling and extra work. There are some gaps and 'hmmm' fit issues. Bit of putty, sand, glue, and I think they get really good. Have to see how they paint up.

@ Harwood - thanks! I'll have the trucks out when you come over to game with your FJ! :)

Very nice work. I think they look quite characterful, and that truck is great.
