Lt. Colonel Creighton Abrams

Lt. Colonel Creighton Abrams of 4th Armored, 37th Tank Battalion fame. A Warrior in Flames of War from Battlefront's UBX32 box set. The box provides models for Abrams' last two tanks, an M4A3 (76mm) "Thunderbolt VI" and an M4A3E8 "Thunderbolt VII", and a decal sheet with marking for the two mentioned plus "Thunderbolt V". Again, done in a similar style as previous vehicles.

M4A3E8 "Easy Eight" Shermans

M4A3E8 "Easy Eight" Shermans, painted in the same style the previous Shermans I did a while back. Models by Battlefront; new plastic .50 cals fitted and a few plastic tank crewmen.

M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbos

M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbos, painted in the same style the previous Shermans I did a while back. Models by Battlefront. New plastic .50 cals scrounged from the BF British Sherman V plastic kits: they are fantastic.

An entire division's allocation of Jumbos, which naturally you can field in a single Flames of War Company...thanks BF.

Shermans all week...

German Half-tracked Weapons

PSC 251 Half-tracks and conversion bits with some scrounged Battlefront figures for crews. Nothing special, mostly a test-bed for the camo scheme before I applied it to something more important.

Grossdeutschland Panzergrenadiers

Painted for a friend's Grossdeutschland Panzergrenadier force, the first of two platoons though the second will look pretty similar.

Battlefront figures from the GE723 blister with a few others added in: I just painted them. Options for plain, Panzerknacker- and Panzerfaust-equipped Command Teams.

Some smaller group-shots from different angles to show details better.

Airlanding 6-pounders

More from the war files: some 6-pounder anti-tank guns from my Orne Bridgehead Commando/6th Airborne force.

Battlefront figs and guns; 3 crew per base as I was short, and they fit better that way. A couple of Commando figs (in Bergens) painted as Airborne to get some Red Berets in for aesthetics...they obviously secured the Bergens in a "trade". Dismounted tank crewman painted as airborne without Denison Smock for the Platoon Commander.
