King Tigers

King Tigers, painted as part of the 505. Schwere Panzer Abteilung with the famous "Charging Knight" symbol on the turret. Models by Battlefront, decals by Doms and BF, the Charging Knight by Sentinel Miniatures: I cut away the zimmerit with a blade to place the Knight badge better, as was done for the real image in real life I believe.

The models lack a certain coherency as they were done bit-by-bit over nearly three years...first clean style, then sort of made up as I went along. I was never particularly interested in them. The original inspiration was (loosely) this King Tiger on, though mine turned out quite differently and a bit too yellow for my liking.

Some individual shots.



This one came with a quite badly damaged turret rear: my repair attempts were rather lacking, so I covered the efforts with a tarp of sorts. Tried to do a zeltbahn but that was not so successful...should have got a replacement turret in hindsight.


Suffice to say I got quite a few details wrong, but every German armoured vehicle is another learning experience for me.

WASP Flame Carriers

More WASP flame carriers, this time in a more experimental style over the previous 'clean' lot. Some areas could do with a more pronounced pin wash to bring out the details better, etc. but the style has promise IMO.

Models by Battlefront. Bits and pieces added to cover a lot of resin flaws/breakages, including the sandbags and Bren gunner, etc.

Have a great weekend.

Hummels, models by Battlefront.

Models by Battlefront, painted ages ago; maybe two years back. I needed to update with something that wasn't just text...

Yeah yeah a new post...we'll see if I can bother keeping it going. Maybe a Field Grey tutorial in the next few weeks; people have been bugging me for that one for ages.
