Watch the Skies!

The last vehicle for the 14th Panzer Divison HQ is the self-propelled 20mm Flak gun, you may remember the half-track version I painted which was wrong. Well, this time, I have got the correct vehicle; a Sd.Kfz. 10/4. This is from Command Decision and is another fine model:


I added a couple of extra crew, not that it makes any difference in the rules. One (with the range finder) came from Command Decision and the other was a Plastic Soldier Company driver from the German Stowage set. At least I have found a use for one of them! 


Also, having got the wrong model of Soviet gun, I rebased a spare Plastic Soldier Company Zis-3 to go in the AT Battalion of the 308th Rifle Division:


The crew came from Command Decision:



So I have now all the Russian units finished (except three trucks, which are not in the lists, but I thought I'd add them anyway...), so I just have to work my way through the German armour and guns.

The rubble that I use on the bases of these vehicles can be found for sale HERE on EBay! It comes in three colours and I use a mix of it to get the desired effect of urban rubble.


Thanks for reading!

  2. Excellent on all. I know it isn't easy to get such fine painting on 15mm. :)

    I *love* the crew guys on the AA Gun.

    1. Thanks Anna (again!), the seated crewman comes moulded onto the gun, but the others had to be added!

    3. Thank you, he came from Command Decision, their AT crew set. The gun was simply painted with Vallejo Beige Brown and Humbrol's Gun Metal. The inkwashed with Dark Shade from the Army Painter. not much to it, TBH!
