STUGs Finished

Good afternoon,

First day of my second mid term break and the PSC Stugs are done.








And here they are in the context of the rest of my Panzers.



From the same PSC stable.


Now just gotta do the crew for the PAK 40s...


...and I can continue on those Early Archamenid Persians.

Nick

Oh, and for Robin...

I used a black undercoat, base coat of Vallejo 882 Middlestone, Vallejo 888 Olive Green and Vallejo 826 German Camo Medium Brown. Mostly 'cause they were the paints I had on hand!

  1. Huh.... I never thought of doing it over black. That must be why mine turned out so displeasing.

    1. It's an old habit - that's how I paint my infantry. Gives it a sense of depth... and helps hide bits I've missed!

  2. The look grand Nick. You should be well pleased with the result.

    I always use black as the undercoat myself. Ready to build a Zero yet?

    1. Thanks Paul. Yep, I'm glad they're done and ready for action.

      A Zero? Umm...hadn't really considered one really I seeing as I don't have any Japanese, or any Pacific forces to fight the Japanese. Gotta Fw-190 and a ME-1O9 to do....and a Hurricane to finish... :-)

    2. Actually Paul, I just had an idea...radial fighters from WW2 anyone?

  3. Thanks for the paint references Nick.. I have to admit that the 20mm Spearhead project has renewed my taste for 1/72 scale modelling (even though I'm not that great at it).. I've enjoyed assembling the tanks and aircraft for our armies... a box of T26s await assembly for the Russians..

    Thanks.

    1. Great stuff Robin! I really like the way you've done you T-34s...even if I'm not that keen on how they rip apart my Germans! Just wait 'till they face my Kiwis in Trieste!

  4. This is one of the many reasons I love Spearhead.. there are NO super tanks (or anything else). There's always an answer, and most often it lies in combined arms tactics (assuming the armies are matched in terms of period i.e. not facing 1944 Germans with 1940 Brits etc).

    So regardless of what you arre using, those T34s are beatable.. look at how well they stood up to your German armour (or not as the case may be) ... have faith and think 'combined arms'..

    1. Thanks John. I'm sure you'll be able to make yours really pop!

    1. Thanks Al. That FOW tutorial, well...that's the way I did it!

      Would have liked a darker wash, but I'd run out, and Comics only had a lighter replacement.
