Christmas in Belgium 1944

Christmas in Belgium 1944

Postby Wiking » 01 Jan 2011

Some additions to my Battle of the Bulge / winter '44-'45 Americans.
I have a couple of platoons (RF Battalions) of the Battlefield / Blitz Airborne figs already but not much in the way of support teams, so the speed build was a good opportunity to make a start...

Figs are Kelly's Heroes from Grubby Tanks. First I've done from KH and I really enjoyed painting them - lovely sculpts & loads of character. Gun is SHQ.

The group:

57mmm AT gun / crew - should come in handy when a King Tiger rolls round the corner!? :blackeye:

Bazooka team...

...and an OP team.

I knew why I voted for your entry in the last build, but this is not a bit worse! Excellent and very characteristic paintjob! Greta work on those faces. This could well be another winning entry I reckon. :this:

Wow! Very very nice indeed mate - your best yet, perhaps.

Who makes the sepia wash? Vallejo? The shadowing on these figures is outstanding!
