WW2 in Miniature
One of the many many miniature wargaming / hobby projects I’ve got started on is a German late war Flames of War army. I freely admit I’m a WW2 geek so it seems logical that I’d have something from that era in my collection of games. I’m also a fan of the weird war 2 stuff and am therefore fighting hard to resist the lure of Secrets of the Third Reich stuff. Wolfenstein-style Nazi zombies? Heck yeah.
So anyway, here are my first ever Flames of War minis in tiny 15mm. The beginning of my Gepanzerte Panzergrenadierkompanie with an accompanying Tiger 1E tank. Fear the Tiger…
Never modelled at this scale before so it’ll be interesting to see how I need to adapt the painting style. Also I may have made a balls up in pre-fixing the infantry to their bases before the painting begins, and there could be some hard to reach bits. Still, I really wanted to get those bases sculpted up (out of filler, then glued sand) and I’d hate to wreck a paintjob with a dollop of basing goop!
Now to research some authentic colouring.
