Well I’ve finally finished two 28mm Bolt Action tanks, the first one is a M4 Sherman, I am not 100% happy with the mud effect on this one, but it was my first attempt at using it, but I was pleased with all the stowage… which is mostly scratch built.
The second tank is the German Panzer IV, this one the mud looks a little better, and it also has some scratch built stowage on top ( not including a few plastic bits )
The Panzer IV also comes with two turrets, one with a long barrelled 7.5cm gun, and one with a short barrelled 75mm Howitzer giving me a couple of options for this tank in my games.
These are the first two tanks I have painted for my 28mm figures, I normally paint WW2 stuff in 20mm, so it was a first for me, they are not brilliant, but overall, I am not to displeased with how they turned out.
The only thing I have to do is as soon as I sort out some decals for unit numbers etc. I will have to put them on and then they will be finished totally.
I mainly use my stuff for battles based around the D Day landings up to around the end of operation Market Garden, this for me holds the most interest in WW2… but having said that I have been looking more at the early war stuff and some of the mid-war desert stuff as well… oh dear I might be on a slippery slope here!!
Next on the painting list for these Bolt Action forces are one Stuart light tank, and one sdkfz 222, one Kubelwagen, and one 88mm Flak gun and crew, then I need to add some reinforcements for my British, and then after all those I need to do my Americans…
