Anti-tank? Yes please!

I just finished painting my British 6pdr anti-tank gun.  I also wrapped up my PaK40 the other day and now both my British and German armies have anti-tank gun teams added to them.  I haven't done any camo on the PaK40 yet ... I may do it ... I may not ... going to wait and see.

Before we get to the pictures ... how about a quote from Kelly's Heroes (after Cowboy drives into the barn at the beginning and crashes into a support column):

Corporal> "God dammit Cowboy!"

Cowboy> "I don't know what shit you talk'in bout boy; there aint three tanks out there, there's about 20 of them - aint that right Willard!"

Man I love that movie!  Pictures below of the gun teams.

Ready for action!

I'm looking forward to using these soon in a game of Bolt Action!

  2. Hi Jay,

    great work!
    Both ATG look great and the trapeziform bases are a good and practical way to save space.

    Cheers

    1. Thanks Monty! I went between using a more practical base or using a larger base and making it a little more like a mini-diorama .. but in the end I think functional is more important :-)

    1. Indeed ... the only way I get off my butt and do anything is either by playing games (inspiring in themselves) or seeing other people getting stuff done.
