Schwere Panzer Company

After months of being in a state of limbo, I was just able to finish painting and assembling my Schwere Panzer force. This represents 1500pts out of the Grey Wolf book for FOW. This was also the first test of my new Paasche Talon airbrush and it came through with flying colors - I highly recommend this model for anyone's starting airbrush! 

Gepanzerte Panzer Pioneers

(Apologies for the pic above - Picasa disagreed with how it should be sized)

The Pioneer teams are a mix of Mid- and Late War BF Panzergrenadiers and are mounted on scratchbuilt city ruin bases. The halftracks are all PSC conversions with BF halftrack crew/gunners. 

The full 1500pt force

Support Units

The SPAA unit consists of 2 BF Sdkfz 7/1 (Armoured) and the Bergepanther recovery vehicle is a conversion of the basic Game Models Panther. The conversion tutorial is here.

Schwere Panzer Platoons

The main combat platoons consist of 1 HQ Tiger IE and 2 platoons of 2 Tiger IEs. All models are BF.

Gorgeous paint jobs.
Those bases are likewise very cool. Feeling futher inspired to get to work on my Brits!

I really, really like the concrete walls on their bases! I'll have to figure out how to make ones like that. The embedded pillars really add to the realism.
