My first Challenge related post and first
entry having moved house in the first week... and only having picked up a
paint brush for the first time since the move last weekend!
combining this Theme entry with my own current focus (Gunuary!) and
sticking with the models I'm now a little notorious for (British WW2
Armour). As such my entry consists of a battery of 4 x 25pdr armed
Sextons SPGs. While they are artilley, they are 'Armoured' artillery!
four guns are from 2 Pulk Artylerii Motorowej (2nd Polish Motorised
Artillery Regiment) of the 1st Polish Armoured Division. These are to
join my 24th Polish Lancers.
usual with my 15mm models, I've done my best to add the correct decals
to these vehicles. These are mainly from Doms Decals. I couldn't find
many pictures of Polish Sextons, so had to just do the best I could with
the decal placement.
The vehicles are 15mm Sextons (BR172) from Battlefront and will be used in Flames of War and Battlegroup.
model has been personalised with stowage, radio aerials have been added
and the 3 crew painted. Basing has been done in my normal style to fit
in with the rest of my 'Operation Totalise' forces, and I've used some
Tamiya Weathering product to attempt a dusty effect.
I ran out of time a little, and would like to add some spend shell casings on the ground around the guns. Perhaps in the future!
