Ben here with another US update. I have painted up all the Chaffee's from the Cavalry Group Box Set I got from Christmas.
One thing I tried on these which I liked was I painted the tracks German Grey instead of a metal colour. I did this as I find painting grey a fair bit easier than painting metal and as I heavily weather the tanks not much of the track colour shows through so as long as it's a dark colour that looks about right it doesn't really matter.
|Name||Mobility||Front||Side||Top||Equipment and Notes|
|M24 Chaffee||Light Tank||4||2||1||Co-ax MG, Hull MG, .50 cal AA MG.|
|M6 75mm gun||32"/80cm||2||10||3+||Smoke, Stabiliser.|
The Objective was a lot of fun to paint! I'm really happy with it!
'Snowing' it up was an interesting process as too much snow and whats the point of having such a nice model on the base (a cheap crap one would have worked just as well), but too little and I thought it might look a little out of place. I think I got the balance jut right.
So there you go, I hope you have enjoyed reading this post, me and Dave got a game in with my Chaffees vs his Fallschirmjagers, which will be posted in a day or so, so keep an eye out.
Well thanks for reading and until next time
