Hi all another little painting update,
Trap teamsLike the FJ's in bridge by bridge the Westfalen have trap teams, the problem is these guys are trained so assaulting with them is distinctly less appealing
To make these guys I bought a tank hunter blister and also recovered 4 winter volksgrenadiers from the 'unused lead pile' - trying to paint them as I did the volksgrenadiers was very hard as my style has changed in that time. I however followed my old instructions and they fit in with the army.
I will admit these were a pleasure to paint! I painted them as I painted the ostwinds and 234/4's - I also did some sponge chipping before weathering them with PSC products. I went stowage mad on one, whilst placing tank riders on the other (in winter camo to fit the rest of the army) - I really love how little bits like this really bring the unit alive.
Finally these little beauties - they're PSC - it's been some time since I've bought from them - last time it was churchills - I'm impressed, their quality looks and feels so much better than the shermans I purchased from them so long ago, and whilst I'm not as keen as I am on Battlefronts T-34's they are better value for money I think.
Ok these aren't for Westfalen, but another little unit I worked on, I picked these up at the welsh open, they are one of those units I really like, breakthrough guns and a half decent front armour. They're a poor StuH42, but still very effective - I think if you link these up with the flammpanzer you have a very effective anti-infantry German tank force.
Anyway I hope you enjoy!
Anyway I hope
