Kampfgruppe Peiper King Tigers

These King Tigers are the final models I painted for the Kampfgruppe Peiper commission. The models are Battlefront’s King Tigers with Fallschirjager tank riders. I painted the models with vertical stripes to match the rest of the company. The models were really fun to paint. They have lots of nice flat panels and large details. With this platoon, the Kampfgruppe Peiper commission is completely finished.

German 8cm Half-track Mortar platoon

This platoon was both the best and the worst platoon to paint as part of this Peiper commission. It was exciting to get an opportunity to paint some SS camouflage patterns. I experimented a bit with Oak Leaf and Pea Dot camouflage. The half-track models were surprisingly fun to paint. The downside is that I had to paint three half-tracks, four infantry stands, a kubelwagen and half-track crews just for a 90 point platoon of which only half of the models will be on the tabletop at a time. Overall though, I think they are quite a nice looking platoon.

Sd.Kfz 10/5 (2cm) or How I learned to stop worrying and love Luftwaffe Uniform Blue

The Sd.Kfz 10/5 (2cm) is a Luftwaffe self-propelled anti-aircraft gun I painted as part of the Kampfgruppe Peiper commission I have been working on. The vehicle mounts an anti-aircraft gun on a half-track truck. These models were difficult to assemble but the crew were a lot of fun to paint. Read on for more pictures of the vehicles and some information on how I painted the uniforms.

Showcase: Panzer IV Js

Panzer IVs are the backbone of most Flames of War panzer companies these days. Their low points cost, overall versatility, and ability to assault infantry make them a nice option for most panzer lists. The “German Sherman” comes in a variety of flavours. For the newer lists from the Battle of the Bulge to the end of the war the Panzer IV J is the panzer of choice. I painted these 9 Panzer IV Js from Battlefront as part of the Kampfgruppe Peiper (1st SS Panzer Division) commission I am working on. Read on for some more pictures of the finished models.

Showcase: Winter Panther As

In this post I will showcase five Panther As in winter camouflage I have painted for Flames of War. The Panther models were quite a lot of fun to paint as some of the models had extra stowage, tracks, and details. The models were assembled from a bunch of broken Panthers I purchased used. In this post I will show a few pictures of Panthers and discuss the uses for them in games.
