These models were the final two models for the second part of the Kampfgruppe Peiper commission. You can see the rest of the models by clicking on the peiper tag (or this link).
I was a little apprehensive about painting the 8-rads. The stock photos on the Battlefront website make them look like they sit quite high. I'm not sure if this is an older cast or not. These models were quick to assemble and had great lines for painting. Wheeled recce vehicles always have a soft spot in my heart. They just look so awkward.
I have two 8-rads of my own that need some paint as well. I need to retrofit my lists for Mid-War and Italy. 8-rads are a nice recce option that fits into most lists. In Late War they are especially good value. My Pumas get into trouble with their AT9 guns. The 8-rad shouldn't have that problem as much.

Thanks for visiting my corner of the internet today. I've been assembling some Malifaux models after playing a demo at Attack-X last weekend. Expect to see quite a few painted Malifaux models in the next few weeks. I've also got some Pak40s to share on the blog. I just need to decide if I will paint the last one before posting or not. Hasta luego!
