A little entry this time, but a necessary one. These Grants tanks and Deacon SPG's are needed for a game I'm running in a couple of weeks time. They replace some Sherman's in an 8th Army Heavy Tank Squadron that were not available at the time of the battle I am running.
Painting 6mm tanks are pretty simple compared to 15mm and these took just a a couple of short sessions to finish off. Most of the time was spent waiting for earlier stages to dry before moving to the next bit!
The Grant Tanks for this company come in a platoon of three but I have painted a fourth to represent General 'Pip' Roberts in his HQ tank. Roberts is a Warrior and Higher Command Team and allows failed Company Moral Tests to be re-rolled... so he's a bit useful in a tight spot old chap!
I love these little fellas. The are like 3D board-game chits, especially with the sleek rounded corners and neat labelling. I think they provide an excellent aesthetic.
These eight microscale vehicles will give Lee 16 points. Great work Mr. H! I look forward to seeing the upcoming game on your blog.
