I had a little tank battle vs @Christian Hou her on the site. We both attended the North Africa bolt action boot camp.

We only had a few games sinch then. Been busy painting our armies, and we had both finished our armor first.

So we agreed on a little battle.

Christans army was made up from a Tiger I, Panzer III, Panzer IV and a StuG

My Army was made up from 3 Churchills Mark III, Valetine II, and a Grant

We played the standard mission from tank wars. We was a  draw in the last round, for controlling objectives. But Christan killed fare more points, so he won.

Bellow there is some pictures from our match

The two survivers !

And the entire army is done, and i really like the look of it. Its mostly made of sikh and indien troops, but a few british infantery units as well.

I consider it done, for now.

 

I think there is about 3000 point of models, if most of the army is made veteran.  I made a few pieces of Terrain aswell.

 

The bases are just sand with a light AP dessert yellow on top, with turfs that fits.

The tanks!

The tanks was basically painted the same way, as the humbercar. I was less agressive with the wash though.  I have some of the best british tanks, and a american one… well best is strong work, but I do love the looks of them all.

3 Churchill Mark III

2 Valentine Mark II

Well, i have not been posting much on this one, but im actuly done with all of my bolt action. I have taken some pictures, but not been smart enough for uploading them ;D

They are not the best painted minis, because I went for a fast paint job, but I think They look decent enough.
