This is the first of the units, that I've finished, for the Cold War Commanders big game (defence of Hannover) coming up in September. Front row (L-R) Alpha Sqdn, Recce Sqdn, Bravo Sqdn; Middle row, Alpha Sqdn HQ, CO Sqdn and Bravo Sgdn HQ; Rear row, Charlie Sqdn, ATGM Sqdn, with LAD in front, and Delta Sqdn. Most of the Chieftains are from Scotia, with some Chieftains and the rest of the vehicles from Heroics and Ros.
Bravo Sqdn, four Chieftain platoons and a HQ stand.
Recce Sqdn, two recce Scimitar FV107 CVR(T)s.
CO Sqdn, two Chieftains, the CO and a LAD FV434 (no real function in the game but adds to the overall look)..
Four stands of FV438 Swingfires, forming the ATGM Sqdn.
These were base coated light grey, then washed with diluted Tamiya NATO green and splodged Vallejo NATO black. Ink washed with Army Painter dark tone, then dry brushed 50:50 mix of NATO green and pastel green. Thermal insulation on gun barrels is grey-green and tracks are flat brown. Exhausts are orange brown. I'm pretty happy with these although I'll probably add some clump foliage just to break up the open nature of the bases.
Right, where are those T72s?
Thanks for looking!
