Amidst my Tolkien-inspired efforts of late, I took a small sideroad to get a start on a German early WW2 force in 15mm to oppose my Soviets.
These three models are by the Russian manufacturer Zvezda, sold as part of their Art of Tactic series. They were kindly given to me by Steve Whitesell, the proprietor of an excellent blog with a WW2 and WW3 theme.
Zevezda kits are compatible with other 15mm models, and while they are less detailed, they are easy t assemble. For these two tanks, the track and road wheel assembly is all one part that glues onto the bottom of the hull. Easy peasy.
These two PZ 38s and the tiny tank (sorry, the SdKfz 222) armoured car make the nucleus of a recce unit (sorry, aufsklarungsgruppe) suitable for early war. I was pressed for time, as I wanted to get an entry into the Armor theme bonus round of the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge. There were some fifty entries riffing in various directions on this theme, and it is well worth your having a look here. If you look at nothing else there, go admire the talented Michael Awdry's wonderful Grail Knights homage to Monty Python.
