with Khairul Effendy (Battlefront Malaysia)
When I first saw the units available in this box I just knew I had to paint it up.
5 Panzer IVs, 2 Tigers, 3 StuGs, an Armoured Panzergrenadier platoon, 2 8.8 guns and a Nebelwefer battery. Did I mention 2 Tigers… This box has a good mix of everything, the best Late War Starter Force in my opinion.
I decided to try something different when painting this force. I wanted it to immediately catch attention by using brighter colours, less emphasis on realism but more on a cartoony effect. I wanted it to pop when it’s on the table waiting to annihilate my opponents with style.
To achieve this I decided not to use any washes on the vehicles. And to brighten the models I carefully painted lines on surface edges. I Am very happy with how everything turned up.
I present to you Kampfgruppe Khairul!
Panzer IV Tank Company HQ
X 2 Panzer IV
Panzer IV Tank Platoon
X 4 Panzer IV.
The Starter Box comes with only 3 panzer IVs. I added another one to complete a 50 points list.
HQ of 2 panzer IVs, a platoon of 4 panzer IVs and 3 StuGs 7.5cm completes a 50 points list of nine teams shooting at AT9 and FP 3+. Show me those Shermans!!
StuG Assault Gun Platoon
X 3 Stug (7.5cm)
Tiger Tank Platoon
X 2 Tiger
Support unit – 8.8cm Heavy AA Platoon
X 2 8.8cm AA gun
Support unit – 15cm Nebelwerfer Battery
X 3 15cm Nebelwerfer
The force so far.
All that’s left is to paint the 10 infantry teams and 4 half-tracks.
