Tired of mean-looking German panzers? What about a frumpy, dumpy little pre-war French tank pressed into German service? I’ve very slightly tweaked this Blitzkrieg Miniatures Somua S35 and painted it for service with the Axis.
One of the things I love about 20th Century wargames are the tanks and vehicles. I’d much rather be painting an AFV than the infantry to go with it (although strangely I prefer playing games with plenty of infantry over tank-heavy ones…) One thing I try to do is get maximum bang for my buck […]
