|On the prowl.|
Well, it's not exactly a secret, but I do love the look of most German vehicles. From Sd kfz 251 halftrack's, 8-rad's, Panzer III's and the lovely Jagpanzer IV/70's, I can't get enough of the sleek look and sharp lines they show off. And while the good ole Panzer III takes top prize as my favorite German tank, I do have a soft spot for the biggest tank of them all, the Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. B.
So when Battlefront recently released the new Konigstiger, sans-zimmerit, I needed to get my hands on it. The problem was I already have three Tiger II's, and those three Kingtigers have never seen the board as a group before. Because I, as an mech infantry player, rarely ever use the big cats, and certainly not three of them. But whether or not I'll use a unit in FOW has never stopped me from buying beautiful miniatures, just ask my Sturmtigers and Nashorns. But to make room I did sell off one of my old zimmerit covered Kingtigers to a local player.
|Tiger 115, ready to see some action.|
|I've been adding fuel drums to a lot of my recent late war German tanks, the big gas guzzlers.|
|I choose to go with the ambush pattern camo for this tank.|
|I added a few stowaways just for kicks.|
Here they are in their Henschel version.
|The Commander I 01.|
|They have been through the ringer before.|
|I've added hearts to all my Company Commander tanks, so they are easier to recognize.|
|Good old Tiger 112.|
|It hasn't had an easy time.|
|That is a tough sight to see for any Allied tanker.|
|Where ever they're going, they're going slowly.|
