Hi guys

Painted the regimental flag for the 103rd kampfgruppe, named after my old unit, will start painting the command squad tomorrow hopefully, I have also been working on 3 Lamen Russ, need to pick up another turret, 1 will be a Vanquisher, 1 a punisher, and a standard Lamen Russ battle tank.

I've never been able to paint flags, hell, I struggle enough with minis… But those are so good, I'm tempted to try and knock up a banner for some of my little guys.

Excellent models . WW1 British tanks ? Who makes them ?

Hi Tyler, give it a go, it's not to hard, i use pencil to draw the design, then paint with my normal acrylic paints.
Hi Zrunelord, they are Airfix 1/76 plastic models, the turrets are from the 1/76 Airfix M113 fire support kit.

That's pretty awesome.

How do they "size up" with your 15mm troops? Picture Possible?

Awesome! Good idea going up in scale to match up with 18mm as "Heroic" scale, I think!

Thanks for the info Gunner,can't wait to see them next to a 15mm fig.They would be great for orks also with a few bits added.Or as troop carriers if one was to remove the turrets & sponsons.
Banners can also be drawn/painted large scale & then reduced on a colour photocopier as this gives much crisper detail than most printers.

Thanks guys, I'm a little old fashion (you can read that as just old) so not to good at designing stuff on PCs and reducing it, much easier to just paint it.
I will take some pic with figs on my next update.

Looking sharp. Do those flags get pasted onto the side of the tank, or will they be flying from an aerial antenna?
