I'm impressed as well. Lovely painting, also with your consistent basing and palette they actually look like they belong together.

Beautiful work Piers. My only negative comment, is that I think if figures are based, vehicles should be as well.

I'll add my WOW to all the others that have preceded it!

Great stuff, AB figures look as excellent as always, even if a few poses look ‘familiar'. Love the worn and chipped look on the helmets.

Great stuff. One of the few theaters I did not do in WW2 20mm….hmmmmmmmm

Just Brilliant

Must agree- fantastic work

Only 2 Panzer IV's Piers?! Surely you need more than that. :-)
Interesting you have gone with the early Panzer II with split hatch as I thought DAK II's were either new build F's or rebuilt earlier marks uparmoured and with cupola added.

If you are all done until AB releases more then I implore AB to get busy! As always amazing.

PiersBrand19 Mar 2018 7:16 a.m. PST


Yes you are correct, almost all Panzer II in Africa were F's or C's with retrofitted cupolas. I have one pic early on in the campaign of a split hatch in North Africa but I imagine it's a bit of a rogue one… When I did them I was under some budgetary restraints and as I had some S-Model Ausf c they got used… I shall have to replace them at some point though as I like the cupola version.

As for the Panzer IVs… May add one more but I've always preferred the Panzer III to be honest! :)

Thank you all for the comments… and judging by a recent conversation with Tony at AB, I suspect desert will be added to again soon… still lots planned!

Noticed you had some of the wheel/track armored cars (I believe passed through the Austrian army prior to "unification" – cue the Song of Music…)

Who makes them?

Just love the quality of your painting! Well done!

You're starting to show some potential, Piers.

SgtGuinness09 Apr 2018 4:46 p.m. PST

Absolutely amazing!!! Beautiful work, as usual. You've got more detail on 20mm's than I've seen on most 28mm's.

What, no Tiger? evil grin

Beautiful work as always, Piers!
