Dude the dingo's are a rear engined vehicle with a stubby front.
Ps they still look good

Von Trinkenessen – first, thank you for pointing that out. As an American, I guess I was less familiar.

Second, we played Saturday with them and nobody knew!

Third, as someone who tries to do research and get it right….AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUGH!!!!!!!!

I just went downstairs and removed the crew, repainted the lost pain, and will correctly replace them.

Again, thank you!!!!

Mark, please post pix of the reworked dingos.

A very easy mistake to make. British stuff is a bit weird at times. Glad to see it did not knock you back, keep up the good work. Do have a look at the ARCHER too.

Bear in mind that they are as likely(er) to remove paint backing into or through something as going forward. (An activity a successful recce unit would do.) Look at the backs of Tigers and Panthers. Just scratch up the fronts a bit.

Thanks all – I just fixed the post and yes a successful recon unit would know how to back up! And while I had heard of the Archer, I did not appreciate that the gun on that faced rearward. All good stuff.

Formerly Regiment Games – here is the updated post with reworked Dingoes: link

As promised, here is the BATREP/AAR with my changes to the rules for the scenario (which now have Dingo crews properly oriented). I am getting more bocage/hedgerows and adding more US Shermans, an M18 Hellcat, Brit Cromwells, a Challenger, and Achilles to the menus. I am planning on running this at BARRAGE.
