A small update...
Iíve decided to go back and redo the first batch of cars I painted. The camo just didnít look right to me so that will be redone.
I experimented with some new patterns Ė one with very small dots of paint splattered all over a yellow basecoat and one with large patches of brown and green separated with yellow.
I went with the version with the large patches (as thatís much easier to do and stands out better on the tabletop) and did a test with it:
Itís still lacking the windows, a bit of pin-washing and, of course, the base. But what do you think?
On an interesting note, rumours have it that the next book for FoW will contain the final version of the 653., fighting on the Western Front with Jagdtigers. Now, thatís going to be interesting Ė from the stats Iíve seen they look like absolute beasts!
All thatís needed now is a dedicated StuG company for midwar Ė then I can have all three versions of this particular unit.
On the other hand, my regular opponents has just handed me his late war books and declared that heíll be playing desert war only from now on. Iím actually tempted to put this project on hold for a while then and get back to working on my early and mid war DAK force so I can play against him.
