    My Battlegroup Forces

    Hi everyone!
    I've recently purchased Battlegroup Kursk and Overlord books and I'm slowly growing my army. So far I've finished Panzer III L from Revell and T-34/76 from Plastic Soldier Company.
    Here are the pics:

    I'll be using them in my first game. Most of my troops are now assembled, but they still need bases and some mold lines cleaning which I'll hopefully do over the weekend.

    Re: My Battlegroup Forces

    Lookin' great man. I have a box of the PSC Germans and I really like them. Finishing smaller scale figures is more satisfying than finishing larger ones for me and since they only take about half an hour to finish I get a ton of enjoyment out of them!

    And damn! That's a lot of plastic! How many points of Germans, Russians, and Brits will you have?

    Not sure yet, my first goal is to get around 300 points of Russians and German so I can play my first battles with them

    Re: My Battlegroup Forces

    Hey guys, sorry for lack of updates but i was a bit busy with other stuff.
    I've finished two squads of Soviet infantry, The green one is painted with vallejo pain for Russian uniforms in ww2 and the light one is painted as suggested on PSC box. I'll probably paint the rest of my squads in the green colour, not sure if that is historically accurate but I just like it more.


    Ive assembled 6 shermans for british battlegroup, this will be part of my First Polish Armoured division.


    I've also primed 2 Panzer 3s and Cromwell

    Fell free to comment.

    So I've finished my Cromwell today and after putting varnish on I've noticed that paint started to falling off, it only happens in this particular place. Any ideas why did happened? Never had problems like this before :confused:

    You put varnish on the whole tank but the paint only fell of there? Weird, I've never seen that. What varnish are you using?
