Re: Tiger I

There are photos Most interesting to see them in 1945. As I understand it, production ceased in June 1944 and given the life expectation of six months I had assumed that all the Bulge Tigers were Tiger IIs and the Tiger I was essentially extinct by then. I was interested to hear an American tanker ...

Tiger I

Does anyone have sources to know if Tiger Is were used after the summer of 1944 when they were present in Normandy? I have seen it claimed that they were used in the Ardennes but I know of no written source that confirms that and I thought that in the Bulge campaign it was only Tiger IIs.

Re: Troop Quality

Many thanks for the comments. Downgrade them one level, so instead of Veteran they are just regular :geek: I think too blunt an approach. I always thought that the Command Decision approach was good. Rating battlefield competence separately to morale. So 7th AD were rated veteran, but with low moral...

Re: Revell Very Late war Panther G.

Very impressive. I am always amazed at what people can do with large models. :o :mrgreen:

I will be sticky to 6mm where I cannot embarrass myself with total painting failure. :oops:

Troop Quality

Many rules, for all periods, tend to divide troops into three categories: :arrow: Raw/Green :arrow: Regular/Line :arrow: Veteran/Elite In Normandy both the Br 7th Armoured and Br 51st Highland Divisions were considered to have performed below expectations. This is normally blamed on fatigue and war ...

Re: 28mm Armour for my son's Bolt Action Games

Many thanks. I guess it would only be appearing very late in the war from September onwards. I had an oppo 30+ years ago who painted eyeballs on his 6mm figures and I guess he would do it but I think I'll give it a miss. I just wonder when they ever got seen in this warpaint on the battlefield; I as...

Re: 28mm Armour for my son's Bolt Action Games

Impressive painting. I am not familiar with speckling on the autumn dapple camouflage but doing 6mm I guess I would not have been interested anyway. Can you say anymore about it?
