Hi again all,
I’m back with another update for my Guards, this time the M10’s.
I look at these guys I always have a small pang of jealousy about how
much more fun their US counterpart is! Though the extra UK AT is always
appreciated. I often consider how worth it is the extra AT to go from 14
in overlord to 15 in MG and I don’t often see the benefit. But that is
life you have the great glass hammer, though with more access to
duckbills I do find them a better choice.
As always their other
great down side is ‘no HE’ and that really knocks down their usefulness,
as the amount of points for something with no ability to hurt infantry
is justan ongoing dilemma – but yet for my armoured recon in Overlord
they are essential as without them I have nothing above AT 10! In the
end I always think it comes down to a ratio of HE to no HE which is
somewhere from 3-4 in my head.
As for painting them, the. Eric,ex
were painted in much the someway with quick shade as the Cromwells, for
the crew (and incidentally the ones in the Cromwells too) I used the
PSC British khaki, and then added some khaki to Vallejo British uniform
It’s really noticeable when you compare them to
my old M10’s which I did for my Canadians, not only the difference in
the green (which I always felt looked a little chalky) and also the crew
with their brown violet uniforms.
Anyway I hope you enjoy these, till next time
