You can knock the teeny, tiny 45mm gun all you want. Last week in a desperate struggle, the heroic Red Army's own 44th reconnaissance platoon of the glorious 2nd tank Army delivered the death blow to a Stug III platoon after an SU-76 crew had suppressed it. Granted, VERY lucky rolling, and as all you "abstract" gamers out there know, a KO doesn't necessarily mean all are brewed up, but damage, suppression, and casualties are enough to knock the bad guys out.
Okay so back to topic - believe it or not, one of these tanks was painted in model master and one was painted with the cheap, krylon "camouflage colors" dark OD. After a very light drybrush in tan, I love the way the darker on turned out and will use this OD for all my Russian WWII armor from now on. Also spray ed a matte finish on them both and am overall pleased.
The TC on platoon 5 is from a battlefront T34 set, and the TC on platoon 7 is from the Plastic Soldier Company kit. By the way, both models are PSC fast builds and I'm very happy with them. Huzzah!
