1940 French - other vehicles

Continuing the French theme - here are some other vehicles that I will be using:

First up - a Laffly W-15 TCC - by ACE Models with a Battlefield Miniatures crewman:


Next - a couple of S-Model Renault UE Chenillette that I use as my AT gun tows

Next - a Cromwell Models (well I'm pretty sure it's a Cromwell) Laffly V15T with an AB Figures crewman

And finally my slightly dodgy use of a Hobbyden Citreon van (post war) as an early war Radio Truck!  Well it looks that part to me anyway...

I guess one day if I ever get the correct vehicle I'll sway this out... one day....

1940 French Armour

Once again it's been a while, but I have a few thiungs "completed" now - so time to start showing mor stuff!

Today it's some French Armour.  Everything today is from the S-Model Hotchkiss H-38/39 kit - which makes a lovely little tank.  So here they are:

This is the platoon commander's tank (hence it being crewed).  The commander is from AB Figures French set.

These are the other two tanks in the platoon.

And here the whole platoon is together.  I understand that the colours I used, along with the trench kit, show these tanks are fairly late production models.

In my one and only game with these guys, I needed a single additional H39 so I painted one up in a more "typical" French style.  I have about 3 more of these to paint.
