Seeing Kelly's Heroes when I was a kid led to two things; a lifelong love of Donald Sutherland and an affection for Sherman Tanks.
So I am pleased to share with you my first painted miniatures for WW2, 2 units of Shermans.
Here they are just finished and weathered:
And here they are in daylight.
In terms of markings it's all freehand; records suggest that most tank crews in Normandy removed the front star as it made a great target so some show then being partially obscured and most of then are missing it entirely.
There is a mix of Battlefront resins and Plastic Soldier Company kits here; the PSC ones are substantially better, if lacking in the heft that resin gives.
Next, some Wehrmacht infantry.
