Panthera pardus




Finally my Flames of War Panther are finished! Just in time to support my good friend Tom at the tournament next saturday. And off course just in time to kill off my T-34's and JS-2 when we batttle it out at this tournament....
Originally (and in the long run they will certainly be used for that) they were intended to support my 'legion of the damned' dutch waffen ss army. And in the first battles of this army they actually fought, in mono-color mittel gelb bare skin.


The idea was to give the Panther are worn out and 'dirty' look, in the process of loosing their winter fur... 
I find it's hard to create 'realistic' damage, dirt and soil in this scale and imho it's a bit overdone.But I had a lot of fun doing so :-)

  1. Nice! You have good eyesight painting those tiny tanks. :)

    you say the effects are overdone, I can imagine up close it looks that way. But I think standing across the table they will look just right.
