PiP (FOW): Jumbo's and Easy Eights

Jumbos on the roll

Two FOW US tank platoon roll of the assemble line. Jumbos (Up-armoured shermans) amd easy eights (up-gunned shermans) are two very solid tanks for a late war american force. Jumbos can take a hit from just about anything the Germans can field (one even walked away from a Jag tiger hit last week) while the Easy Eight can put a hole in just about anything, For the tanks it can not take head on, it can take a smooth ride to the flanks for a better shot.

Paint wise there is not much new here. The tanks were airbrush Olive Drab, detailed, decalled, washed and hilighted I would love to figure out how to apply pigment powder for a dry look. But so far I apply a fix the pigment dries more muddy than dry.

I am planning to field these guys at a FOW tournament in the US for Tanksgving and to coincide with the release of the movie Fury but now the force is nearly done, I am thinking about building a counter list of Germans.

I used tin foil to act as a cover for the .50cal to mix things up a bit.

That is all for now, thanks for stopping by.
