I am now fully into the swing of the 15mm part of the painting plan. So first up I have new items for my US 1944 ETO. Last year I played a large Utah beach game (Link here)
and these items are to further enhance the invasion beach items.
So I have 6 classic Sherman DD’s (taking me to 10 in total now)
More units to add to my 70th Tank Battalion for Utah Beach
Following a conversation with JamesM we found some 3D print designs for deep wading kits to add to the tanks. I was going to magnetise these so they could be removed , but in the end with Battlefronts “Hit the Beach” set being such good value (I ended up buying one and being given the Sherman's from 2 of them !). I just went with having more tanks!
So I have 4 with deep wading kits , 3 of those are also dozer equipped - they represent units from 70th Tank Battalion that landed on Utah Beach on D Day. There is also an armoured bulldozer to help clear those troublesome obstacles
|I really like these , and I don't think I have ever seen any on a gaming table.|
Nice to have something unique too.
Then as I had some M10’s spare (as you do - well I do/did...) I added wading kits to them . While they didn’t actually land any TD units on D Day itself , they just looked too coool .. so they will be in my next re run of the Utah beach game this summer.
The next lot of tanks are already lining the docks ready to make a swift appearnce
