When does washing make things dirtier?

When you are applying a 'wash' to AFVs. A few more of the ex Gerard vehicles, two Pzkw IVs, two Czech 38t's and a Czech 35t. These had two black washes applied, and were then lined out with a light grey. The Czech tanks were (I think) only used in Rommel's 7th Panzer Division in France in 1940, and weren't mixed with Pzkw IIIs. The Pzkw IVs [provide the heavy tanks for the armoured regiments.

The 35t

Pzkw IV
A little progress at a time. It's term break next week, so maybe I'll accelerate activity, and even get these guys onto a table for some games. No promises, mind you.


  1. The 38t was used in the 7th and 8th in France and more divisions during 1941 on the eastern front. I can't recall which divisions used the 35t off the top of my head. I have some organisation notes at home. You are correct they did not have PzIIIs but did have PzI, PzIIs and IVs.


As yet 'unblooded' on the table top

I've been ill in bed for a week (first sick days off work in 25 years!!) so there's been no painting output, and obviously no games...
