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.
