1943: Battle of Kiev and Operation Sting


 Finished up the diorama for my "Battle of Kiev" Bolt Action German Army. Hoping I can lead it to more victories than what the 4th Panzers faced that November.



 This gem came from a Painting War magazine, top notch sculpt.
 Enemy at the gates inspiration.....

 "Get me those TPS reports!"
 3 man weapon team bases. All are magnetized for kill counting...

 The puppy has +4 penetration in close quarters combat. Also fires a mean russian LMG...
 The German Mario Brothers, just reminds me of those bricks you smash...
 Explosion modeled folks.
 Medium mortar made from a bazooka piece.... one of these days I will buy the actual mortar kit for an army....

 NCO "Badass". Nothing can stop him.
 Dead tank commander... maybe it would have rolled better if they had a live commander....
 Mist cloud....
 German MMGs line up for the Russian inexperienced horde....

 Pretty Bofors ready to go

 Panther 187's 2nd confirmed kill, another French tank...
 Hot tank on tank action. Late Night Operation Sting....
 Awaiting the USMC advance.
BARs and shotguns make mince meat out of even the toughest ambush order.

Not to blame dice....but lets just say those 3 bricks will not ever be leaving that hotel trash can... Time for a new dice order. Panthers don't not kill stuff, bad dice rolling doesn't kill things.... the new German national rules rock and I can't wait for 'Tiger fear" for these big cats. I really want to get these guys out more but I fear the hobby bug has bit and I am again torn in a new direction for a new army.... gonna keep it in the German family though.
