A Tiger In Normandy

This coming weekend I plan to run a game of WW2 Force On Force at the Trumpeter club meeting. I have been developing a scenario based on historical actions of the Canadian 4th Armoured Division in St. Lambert Sur Dives, and a key part of the action was the Canadians trying to clear the village while a Tiger tank prowled around inside. Thus, I clearly needed a(nother) Tiger tank. Luckily, I had the Flames of War Michael Wittman set on my shelf, so I just had to assemble, prime, and paint it.

While I was at it, I had a couple of the fantastic TigerTerrain 15mm buildings that were still unpainted in my closet. I pulled them out and I have finished one.

I plan to have a much more thorough write-up regarding my WW2 Force On Force conversion efforts and the scenario I am putting together at a later date. Check this space for future updates.


  1. The building looks fantastic. Do you have a sheet of posters somewhere, or do you have to find individual ones you like and miniaturize them?
    I wish I was paying more attention to how you were weathering your tank. It's a great effect.

  2. I just found some posters on the internet, scaled them down, and printed them with my laser printer. No big mystery!

    Same with the tank dirt, it's just pigment powder.

  3. Really nice paint job��
