This formation makes a change from the figure-strong projects as it can incorporate a lot of vehicles. Ever found that, too many figures in the queue you really don't want to paint? I chose 10mm scale with a view to getting enough vehicles to satisfy my aesthetic needs without piling up kits or breaking the bank. The Pendraken, Pithead and Minifigs (12mm rather than 10mm) lists showed everything I was after. As a result this is probably the simplest project to start in a long while.
Chose to go for elements of the Combat Tank Regiment first with a squadron of each type using one model to represent a platoon. The models are Pendraken with their codes in parenthesis.
SOMUA S-35 (FRE 1) squadron:
In case anyone's wondering SOMUA is an acronym for Société d'outillage mécanique et d'usinage d'artillerie, the outfit who made them.
Anyway, it's off the ground. Must stop taking close-ups, all the mistakes are showing. For a light formation the DML seems well capable of looking after itself against the Third Reich. What's your experience of gaming 1940?
