Whos your marder?
Finished my DAK Marder IIIs. I have used different transfers to differentiate the two platoons. One has the 15th panzer Div marking on the side, the other I've added the Afrika Korps Palm leaf symbol. May not be accurate but its all about knowing which platoon is which on the table top!
I don't intend to use all 8 at once but it is good to know they are there, just in case. My typical DAK force these days uses 6 of them (2 platoons of 3) and 4 carri. I am really regretting not taking that list to the worlds.
One day I really must get a photo of all my marders- I think I now have at least 4, and sometimes a lot more, of most versions.
And the two bison- still my favourite looking DAK model and on table they don't perform as badly as I first thought they would!
And the command tank for my Ostfront Panzer IIIL platoon, the German hero (Rettemeier). I never use warriors but like the model and thought it suited for the command panzer III. Unfortunately I gave it a GW Devlen mud wash near the end of the painting process and it came up a bit glossy, so will probably have to repaint it.
