This is my British Cromwell company. The models are all metal or resin and I have based them all - I find metal is too likely to chip, particularly around the tracks, if left unbased. Resin often depends on the type of resin, with some quite brittle and hence safer when based. However, in this case I have based the resin vehicles more so that the whole unit is consistent than for protection. There are vehicles from different manufacturers and I have more about the different makes in my WW2 Manufacturers page above.
First some pictures of the whole force: A HQ platoon, 3 platoons and some support vehicles:
Some pictures of the basic Cromwell. These are all Arrowhead Miniatures (metal kits). The decals are from Scale Specialties - see my post on applying decals.
The HQ platoon has a Close Support Cromwell (Centaur) as well as the normal Cromwells. The Centaur has a 95mm short barreled howitzer. I have actually enhanced the gun by putting a short piece of plastic tubing on the end as I did not feel the gun provided with the model gave the right effect. Also in the HQ are two Crusader AA tanks. They are all Arrowhead.
The first support vehicle is an armoured command vehicle. This is a Pithead model and actually one of only two resin models they do (all the rest of their large range are metal).
Next are a couple of Cromwell engineer vehicles - an armoured recovery vehicle and a dozer. Both are Gramodel resin kits - although I added some extra superstructure detail around the crane on the front.
Finally a Scammel Wrecker, again a resin model from Gramodels.
Here is a size comparison of the Arrowhead Miniatures Cromwell and the Gramodel variants. The Arrowhead vehicles are 1/144 and Gramodels are 1/150 but there is only a small difference and it is only apparent at all if they are right next to each other.
Some close ups of the buildings. They are both 6mm TimeCast, the first is the Small German Farm and Outbuilding from the Eastern Europe range and the second a Dutch church from the Western Europe range.
