German WW2 Artillery part 1 - 105mm battery with AT guns

The first of my posts on German artillery. This is a 105mm battery with some heavy anti-tank defense.



The artillery are Arrowhead FH18/40 105mm Howitzers with Arrowhead crew. The guns are in FOW log gun emplacements - despite being for 15mm they work very well for 10mm. I just added some flock to the emplacement bases.






The artillery tractors are Sd Kfz 7s by New Toys Millennium and just given a wash and dry brush.



The command stands are Arrowhead figures and the map table is made of some crates from Takara and the map is an actual WW2 campaign map, scaled down and printed off. The K├╝belwagen is a Takara model with the detail painted on and given a wash and dry brush (the only thing for me with Takara is that while the basic painting is fine the detail is rarely painted well, so for the K├╝belwagen the seats where not tidy and the canopy was just grey).




Part of the anti-tank defense are a couple of 88mm Flak guns. They are behind FOW sandbag entrenchments, for these I needed to repaint the sandbags and then wash and dry brush. The guns and crew are Arrowhead. The bases have shell crates which are Takara.







The final part of the anti-tank defense are a couple of Pak 43 88mm. The guns and crew are Arrowhead. The entrenchments are FOW again and these log versions just needed some flock added.



The RSO Ost tractors are Pithead.
