So our Pacific theatre game is getting there and for the last few weeks here's what we have been up to...
P.S. Storage Tip:
If you are stuck for storage and you like he taste of Ferro Roche chocolate - the empty boxes are a great fit for 28mm LVT's...LOL
So with them safe in storage we moved to Sherman tanks....
First we needed to find a M4a2 Sherman. The Warlord Games version has all the extra armour on it....so we couldn't use it for our island.
There are some great online pics for some great inspiration...especially the Tanks in Hell book.
So the first tank I printed was actually an logistical error ....I actually thought the Zippo Sherman was used in our battle - but I found out later it wasn't. But it still printed out well and I can always use it later..
Below: This is a picture of my self made decals with a black background (which can be deleted). I will print these and apply to the tanks.
Below - I then also did some "swimming" Sherman's for game markers as the tanks head towards the beach.
Note the usual rear snorkels kits were not used in our battle. Tanks were "thought " to be going in at low tide.
