Some Tiny Tigers finished!

All right!  Some pictures of the Tigers.  I only spent a few hours on the whole batch tops, so obviously I would have like to get more time with them behind the magnifier light.

We were not even sure if we would be able to get primer on them, much less paint, so this whole thing was really a grand experiment!

You can get an idea of how tiny these things are compared to the RAV 6 x 6!

There was a surprising amount of detail on the miniatures, especially when you consider how tiny they were, and that they are meant for a board game.

Once all these figures are painted, it will enhance the experience tremendously!  It was already quite nice with the simple unpainted versions.  Rick is going to paint some of the regular Panzer tanks in this late war scheme as well, so that we have variety.

There are also a few missions that call for special elite units, or something with a special designation, so having some other vehicles in a different scheme should be fun!

Also, I hope that we can get some of the expansion packs so that I could do some Eastern Front winter versions, or Battle of the Bulge, etc.

After painting 'full size' vehicle for so long, this was a very different ball game all together.

You do have to avoid the temptation to disregard these things for their details when you first start painting them.  The longer I worked on them, the more details I discovered!  I easily could have spent hours on each tank.

Uh oh!!! Looks like somebody just wandered into some serious trouble!

Is Oddball at it again?
