"The Panzer I's Design History Can Be Traced To The British Carden Loyd Tankette..."
This pair of 10mm metal German Panzerkampfwagen I tanks used to sold by “Pendraken Miniatures” as Code GR77 - Panzer (2). But nowadays appears to have been superseded by a much more detailed multi-piece product under Code GRV1 - Panzer I, Ausf. A. Incredibly, these tiny models were ordered as part of a large 'Battle Of Moscow" project I was working on approximately twelve years ago for "Blitzkrieg Commander", and were only recently discovered when I (once again) searched through my 1/150th scale backlog for any Early World War Two units.
Having super-glued the armoured vehicles onto some 30X40mm plastic bases, and simultaneously discovered that one of the Panzer's 7.92 mm MG 13 machine guns was hanging off, I gave the two 'stopgaps' a couple of coats of "Vallejo" Neutral Grey. The duo were then doused in "Citadel" Nuln Oil, before being dry-brushed in (more) "Vallejo" Neutral Grey.
Copying the colour scheme I felt had worked so well on the special purpose vehicle 101s when I originally painted several of them over a decade ago, I subsequently treated the light tanks' wheels/tracks with a combination of Gunmetal and "Citadel" Nuln Oil. Lastly, having taken the time to carefully 'pick out' their shovels with "Vallejo" Heavy Sienna and Gunmetal, I also added a single German cross onto each Panzer's hull using a transfer taken from the WWII German Insignia and Swastika sheet by "Decal Details".
Sticking with both "Pendraken Miniatures" and my aforementioned Early War project, I have also pigmented two of the company's old Panzer IV tank sculpts - namely Code GR200 -Panzer IV D Short 75mm and GR9 - Panzer IV F2. These aging sculpts also appear to have been replaced by GRV13 - Panzer IV D, short 75mm and GRV15 - Panzer IV F2 respectively, and were painted almost identically to my Panzer I armoured vehicles.
Finally, I have started working on a mounted commander for my 15mm 1st Florida Infantry Regiment by "Warlord Games". This plastic horse rider is from the Nottingham-based manufacturer's Black Powder Epic Battles American Civil War range, and is surprisingly the third identical sculpt I've put a brush-tip to since I first got my hands on a free sprue of miniatures with Issue 397 of "Wargames Illustrated".
Furthermore, I've actually got another primed 'carbon copy' of this figure waiting in the wings, to be used alongside a metal model of Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson as my Confederate army's General. Unlike my other mounted officers though, this horseman has been temporarily super-glued upon a wooden stick, as he'll later be attached alongside "one of the most gifted tactical commanders in U.S. history" on a large(ish) thin-lipped 40mm circular base instead of the 30mm ones I've been using.
