Anti-Aircraft Artillery (self propelled) Platoon


Adding to my 15mm FOW American Tank Company is an Anti-Aircraft Artillery (self propelled) Platoon consisting of 2 M15 CGMC and 2 M16 CGMC halftracks. In the new version of FOW air power is positively deadly and if your running a tank company you really must have air protection or you run the risk of being wiped out. I prefer the older air power version as I feel new version is to powerful, but others complain the older was too weak so I suppose getting the perfect balance isn't that easy.

I did the vehicles with some battle damage and had some fun with the weathering which is my favourite part in painting vehicles. I lost two crew members for the guns and looked all over, but cannot find them(Grrr). I'll just consider the platoon short staffed waiting on replacements.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Thanks for viewing!:-)

  1. Merry Christmas to you, Christopher!

    Your US self-propelled AA quartet looks fantastic. Your weathering techniques are first rate and bring out that "ridden hard and put away wet" look.

  7. Excellent work! Very mean looking vehicles that should make aircraft think twice about getting near them. Air support rules may be better these days, but so are AA rules :-)

  11. As you know I love your weathering on your American Motor Pool. Just dirty enough not to look like fresh from the production line but not so dirty as to resemble bad maintenance.

    A Merry Christmas to you and yours.
