Hobby Update: Crusader Squadron complete!

Covenanters in action
Hey gang, what's going on?   I've been ultra busy since early December, but FINALLY got some paint onto brush, and more specifically, some Decals to models.    I finally managed to finish ultra-highlighting my last unit of Crusaders, and have put on my decals.

Two units of 3, HQ unit of 4 Crusaders


2 x CS Crusaders, 2 x Crusader IIs.  My HQ is a converted 'Covenanter' tank.

2 x Crusader II, 1 x Crusader III.   I need spare plastic turrets in case I want to run all-Crusader IIs (and in Early War, I will need the older turret model)

Same thing.  I have 1 extra Crusader III turret if I want to make these guys my armour-hunters.  Spearhead them into a forest closer to the enemy and plink away at 28 inch range, AT-9.


Lots of stowage.

Covenanter hull is an A13 MKIII Cruiser tank, with an old resin Crusader turret w/ 2pdr gun.  I've added fuel tanks from the T-34 kit, and lots of stowage.


Found my Desert Rats decal sheets that I bought like 5 years ago!!

Whats kinda sad is that these Crusaders were the first Flames of War models I ever painted.   You can see the old paint jobs from 2011 over here:   its only fitting that I finish these models, almost exactly 7 years to the day :)

Anyways, nothing too exciting, but my new place is coming along,  Coming Soon:   A Friday Night Fights at my place!!! I know you guys just can't wait to see my lousy terrain placement :)

  1. Beautiful paint job! Love it. Performance wise not the best tanks but they were amongst the best looking. The Crusader tank was my first ever Airfix model!
