From ScottB: 15mm WWII German Pak40 Anti-Tank Guns (78 points)


Scott here adds another excellent unit to his growing German force for 'Flames of War'. This time its a group of Pak40 anti-tank guns along with their command element.

From Scott:

I can add them to my Grenadiers or Panzergrenadiers, in a couple of formats, either as a divisional support option with all 4 guns, or often as a company weapons platoon of 3 guns, but then I can include the 4th spare gun as an upgrade option for the 15cm nebelwerfer platoon, that I am now halfway done.

Hopefully I'll have it done by the deadline. Might even squeeze in a 8cm Mortar platoon too...


These are 15mm Battlefront castings.


This group will give Scott 78 points. Very nice work!

  1. Nice looking Paks. I don't think those rods should be red and white though. The red and white poles were for artillery surveying. For AT guns, they'd just be barrel cleaning rods. I made the same mistake when I painted my British 2pdrs.

  2. Damn! I hunted through heaps of internet images - some had shown them stripey, others not. I wasnt sure which way to do it... oh well! If you are sure I can paint over them...

  3. Very nice mini's. I thought they were red and white myself but now I'm doubting myself.

  7. Great stuff. I have always wondered - what are those red and white bars on the trails of the guns?
