Flakpanzer T-34 747 (r) - 1/72

One of the most interesting conversions based on T-34/76 (model 1943) chassis was 2cm Flakvierling auf Fahrgestell T-34(r), an anti-aircraft tank - Flakpanzer. Also known as Flakpanzer T-34(r), it was armed with 20mm Flakvierling 38, which was a four barreled 20mm anti-aircraft L/115 gun. The armament was mounted in a turret made by field workshop (Werkstattkompanie 653) using armor plates from damaged half-tracks. Ammunition was stored in metal cases on a rack at the rear of the vehicle. It served with headquarters of schwere Heeres Panzerjaeger Abteilung 653, on the Eastern Front in early and mid 1944.

Panzer IV Ausf.H mit Schürzen - 1/72

The Panzer IV Ausf H is my favourite german panzer. I don't know why, but its coarse appearance with is truly Germanic lines fascinates me.
Although its design was considered obsolete in the later period of WWII, could however make a hard life to most allied tank crews, besides having formed the backbone of the German armoured units.
In this case the model is with winter painting, and I used it to play for many years, while still unaware of the existence of 1/144 scale and used the 1/72 scale for gaming.

Greek Hoplite Army - 15mm

I present my Greek hoplite army, composed and based to play the ABC - Arcane rules.
This army was painted about four years ago and used to play DBA in several tournaments as a Thessalian army, and it was later modified to play the ABC rules.
