French tank minis Sat, 01 June 2013 04:55
Just wanted to find out if anyone has found any french tank minis that are around the same size as the tanks that are in the memoir series. Im looking at just painting them a blue (which i will paint the inf from the equipment pack) so that blend in with the minis from the other nations (plus i dont have the time to paint detail on all my figs)

Hay Aussie Digger,
You might try Nobleknight, they have a pretty good selection.
Most of their stuff is 6mm, that might be a little small for you.
I agree with painting the whole mini one color, saves alot of time.
I might paint the wheel on my trucks and guns.
Hope this helps you.

Those figs are perfect, I wanted some char b's aswell to use in the France campaign in vol1 of the campaign book where I could swap out the elite tank units that represent char b's and but in place the tiger tank rules for them.

Also are they plastic or metal?

Yes that's a good suggestion. I think the Tiger rule can be applied for any tank significantly heavier than its counterparts. This allows the relative application of the rule e.g. in early war 1940 scenarios and the desert.

How did you paint the models - spray or brush? I want to paint my French minis blue but don't want to cover up the detail and not all paints take well to plastic.

Miniatures are metal, brush painted with my old Humbrol enamel paints.

Ok cool, I would rather plastic but it seems only the larger scales do plastic french tanks. oh well, so I should get away with ordering 16 tanks plus 4 char b's (although i guess i need to tak into account reserve rolls) (for the Campaign)

What colour did you use,I looking at going with a blue you tend to see on french napoleonic figures (sort of a royal blue) to make them stand out from the others
