Here are some images of a recently-completed Hetzer, or more correctly, a Jagdpanzer 38(t) (Sd.Kfz. 138/2). Ever since I started WW2 skirmish gaming, I have been slowly adding to my Heer force, which acts as a ready-built OPFOR for my Partisans, Soviets and South Africans. Given that using 28mm figures to game WW2 encounters is fairly new to the local gaming groups, the German force has seen plenty of action. This models was rushed into a game a month or so ago with just primer and a Dunkelgelb basecoat, and then withdrawn from service to get its camo finish.

I enjoyed the challenge of trying to replicate the early factory-finished scheme, which stands in contrast to the more common sprayed redbrown/olivegreen armour patterns.

The kit is from Warlord games: Its built pretty much out of the box: I only added the skirts, periscope, antenna and a one piece of baggage.

  1. Fantastic! I have resisted this model due to the inaccuracies but you have done a great job!
