Geeze, watch those glasses! You're likely to scratch them.
Numbers 31:17-18
"Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves."

Psalm 137:9
"Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones."

Thanks. They're cheap magnifiers. Actually more protected than they look but I appreciate the concern.

Thanks. I changed my green mix to something darker. Unfortunately, you'll need to look closely in that low light to distinguish between the green and brown.

Do you all realize whatever LB shows you I will be looking down the wrong side of the barrel at?  It's almost like getting a preview of your death.  :P

Ha! Considering how many Krauts you've chewed up I really don't feel particularly sorry for you.

Those Jagdpanthers are coming along nicely LB.
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.

Lookin good LB. 

However, I'm somewhat concerned since my Americans will be looking down the wrong end of the barrel at those Jagdpanthers.  :'(

The good news is I have no army list that includes them. Grey Wolf doesn't have specs. I can proxy them for a number of rather unsettling TDs including stuff like the Ferdinand (I think - have to double check) but I've been unable to find the exact tank in my list. However, I did pick up that book with the Devil's Brigade in it. I don't remember seeing the Jagdpanther in it but will double check today when I see you.

I really just bought them because I like the look and wanted them hanging around the house. But I wouldn't cry if I found a list that included them. Heh.

I'm a bit late coming in on this one LB, but if you need any info on actual Jagdpanther units, I have a copy of Nafziger's OoB, and there is a lot of stuff in there I can dig out for you if you want.

Wow. Thanks for the offer. LMK what sources you like and I'll see if I can find them on Amazon. Thanks!

The three volumes by George.F.Nafziger are more-or-less my bibles for German OoB, and all the info is taken from German records. I'm not sure how easy they are to obtain now, and I know I had to search round a fair bit to get my copies, and that was a few years ago.

The German Order of battle - Infantry in WW2
The German Order of battle - Panzers and Artillery in WW2
The German Order of Battle - Waffen SS and Other Units in WW2

These are text only books and are chock full of unit and equipment details, covering just about every known unit, including non Germanic stuff that served (willingly or otherwise).

It also charts organisational changes and brief unit histories. They are worth thier wieght in gold for anyone interested in WW2 German Army OoB's. It also includes details of all the SS stuff, Luftwaffe ground and para formations, including Flak, and even Kriegsmarine arty.

 >:(  Grrr.... finished a couple WWII figures up yesterday and decided to spray a coat of matte sealant on them today and they frosted.  Nothing heavy but I can tell.  I checked the weather and not much humidity.  I let the figures and can sit outside for a bit before spray and then shook the heck out of the can.  They looked fine after the spray and even after drying for about 45mins.  But now I come back a couple hours later and they have a light frost.   >:(  The only thing I can think of that I did wrong was spray to heavy of a coat on them... not cool, not cool at all.
