M10 3" GMC Tank Destroyer Platoon. On Ebay Item number: 190244476976.

Tiger Hunt.

I have just finished painting the Flames of War M10 GMC 3” Tank Destroyer Platoon set from Battlefront. You can check out the assembly and painting of the M10's on previous postings here on The Generals Paintbrush.

These are the first U.S. models that I have done from the Flames of War range and I have to say that I am very pleased with the results. The faces on the figures from Battlefront are improving, the first figures had facial detail more akin to Minifig and now I would rate them somewhere between Minifig and Battle Honours. Overall they are excellent miniatures and the poses and proportions are very good indeed.

Of course where Battlefront comes into their own, with the Flames of War minis, is the tanks and these models with the new plastic tracks are superbly detailed and capture the characteristics and outline of the M10 Wolverine.
