King Tigers for Flames of War

My ever increasing late war German collection now has a couple of King Tigers.  These are Battlefront models and they come with both the Henschel and Porsche turrets.  This makes then rather expensive models but the good news is you rarely need more than two and usually only one.

The Henschels will see there battle debut next weekend at a local late war tournament.  I was hoping to get in a test game or two but it is not to be.






Even though I have no plans to run the Porsche version any time soon I painted up these turrets at the same time to ensure a good match.  These turrets don't fit as well as the Henschels and probably need magnets.






All in all a nice kit and they should be fun to play.  I am not sure what I will be working on next.  I just got more Napoleonic French so I should probably work on that for a while.  But I also got a deal on some more 40K Orks (that I have no need for) and I am really getting the bug to work on those for a while.

Nice big cat... cheaper to deploy now too with the recent Late Late war stuff...

They look pretty nice. Just wondering if you used an overall drybrush before the wash or did you just hit the high spots/edges? Or something different?

Randy, I follow the camo step with an overall dry brush of the base color. This pushes the camo back and helps add a weathering step. It is not as pronounced on these tanks as it is on my Stug III.
