French Hotchkiss H-39 Cavalry Tanks

The next installment to my 1940 Escadron de Combat is a platoon of H-39 tanks.  My plan with this army is to model the 2nd DLM at about the time of the Battle of Hannut.  Naturally, I made this decision after I had already built some tanks.  Turns out the 2nd DLM had no H-39 only the older H-35.  Oh well, per the rules they are basically the same tank so no biggy I guess.

These are very neat little models.  They have excellent armor for the period but the guns are not so good.  I am not sure how these will actually work in game terms but they are cheap enough to bring lots.

More to come on this project very soon.
