Something I found intriguing when I first started collecting my 15mm models for Flames of War in the Wayback Times of 1st edition was that you could just take enemy vehicles in your army, and call them “captured”, and it was alright to do so. This intrigued me after playing so much 3rd Edition 40k around those days that I decided to take the most game-breaking, overpowered, cheaty thing possible for my Afrika Korps army. The British Universal Carrier. I swapped out the crew, puttied on some “flags” to act as vehicle recognition drapes (rather important on the captured vehicles) and got to painting!
And then, like every other part of that army, bought and started so long ago, they were never finished. I did a fair bit of the work on them originally, but in completing them recently, I did need to go over every part of both models in some way or another, and gave them a new upper level of highlighting and lower level of shade. As a pair of completed Mechanical devices, they also qualify for Mechanismo May – which is good as my stuff for the month’s challenge was looking a little shy once again.
