The IG-18s that I have been working on whilst doing the caulk rivers are old RAFM pewter 20mm WWII blister packs. The guns themselves were in 5 or 6 pieces – the two wheels, the gun itself, the mid-section of the shield, the carriage of the gun and then I think the rest of the shield…or maybe the carriage and the rest of the shield were all one part…

They were cleaned up, glued together with thick Flash Cyanoacrylate and undercoated quite some time ago and have sat around causing small guilt trips whenever I faced the spare hobby table where they were sitting and waiting, along with lots of figures from whom the corresponding gun crews would be chosen from.

Once painted, they fitted nicely onto 40mm x 40mm bases. The Panzerfaust: Armoured Fist rules (page 11) stipulate that, as Light Guns, the IG-18 only needs two figures on its base to represent its crew. So, here they are, six based guns: and here is some of the detail:

The crews are figures from Pegasus Hobbies’ Granatwerfer kit, Italeri’s 251/1 kit, Airfix’s sd. Kfz. 234 kit and Italeri’s German Infantry.

The guns were done in my homemade Panzer Grey, with varying amounts of dust coating them.
