The Battlefront Flames of War Tank Destroyer box set UBX31 contains four resin and metal M-10 tank destroyers in 15mm scale.

There are options to add extra armour to the turret to upgrade it to top armour 1.

After deciding to build it with the extra armour and the smaller turret counterweight (not the duck-bill option) I also added an MG to the rear of the turret.

Other parts in the set are some metal stowage items (I fitted one piece to the rear of the command tank to identify it). Also there are 8 small magnets that allow the turrets to be magnetised to the chassis).

After that, painting was straightforward using Vallejo’s Game Color Olive Green. Once dry the vehicles were dipped with Armypainter. About 20 hours later the dip was dry. I used GW matt varnish to tone down the glossy finish. Four quick light coats across each side were enough to achieve this.

Finally, I added some of the decals to the tanks. One job I have not done yet is to add some camo netting in a roll behind each turret to add some flavour.

Here are the pictures…
