|The Crabman cometh...|
I don't normally mount tanks on bases, but I felt the fiddly nature of the flails needed some protection. I made the base at work, from some scrap MDF. Painting the tank was interesting, as I wasn't quite sure what colour to paint it, as while it was British, it was a lend-lease vehicle, so should it be Olive Drab, or a Dark Green, or something different again? I did some research and blended a very nice colour, which then looked like Olive Drab after I applied the wash....so Olive Drab it is! Clearly, that's how all the Crabs supplied with the .50 cal./tombstone ammo can combination were painted...
|.50 cal. HMG with 'Tombstone' ammo can. So wrong that's it's right!|

|Look, I actually put transfers on and wasn't slack...|
|View from above. I am tempted to put down some nice golden sand to finish the base up.|
