Normandy Tetrarch -1/56 - Warlord Games


Tonight a welcome change from Dunkelgelb, British O.D in the guise of a Normandy Tetrarch.
Another popular kit from Warlord, and i'm sure i've painted more than actually saw any action. This one however, has the correct AoS marking (Its amazing what details reveal themselves once you've finished painting). Minor mods on this one, tarps and towing wire, and a commanders bren gun on the side of the turret. The track sections have been moulded in a way that facilitates removing the spaces between the road wheels, which is worthwhile doing. Maybe the next one i'll get to "open up".



Still have 28mm and 20mm stuff up on ebay, check out the link to the top right >>>>>>>

This has always been a favorite of mine. I once attempted to model the entire Armoured Airborne Recce Regiment for Flames of War. Lots of little Tetrarchs. I've loved the little tanks ever since.

You really did a fantastic job on this. I didn't realize Warlord did one... I may have to look into getting one.

I thought that all the Normandy Tetrarchs had the Littlejohn adaptor or were the CS version with 3" guns.

Hi Will, answer is i'm not sure and my references for this one are tucked away, so i'd be interested in confirmation. My get out was the commission wanted the standard barrel :o)

Mine (in 20mm) is with the normal 2 pdr barrel, so I can use it in Madagascar but I'd use it in Normandy as well as on the table it's not that obvious from a distance.
