It was usually a mix of US and British field dress with French uniform components added to it. Seemingly, there were units still using as much of their 1940 uniforms as they could in 1944, pride prevailing over practicality.

Quite exact !

Just for information, the illustrations on this link are for a "what if : and if France had continued the war"

two books published to date. Just uniforms projects according to the authors ; ). Very funny especially firearms

like Garand M1F rifle, MAS 40 rifle, ARAL 41 submachine..?? ;)

Their paratrooper dress project is very average...;)

Yes, the uniforms in the link are (largely) hypothetical, but I found it amusing how the authors thought French troops would look if the war had continued with France not occupied, or from the colonies. In some cases, it wouldn't have been far from the real situation in 1944, with the exception of somehow not being able to find a replacement for their old helmets :)

Boy - the pressure of providing a weekly update...!!

It's all going to sound a little same - same.

Testing continues and we have tweaked a number of scenarios this week based on feedback. Thanks Rick B for your latest versions!

We continue to test the 'new feature' and as usual we find 'unnatural' ways to use it. Smile  This feature is cool and will spawn a lot of content after release as well.

I've been 'supervised' to get further appropriate period graphics so like the last few weeks we will showcase some new artwork. This isn't all that's happening, but is probably the most 'visual' for posts like these. From next week I'll start to show a few of the scenarios that are included in game.

Graphics this week have focused on fine tuning items that were done last week as well as big update for the SS.

Firstly here is the finalised British infantry. We decided we didn't like the previous 'new' image. Like all images below, old is on the left, new on the right;

Here is the new SS. The first group here are the Tank Battalion commander and the various panzer grenadiers. New on the right;

New bridging engineers;

And here is an example of the repainted engineer. It shows the progression from black and white photo to the unit that was used in Kursk to the change in uniform and repainting for Normandy. You may need to right click and view in a new tab to see this image full size;

Very, Very, nice!

Thanks for sharing!


RE: Panzer Battles 2 - The Official Teaser Thread - ComradeP - 09-26-2015

I've been wondering since release why the Pioniere guy was wearing a scarf in summer, but his neck was just still black and white it seems.

The current bridging engineer looks like the man with the iron mask, which could always be recognized in a stack, but the new guy has its own charm.

Good job painting, too. I'm not an artist, but I certainly appreciate good artwork when I see it.

I don't believe it's a scarf but the Pioniere had had a head wound.

I'm pretty certain its a bandage...

On the back of his head, yes, but his neck is also a different colour, which had me wondering.

It looks to me like a scorch... i had a schoolmate that when was a kid had an accident with boiling water and he has in his arm something that looks very similar.
