DAK Army 15th Panzer Division 800 points

We're running an 800 point Tournament on the 75th anniversary of the 1st Battle of El Alamein. So I've decided to collect a themed force of 15th Panzer division DAK. I've got a Kubelwagaon, some Kradshutzen and a Truck to add to this force and I think it will not be as effective but nicely themed. I can always fall back on my Russians for ultra competitive play. I've also got extra enthusiasm as I'm particpating in Bolt action Facebook group competition to pledge to paint something in the Month of June.

We Bare Bears of Konflict '47

My Soviet Ursus Infantry as inspired by Cartoon Network's We Bare Bears. At 22 pts each these are a steal, only need 3 more for an effective squad. I've played them once and they can tear apart Nacht Jager but run at the first sight of flames.

We so cute, we so cuddly.

In Soviet Russia, We Bare Bears rip you to shreds.

Grizz, the leader of the pack.

Panpan, in touch with his feelings.
Ice Bear will rip your face off.

All right back to my place vor beer and Vodka, Comrades!

The Bull Mammoth

I bought my first K47 Russian Mammoth this week and was kind of disappointed looking at it and thinking this would be so much more awesome if it had 6 legs. I present to you the Bull Mammoth (Бычий мамонт). Thanks to Warlord Games for providing the extra legs free to complete my conversion for this Tank walker. I'm contemplating putting an even bigger gun on top because of the increased stability. This thing is even more unstoppable because if it loses 2 legs it can still walk across the battlefield. I'm think maybe a T54 with legs might be the next Medium walker I could attempt.
