with Blake Coster

With the recent release of the new plastic Panzer IV H box set I thought it would be a good idea to offer some suggestions on some different colours schemes to paint these fantastic miniatures.

Below you will find a number of different colour schemes based on actual examples of the Panzer IV H serving in different theatres during World War Two.
