I spent a couple of evenings during the week trying to get my WW2 Germans looking decent for the table. I have used them over the last couple of weeks but really let the side down by not having them painted up.
I’m reasonably happy with the end result and they pass the 2 foot wargaming inspection though I may have gone slightly overboard on the tufts and scenic basing.
This should give me at least three sections for my German Rifle platoon with a few heavy weapon options. I’ll need to finish a few more light machine gun teams to be able to consider using them for Panzer Grenadiers.
On the vehicle front I recently experimented with some old Corgi Stuka Hanomags by removing the missile boxes from the side of the vehicle to convert them back to the standard Sdkfz 251Halftrack as the infantry carrier for the infantry. The first attempt was reasonably successful so I’ll probably continue with the remaining three to finish the platoon.
Pictures to follow.
