These tough looking troops are based for the popular "World War II Crossfire" Rules and each stand represents 1 rifle squad, and the individually based chap is the Platoon Commander. I will eventually make 3 more Rifle platoons, with Platoon Commanders and a Weapons platoon to fill out the "1st Company" of my Crossfire Battalion. To be honest, I think the Battalion will only have 2 Rifle Companies in it with some vehicles to round it out. Though it did not take me very long at all to paint this unit up. There is a world of possibilities out there. Now I will start my Ostfront German Rifle Platoon!
I hope you enjoy the pictures. Huzzah!
