I finally finished my DAK Engineer Platoon for my Infantry Battalion, and the Battalion Mortars. Their transport arrived in-country with no paint whatsoever, so I'll be slapping on the basecoat tonight. The AT Company will also be showing off their final paint job / weathering this evening.
Check out the 251/7....this is the Engineers' primary ride. The assault bridge, while laughably cheap looking, is assembled out of balsa wood strips and while it won't win any awards, there won't be a gamer in the room who won't know what it is and what it's used for. Especially when I'm crossing small anti tank ditches with it and close assaulting with a +3 column shift (GHQ rules) or a ton of attack dice in close combat (BKC rules).
|DAK Infantry Battalion Mortars. I think an 81mm mortar, but it'll be whatever I want it to be.|
|Figures are Command Decision. I love the poses.|
|The Feldwebel is saying: how embarrassing! You idiots forgot to paint the side of our base! DAK Sapper Platoon.|
|PAK 38s with camo|
|The lines turned out better than the spots.|
|PionierPanzerWagon Sdkfz 251/7. cant wait to get some paint on it and get it finished.|
|The assault bridge made out of balsa wood. Laughable? Maybe. Cheap? Yes. Effective? Works for me!|
|Who wouldn't love these guys? The guy on the far left is my fav...|
