|German Infantry based for the "Battlegroup" series.|
|Still need to flock their personal stands but otherwise good to go. Check out those helmet covers!|
The rest of the figures, and there are many, are folded up into "team sized" stands for games like Battlegroup: Kursk, I Aint Been Shot Mum, etc. For German units, there is a 1 stand rifle section of 5, and an LMG section of 3. For Soviet units, I have a squad composed of 2 stands, with 1 stand containing the DP LMG, and 1 squad containing the Squad Leader, just to differentiate it. Still have to complete my DAK, SS, Americans, 8th Army Brits, and NW Europe Canadians...
|Soviet Platoon (+) along with all the lovely support that BG Kursk says I gets!|
|Soviet Bolt Action Platoon. 4 x 10 man squads, plus a Maxim, Lieutenant, and a senior officer stand. As a personal preference, I based the LMG team on a separate stand. It reminds me that the assistant gunner can't shoot.|
|A "horde" of Ivans|
|This was a dramatic looking stand with the Peter Pig SMG'er. This is the platoon commander for the Bolt Action platoon.|
|Soviets based for skirmish games.|
|Soviets based for Battlegroup Kursk and larger games. Each 2 x stand grouping is a single squad.|
|And onto the tanks!!!|
|The colors make all the difference in the world. This camo is "Not Chocolate Brown" and Vallejo "Reflective Green"|
|I borrowed this design from "Stokie Steve" and a beautiful 1/72 Panzer III he did and posted to facebook.|
|Look at that! A feathered edge! Like I used an airbrush...almost.|
|The Panzer III M came out okay. Not bad. Not great. But OK. Still he's done. Just need to seal him and decal him and seal him again and he's set for battle.|
|Not bad! Looks good next to the infantry.|
|A very simple KV-1 without decals right now. He'll get the Guards treatment and his "ZA STALINA" or "RODINA!" treatment soon enough.|
|Tankovy Green is a lovely color. Thanks Battlefront. I have 3 cans now for almost all my soviet vehicles, including modern.|
|My "GrossDeutschland" skirmish platoon. I am re-doing all their helmet covers. Note the LMG crew based on separate stands.|
|The Hetzer makes an appearance! Look at THOSE soft edged lines!|
|gratuitous tank shot|
- Redoing WWII German AFVs including all my halftracks (Mein Gott!)
- WW2 Infantry Reorganization Project & Skirmish Units
- Modern Infantry Reorganization Project (Team sized stands for Sabre Squadron)
- 10mm Napoleonic rebasing for "Snappy Nappy" which I cannot wait to play!
Going into a really busy 2 weeks at work so I won't have much time to work on any of this. I'm trying to get as much of the basic stuff done as I can. Wish me luck and thanks for stopping by!
PS Paul OG your Soviet Forward HQs is done and ready for post. Email me your address?
PPS David F I have your Vickers section bagged and ready to send. If you have an extra Bren gunner, I'll gladly take him off your hands standing or prone...
