|15mm "Strelkovy" Platoon from Battlefront|
|"Pumpkin-faced" NCO on this base...|
The Infantry platoon is comprised of a command stand, seven rifle stands (four of them with LMGs) and a stand of SMGs. I don't think I was supposed to end up with a stand of SMGs, and if I had thought this through a little more clearly before gluing things to bases, I believe I could have had eight or even nine rifle stands...anyways...
|For the Motherland! Rifle/MG teams for the Eastern Front|
|Here is the lone SMG stand...which I don't think I was supposed to end up with...|
|Ready for bombardment...|
There are eight 82mm mortars in the package from Battlefront. It also came with a command stand, but I have so many of those stupid things I didn't bother painting it up.
|82mm mortar teams from Battlefront|
I think this would represent two mortar platoons in Flames of War - enough to keep some German heads down. For Spearhead purposes, where each base would represent a platoon, this is a health pile of 82 mortars, probably enough to fill out an entire rifle brigade, which would have 82mm mortars attached to each battalion, with another group of them horded together in some kind of mortar battalion.
|I don't know the FOW mortar rules very well, but I'm thinking these guys could really paste a target|
Up next is...who knows? Probably more WW2 stuff....
