Last time out with Chain of Command we used Greg's awesome Germans, but I felt I needed to get in gear and paint some of my own up.
|A German Rifle platoon, made up of a commander, |
3 sections and a separate machine gun.
|Each section has a rifle team made up of 6 men, a machine gun team of 3 men, and a junior leader. |
This section also shows the platoon commander with them.
|The Russian platoon only has LMG's in each section, and therefore less firepower than the German section. |
Even worse they do not come with a support squad for the section.
|Each section consists of a junior leader, 7 riflemen, and the LMG with 2 crew. Unlike many other nations |
though, the Russian sections are not made up of teams and must stick together.
Also completed in the last few weeks are some 28mm ruined buildings for use with my WW1 forces for Through the Mud and the Blood. While I picked them up long ago, I never got around to painting them until now. I cut some bases for these our of MDF added some sand and rubble and got to work. These buildings are a plastic set made for Bolt Action, and while meant for WW1 or WW2 games, they really can be used for just about anything.
|The set can make between 3 and 6 buildings. I chose to make 1 larger and 4 smaller ruins.|
|Based on cut MDF sheets these should stand up for a long while. I did the outer area to match my Canadian basing for WW1, and the inner area in a different brown and grey to make it distinct from the outer area.|
