|15mm castings from Battlefront - late WW2 Germans|
|Fun to paint when this is your view! The sun setting over Lake Superior, at our cabin near Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. The big lake is at its calmest in the midsummer, barely a ripple when we took this photo.|
In all, a decent pile - 20 stands of infantry! Not too bad.
|Command team leads "sturm" platoon|
|German troops equipped with Stg44 assault rifles - though there are a couple of MG42 teams in there too - lots of firepower|
|Pioneers ready for the battlefield|
|Lots of panzerfausts, grenades, mines and pole charges - and one fellow (on the left corner of the front right stand) has a flame thrower|
I'm particularly pleased to have the pioneers/engineers done - I'm often preparing a game and thinking to myself "hey, messing around with minefields and barbed wire would be a good time", and the engineers add a fun dimension to that sort of game. Plus - flame throwers! Watch out!
|Panzerschrek teams - mounted two teams per base in "Flames of War" for some reason, I think a reflection of the German tactical approach? Not sure...|
These figures will be used in games of "Flames of War", but I also hope to put them to use playing Spearhead in 15mm, as well as Battlegroup and even Crossfire (an oldie that was once pretty popular with the Fawcett gang - maybe we can try it again sometime in the not-too-distant future, I hope!)
I still have a huge pile of WW2 stuff sitting and waiting for the brush - and I want to get to some more of it before the summer ends, but there will be another abrupt switch in the paint shop, as I understand the Warmaster Horus is getting impatient to begin a major assault against the Blood Drinkers, and he needs more stuff finished for that to happen...so back to 30k painting we go!
