West German Infantry for "Team Yankee"

15mm Panzer Grenadiers from Battlefront
More "Team Yankee" painting - these are Bundeswehr Panzer Grenadiers (two platoons), a company command team and two Fliegerfaust teams.  This is enough infantry to equip a Panzer Grenadier Kompanie in Battlefront's Cold-War-gone-hot game "Team Yankee".  The panzer grenadier platoons are small formations, so these units paint up quickly!

Another view of the grenadiers - I love the MG3 teams in particular!

The models are from Battlefront.  Fortunately these castings were pretty nice to work with, and overall these guys were a lot of fun to paint.  I liked them so much I am getting some more figures with the intent of basing them individually in skirmish games like "Chain of Command".

When you have Gepards, I'm not sure why you would need these fellows, but it's fun to have a complete force...

Of course, actual panzer grenadiers are mounted in APCs or infantry fighting vehicles. I have yet to get any new vehicles painted (have run out of a critical hobby supply related to that process, and resupply is four weeks overdue, likely being re-sent - cue venting story about Canada Customs...).  So for now, these guys are on foot, content to hitch a ride in vehicles painted by others!  No worries, as Dallas is rolling along nicely on that front!

Great looking figures Greg! I'm glad your castings were better than the Panzergrenadiers I got from BF, many were OK but lots were "not good"...

Tremendous work Greg! Love all your TY stuff but your Bundeswehr is especially amazing.
