World War 2 - 15mm Project - Part 3 - The Germans

Well this is the painting task that broke the camels back so to speak, after painting almost 100 British with Camo smocks the roughly 40 Germans I had to paint again in Camo tunics sent me over the edge for a few weeks as I just couldn't face doing anymore camo patterns. I still have another platoon and some vehicles to do but the platoon and vehicles that I have finished will do me for now, as its plenty to play Bolt Action with.

So onto the minis, these are either Battlefront or Peter Pig and as per the British Airborne post the Peter Pig miniatures are the much nicer of the two. Battlefronts minis was not overly clear and the poses were dull in the main, whilst Mr Pigs were crisply cast with loads of detail and in my opinion were better posed.

First up the HQ elements:

Next the three 9 man squads each with a slightly different load out as regards MG's:

And finally a few vehicles the STUG & Halftrack are from Battlefront and M/C combo from Peter Pig(I still need to buy and add some transfer for these as yet):

I have currently got a Fantasy itch that I need to scratch, so the Sci-Fi and WW2 stuff is on the back burner for the moment as I concentrate on finishing my Pocketquest stuff and dip my toe into 15mm Dragon Rampant.
