Finally got these to the final touch-up stage, another hour or two and they'll be done. I tried to use Airfix or Matchbox figures where possible
Here are the mortars, x1 for each battalion
MMGs, each battalion included x5 machinegun platoons. A British unit of the same era had just one
I used Vallejo paints. The German colour looked a bit unusual at first, but once you get the highlights on it's actually quite close to Field Grey
Classic poses. The grenadier is one of only a few figures with a weapon sculpted on its back
I now have two regiments for the 1939-1940 period, and have started planning one for 1941-42
One battalion all Airfix, one all Matchbox, and one mixed
I probably could have finished these over the recent holiday break but got sidetracked with other projects.....as we do!
