My latest aquisitions have arrived… as I can be mad this is acceptable.
1 US inf rifle Platoon.
1 Weapons Plt (This is what i realy wanted) 4 x LMG and 3x 60mm Mortars.
1 set of extra bazookas 10 No. (Yes I wanted 10 Bazookas).
Artillery Staff teams and 2 x observers (which I didn’t have and areally handy for 105mm howitzers)
Bonus items thrown in to the deal for zip. (This gets good!)
1 xBritish Chevrolet truck.
2 x 2 1/2 Ton US GMC trucks.
2 x Sdkfz 250 Half tracks (Clean)
Finnish HMG teams x4 and Plt HQ
1 x pak 38 and crew
some 88mm flak crew (handy for modelling those extras for ROF 3)
The 2 Sdkfz 250’s will probably make up my Heavy HMG teams for Pz Grenadiers…
Good aquisition.. I’m thinking of converting the Chevrolet to a captured german vehicle of sorts.
Ok because I said I would here is my amoured squadron and support. (less the AA tanks and the comets, and the churchills…)
What we have there in total is
2x Cromwell iv, 2x Cromwell vi (CS)
Combat Platoons (x3):
3x Cromwell iv, 1x Sherman vc (Firefly)
3x Stuart v
6x Universal Carriers
Support Platoons :
2x Motor Platoon (4x M5 Halftrack, 3x MG team, 1x Command MG team, 1x PIAT team, 1x Light Mortar team)
1x Armoured Car Platoon (2x Daimler Armoured Car, 2x Daimler Dingo)
In effect there are a few more infantry stands but it seemed wrong to leave them out.
Ok so here is some pictures of my latest variation on painting splinter pattern jump smocks. They’re not great photos and the slightly glossy varnish on the older fig’s really doesn’t make them look good, but hopefully you can see the difference in wht I think works out to be a far better final product.
