Working on some odds and ends for my WW2 stuff.  Got done up some dismounted STuG crew, some squad-filler US airborne, and a German MG42 MMG team.  Pics to follow, hopefully Wednesday.

Left to do (all prepped and primed):

     A German sniper team
     US bazooka teams (both regular and airborne)
     Dismounted USMC tankers
     A US 57mm AT gun, with both regular and airborne crew

And here they are.  1st two pics are the dismounted STuG crew (Wargames Atlantic Panzer Lehr guys).  2nd two pics are the German MG42 team (Artizan Designs).  And the 3rd two pics are US airborne squad fillers (BAR guy is Battle Honors, and the riflemen are Warlord plastics).  All 28mm.

More pics to follow as I get more done...enjoy!

Excellent stuff. That board looks great as well! It's got a nice impression of 'height' to it with the trees and buildings and so on. Big trees and nice undergrowth make for an attractive impression.


What do you make of the Panzer Lehr figures by WA?

Looking good (painting, figures, board, everything)!

We've been playing a similar La Fiere campaign with the Chain of Command rules. It's interesting to read how this plays with another set of rules. I do own FFoL BB, but haven't played a game with it yet.

Thanks.  I saw your AAR, and posted a comment.  These odds and ends (well, most of them, anyway) are getting ready to do a scenario based on the German counterattack across the causeway to seize La Fiere and its bridge.  I'll post the FfoL:BB scenario when I have it done up, and before we play it.  Of course, I'll post pics of the added odds and ends as I paint them, and I'll post pics of the game after we play it!

Overall, I quite like them.  As you can see (and as was intended by WA), they can be used for dismounted panzer crew.  The only 2 quibbles I have are...

1.  Their kit is a bit light.  Bread bag, canteen, and ammo pouches.  No e-tool or gas mask canister.
2.  The pistol holsters are a bit large. I used some spare Warlord holsters on these chaps.

Otherr than that, they look good - nice dynamic poses and plenty of head and weapon choices.

I really like SkirmishCampaigns scenario books. Much better than playing point based games. Excellent terrain and figures.

Thanks!  And I'm more of a scenario man myself.  Points-based stuff never did it for me.
