Early War Germans
I’ve just finished a German force from early WWII for use with the Chain of Command rules from TooFatLardies. I will be using them to fight the 1940 French platoon that I’ve already started and the Russian Naval Infantry I rebased last autumn.
Well that’s the first Germans painted, a Panzergrenadier platoon. Three sections each of ten men and an HQ with an officer, an NCO, an anti-tank rifle team and a 50mm mortar team.
Each section has an NCO, two MG34s, and seven men.
I’ve already got some 1:100th scale vehicles to go with this lot, a Panzer II and a Pz 38t from Zvezda and some SdKfz 251/Cs from the Plastic Soldier Company. It will also be relatively easy to add an extra section so I can use them as a platoon of ordinary infantry. I didn’t get where I am today by letting a wee bit of coloured piping worry me.
Next on the painting table are the French.
