|8cm GrW 34 Mortar with three crew, under a corporal.|
|3 riflemen, including an MP-44 gunner on the right.|
|Junior NCOs - note the chap on the left with the Latvia arm shield.|
|Radio operators and a grumpy-looking grenadier.|
|Officers and NCOs - (L-R: first sergeant, captain, lieutenant)|
|Specialists, (L-R) with Panzerfaust, a medical orderly and an MP-44 gunner.|
|MG42 team - again the Number 2 has the cuff-title and Latvia arm shield.|
The models are very detailed and it's been fun to paint something a bit different. They look good as a bunch which is always my main aim, rather than individual attainment. There was an awful lot of camouflage to paint which is an interesting learning curve, and even a few plain field-grey tunics to try painting insignia on. I haven't yet tried them out in battle but we have a few rules systems in the background ready to try them out.
Incidentally, these are the first models I've photographed with my brand-spanking new digital camera... although I still need a bit of practice the quality is so much better than on an iPhone as you'd expect. All units will eventually be re-photoed with this sterling new technology, so say goodbye to blurry, dark photos.
Anyway, I have another hefty Forge World order inbound in the post, so hopefully that should give me something to talk about next week. Until next time, all!
