20mm WW2 German Fallschirmjager Support Weapons.

Some support weapons to bolster the platoon with a couple of MG34s, 10.5cm LG40/1 Recoilless guns, some panzerfausts and panzerschreck (if the war drags on into the mid war period), kettenkrades for towing the recoilless guns.
Nearly everything is AB figures again with the kettenkrades and recoilless guns from SHQ miniatures, I think the artillery crew shells may be a bit big for the recoilless guns but I want to be able to use different artillery pieces if I have to, again painted by Ray and finished by myself (I think there may be some issue with some colours but it wasn't for the lack of research).
I will have one more post next week with more support including 8cm mortars, drop canisters and casualties.

Anyone selling a really well painted 20mm or 1:72 scale German Fallschirmjager glider or two cheaply??????:D
Pictures are the usual quality, apologies.

  7. You guys did a really great job on these. Ashamed to admit that I didn't even know the Germans had a recoilless gun, so I learned something new (for some reason I simply pictured it as a somewhat later invention, go figure). Very cool.

  23. Sorry the canteen is closed. Hope the salad was nummy. Went to the market today for Yukon potatoes so I can make more Irish Potato cakes but all they had were whites and reds. And I really fancy the yellow for potato cakes.

    Going to make some evil corn that James had.

    Num num num.

  25. Some great stuff. Good luck with the glider hunt. If you don't want to do the paper gliders from Fiddlers Green, Airfix and Italeri make the Horsa that you could build and paint as German.

  27. Very cool, What are those motorcyle tanks called?

  28. FAHL-sheerm-YAY-ger, parachute-hunters

    If the front went static long enough for all that weaponry to appear, I'd imagine the front would have to be along the defensive line of the Thames with London sort of like Stalingrad--and where does that leave Gravesend?

  29. Great painting there! I quite like the recoilless guns - it will give the FJ a bit of bite.
