WW2 20mm Painted Greatcoat German Squad.

I have added a 4th squad to my early war German platoon and I feel these guys are wearing more appropriate clothing for the south coast of England (definitely for the Soviet Union), models are from CP models and are lovely except some of them come in pieces and with my hand shovels this caused some light swearing for a little while!

  15. Another great looking set of minis, Fran. I wish I could paint like that. I can't wait to see pics of the table when you start playing Operation Sealion. I imagine it will be stunning.

  18. More beautifully painted figures, Fran.

    A bit of light swearing you say? I can just imagine you saying, "oh drat!" or "botheration!" or "flipping heck, that hasn't gone to plan!" Heh, heh, yeah, perhaps in Bizarroworld!

  20. Yep, if I go to England I would have to wear similar clothes to avoid freezing to death. Great work again Angry.

  34. I swear, my mind just gets blown every time I look at pictures of your work. What a talent you have!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. These are fantastic! I really like the fellow with his arms crossed over his chest as the sculpt really conveys him being bloody cold. Well done!

    I assume these guys outside of the Challenge?

  42. Very cool, I have a plastic set here of American and German both in greatcoats from Revell for the Battle of the Bulge that would mostly fit in, some have the later war weapons of course. It's that Bulge time of year right now. On the evells only the MGs need any assembly.

    Some have hoods instead of helmets. The winter is making me wonder about British winter and what would be good for Norwegians of 1940. Thought there was an old Lassie movie set there, I notice they don't show those like they used to do.

  43. yeah those do look excellent!
