From AlanD - 15mm German Infantry Zug for Battle Group Barbarossa (66 Points)
Phew! Just got these finished, along with an undercoat on the lounge room ceiling. Some of the PVA on the bases isn't entirely dry, which explains any white patches you can see.
Here is a platoon (Zug) of German motorized infantry from 1941 for use in Battle Group Barbarossa. Figures are From Plastic Soldier Company.
Someone was asking about the basing of figures for Battle Group. The rules have individual figure removal, but it would be a bit of a nightmare to base figures individually in 15mm. So it's a compromise, but I usually keep rack of casualties with miniature dice when I'm playing the game.
Ideally I wanted to paint the figures with a mix of M1935 and M1940 tunics, but I didn't have the right colour for the 1935 uniform. Next time! This platoon of 33 figures should earn me 66 points, and mean that I am over half way to my Challenge target.
