Really lovely work Steve. Even though the camo may be a bit conjectural, I must say it looks pretty darn good to me. I also like your basing using a bit of deadfall leaves to break up the grass - nice. I look forward to seeing your upcoming Volkssturm as I'm sure they will be a mixed lot. 50 points it is - well done.

From StephenS - Veteran Grenadier Squad (50 Points)
Here is my first ever entry, a 10 man squad of 28 mm Veteran Grenadiers from Warlord Games. These will see action in my German force for Bolt Action. They have been sitting in the pile since I picked them up at Cancon (a gaming convention in Australia) in January. It's amazing what a little bit of friendly competition will do for painting motivation!
I know, I know, everyone loves going up against veteran troops armed with assault rifles in Bolt Action. However, these are the first part of a 1945 - Last Levy list I'm building, more of which I hope to reveal as the Challenge progresses. The rest of the troops will be mostly inexperienced Volkssturm and Kriegsmarine squads, which should hopefully balance things out.
The camouflage is my first attempt, and not a pattern you are likely to find in any history books :)
Apologies for the blurriness of the photos, I'm still working out how to take the best shots. All up, it should be 50 points.
