I had this German MG42 crew from Black Tree Design (BTD) base-coated and ready to paint several years ago. My 28mm WWII collection has been dormant for a number of years which has kept my motivation to paint them fairly low. But I needed a little point boost for the Challenge and a change from painting the little guys.
Here is a short YouTube video of the MG42 in action.
Looking down the business end of the MG42 and crew!
Those all important extra barrels on the back of the assistant gunner.
Thanks for viewing my submission.
You see so much of the late war camo so I find it's always refreshing to see some German Heer infantry in their 'happy days' uniform.
I've always liked the look of the MG-34. With it's round-ported ventilated barrel, it always seemed so brutally utilitarian and lethal. You have very nice and clean brushwork on these fellows, this is especially seen in their shoulder tabe and tunic markings. I also really like the expended brass casings at the foot of the gun. Very nicely done Tom.
