For my first entry in the Challenge I painted a platoon of Volkssturm for Battle Group: Fall of the Reich. I'm continuing the theme now with a platoon of Volksgrenadiers. The figures are a mixture of Skytrex, Peter Pig and Battlefront.
As with the Volkssturm, I had fun basing these in an urban environment, using bits of ground cork, matchsticks and broken bits of plaster walls.
I tried to give some of the figures camouflage smocks painted in 'Marsh Pattern' camo. It's very hard to get right in this scale, so any suggestions welcome.
That's 32 figures, which should give me a base of 64 points. Happy New Year, everyone!
From Curt:Another great unit of last-gasp Germans for your late-war collection Alan. The figures are wonderful to be sure, but it's the spectacular base-work that really places them in their proper context. I particularly like the grafitti on the walls and the irregular shaped bases - worth a few extra points I think. Excellent work.
