So yesterday I showed ya my dogfaces for North Africa, Sicily, and Italy. I hope you were sufficiently joyed and awed at the sight of them, and surely you found yourself wondering, just who might they be facing off against?
Well, I do have a few Germans for North Africa… I posted them here last year:
I have added to them a bit, and this is they, a three-battalion regiment of Fallschirmjaeger, ready to rock and roll in the dusty, arid environs of Tunisia, Sicily, and southern Italy. As with my British, Germans, and Americans, this regiment is built out in accordance with the tables of organization for Rapid Fire Reloaded.
Each battalion consists of a command stand, a 50mm mortar, five rifle stands, two machine gun stands, an 80mm mortar stand, and a 37mm PaK-36 anti-tank gun. My Afrika Korps force already has 50mm PaK-38 ATGs and 88mm Flak-36 dual-purpose guns, as well as various trucks, armored cars, and tanks, I can press into service in support of these German hunters from the sky. There is also a single forward observer stand (bottom right).
And Martin, please don’t hate me/beat me up, these guys are anything but uniform, I went full ‘band of gypsies’ on them. Hardly befitting an elite fighting force, but I just couldn’t help myself 😉
Some rifle stands.
And Anti-Tank Guns.

So there’s my FJ set to face off against my Yanks, need to get off my butt and finish up all my Western Desert stuff. But one more giant force to post up and show off, which I’ll post tomorrow. I believe (hope) you’ll be duly impressed 😉
