    All,

    Having posted a US platoon for the Mediterranean, I figured I should go ahead and post their antagonists. I’d picked these several years ago and painted them up, but hadn’t really done much with them. They were painted up for Northwest Europe, but now that I was planning on some action in the Med I needed Germans for this; rather than buy new figures, I just took about half of the platoon and re-purposed them.

    These are Panzergrenadiers in 15mm from Battlefront, and I really like the poses and gear. There are also some figures mixed in from some Battlefront miscellaneous infantry pack (I think it was called ‘Infantry Aces,’ or something like that) I picked up along the way, which add some cool poses as well.


    Here’s the whole force, 16 men in various poses, all based for North Africa. As these were meant for NW Europe, you’re going to see a few zeltbahns; sorry… I’d painted camouflage smocks on all the guys originally, with gray trousers. For the desert I simply re-did the trousers and headgear.

    I’ve already played the first Sgt Rock game, but was out of town on business and haven’t had much time to write up the report. I’m about halfway done, still working on it, but I’m about to head out to baseball practice. So stick with me; I’ve got two batreps and another five or so forces to get posted.

    V/R,
    Jack

    Negative, the combat happy Joes of Easy will trounce them time and again.

    “They look good, bring on the ARR’s !!!!!!”
    I’m working on it.

    “blah blah blah excuse blah blah blah”
    Ye bastid.  Of course, I could counter: please offer up all your batreps for the last month, I’d love to take a look.  But I’m too nice a guy 😉
    In any case, I’m out of town all next week, but taking my laptop, so I’ll definitely be posting my batreps.  Now back to you.

    V/R,
    Jack

    Cheers and good gaming.
