    Just posted a few pictures of my German forward observer teams on my blog:

    One Wehrmacht (Heer) and one SS team, both using Warlord Games figures.

    Enjoy,

    Beautifully done. That’s the problem with forums: you find yourself tempted into too many periods in too many scales when you see the fine work of others.

    Those are brave men knocking at our door. Let's go kill them!

    @Paul
    … Are you interested in my WWI minis that I bought for that very reason and never get around to painting! 😛

    Don’t tempt me, mate. Hobby budget for this month was exhausted long ago and next months is earmarked for Black Hat Tales of the Dragon Kings. Or em4 barbarians. Or Copplestone Darkest Africa. Or Wargames Factory zulus. Or Perry Samurai. Or 15mm.co.uk Judge Dredd look-alikes.
    Thanks though.

    Nicely done and nicely depicted.  German Forward Observers were tied to a land line.

    No worries Paul… I was just pulling your leg!

     

    Thanks Quidveritas! I think you are right that most forward observer teams operated with field telephones. But I have seen pictures of teams with radios, too. No matter what… A radio looks more impressive than a telephone anyway! 😉

    You lucky sod you have a hobby budget , mine normally involves the quiver of my lower lip and big sad pleading eyes at my wife.  (Lower lip quiver taught to me by my granddaughter).

    William Harley, there’s no need to beg. You just need to be adept at smuggling small packages into the house (I find concealing it under a jacket draped over your arm is particularly effective), and be patient enough to unbox everything once the commanding officer has retired for the night.

    Oh, and 14th Brooklyn: that is like offering Scotch to an alcoholic. Cruel 😉

    Well it is good to see, we all share the same problems!

    @ Paul: At least I am offering you the good stuff and not just the cheap booze! 😛
