More O8s for the troop experiment. Some Germans to match up with the Polish troops.
Again, I am ridiculously impressed with these figures. Cant say it enough - Simply Awesome ! is the best description I can think of.
Ordered these through http://www.fighting15sshop.co.uk/ - good prices, cheap shipping costs, and quick delivery. They had them in stock, so it is always good to have a reliable supplier for your next fix. Recommended people to deal with.
On to the miniatures :
|The 105 battery, with Opel Blitz transport. The detail on these guns is simply amazing. I will let the pictures do the talking.|
|150mm Infantry Gun for fire support for the infantry. Mostly used in the 'Early War' period, and gradually replaced by Mortars. In my rules, they function pretty much the same as Mortars.|
By the way - I dont really enjoy seeing the terms 'Early War / Late War', etc. It is, in my opinion, a horribly anglo-centric view on the overall conflict. Given that fighting broke out in the disputed Oberschleissen region in 1919 (see Wikipedia - Silesian Uprisings for more details), and continued in one form or another right up to well past the official end of 'WW2', I personally subscribe to the viewpoint that we are looking at a long protracted European war that consumed the whole of the first half of the 20th Century.
Enough ranting from me :) Back to the figures.
|MG34 on a tripod for sustained fire support. The tripod is correctly proportioned, and even the recoil buffer and mounting rails are separately visible. Completely crazy little miniatures !|
|Looking again at the use of flocking on the bases - you can get away with quite intricate flora without overwhelming the miniatures at all. Love it.|
|3 Battalions + fire support make the move towards the defended City Sector.|
|Another gratuitous photo opp.|
