From MikeW: 28mm WWII German Infantry (55 points)


Mike has sent for his opening gambit to the Challenge a squad of eleven World War Two German infantry.


These are 28mm Warlord Games plastic models that Mike is going to use with their 'Operation Squad' set of rules. (I'm curious to know how these rules play. Hopefully sometime Mike can give us a synopsis of what he thinks of them.) 


'A squad of Wehrmacht, based for Operation: Squad (well, based for pretty much anything, actually, since Op: Squad isn't that fussy - most of them are Renedra round 25mm bases, one is a UK 2 pence piece, which is almost dead on the right size and cheaper!). Army Painter Uniform Grey spray primer, Tamiya Field Grey uniforms, Army Painter Strong Tone dip. Basing is my usual (Tamiya Dark Earth Diorama paint, Javis moorland scatter and spring static grass, some GF9 medium basing grit), and then an overall coat of Army Painter Anti-Shine (JUST before it rained!).'



These 11 models will give Mike 55 points to get on the board. Nice job and welcome aboard, Mike!

  5. @GregB: a touch fiddly to assemble - getting arms in the right place is a bit tricky and I do have to confess that one of the squad is holding his rifle upside down (which I didn't notice till the liquid poly was set!)

    Having said that, nice sculpts, enough depth to take the dip very well. I'm rather pleased with the 'mucky Barbour jacket' look the tunics have acquired.
