Experiencing a little painting fatigue, Steve staggers in with another force for 'Flames of War', a late-war German Sturmkompanie.
From Steve: These troops are from the 78th Sturm Division. The Sturmkompanie fought on the eastern front against the Soviets. They saw combat from Moscow to Kursk and guarded the critical point at Orsha. They were an assault force with lots of heavy weapons to ward of Soviet tanks and infantry hordes. Heavy use of machines guns, panzerfausts, panzerschreks, lots of guys.
These have the camo smocks, but most of them are rolled up and on the backs with the German fieldgrau uniforms showing. The snipers were hidden in the grass wearing them.
These are 15mm Battlefront castings. Steve uses Vallejo paints and then Strong Tone Quickshade. The tufts have been sourced from Tajima1.
This group of 90 figures will give Steve an impressive 270 points. Well done, Steve, they look great!
I think the next thing Steve will be working on is some figures for 'Force on Force'.
