Some first prototype units for 1943(?) German Divisions.
Just playing around with ideas, using 2mm Irregular figures from Eureka.
Seeing what works, and what doesn't work so well at this scale.
|Medium Pz Bn, on 30x20mm base. 2 PzIII (or possibly PzIV), with some supporting PzGrenadiers.|
The infantry are a nightmare to paint, but the tanks come out OK. They respond well to some dry brushing in a heavily lightened tone to bring out the edges.
|PzGren battalion. 2 x Hanomags, and dismounted PzGrenadiers.|
|Another PzGrenadier battalion. 2 Hanomags, and a mix of mounted and dismounted PzGrenadiers.|
The mounted 'figures' are actually greenstuff carefully sculpted into the original model.
|A closer shot of the sculpted PzGrenadier greens inside the Hanomag.|
|Another shot of the Armoured Recon company. Damn its hard to photo in this scale. Fun when it works out though.|
|A Divisional Heavy AT battery (88mm) Nice little diorama, 2mm scale starts to make a lot more sense when you stick a lot of activity on a base.|
|Divisional artillery Battery. Another mini diorama with a suggestion of activity in it.|
|Divisional HQ stand. Yet to paint the officers here :(|
Note the Horch staff car, and the sandbagged AA position .. in the gaming rules, HQ bases are assumed to have all of the Divisional AA assets on board.
