Meine kleine Armee Deutsch!
Again, just a short post, but one in a series that will cover my collection of AFV's, Artillery, Softskins and soldiers.
First up the German Army, European Theatre of Operations.
Rear Row L-R 2 Tiger Tanks (CTS), 2 Panther Tanks (CTS) and 2 Pzkpfw Mk IVs (CTS)
Middle Row L-R 2 Sdkfz 251s (CTS), 1Pzkpfw Mk II, (Scratchbuilt) 1 Pzkpfw Stug IV (CTS), 2 Sdkfz 251s (Airfix)
Front Row L-R 1 Kublewagen (Britains), 1 Kublewagen (Scratchbuilt), 3 Pak 40s. (Britains) and 2 Sdkfz 222s (Scratchbuilt)
As you can see, there are a few vehicles still to be painted, i.e the CTS and Airfix. There is also a dire shortage of Transport vehicles. Must get around to that one day!
Next, the German Infantry, European Theatre of Operations.
Obviously, small in numbers compared to other peoples collections, but I'm pretty happy with them.
The greater majority of the troops are Britains, series 1 and 2 with 5 squads of the (newish) Superdeetail figures. The figures on the right are a mixture of Matchbox and Airfix. These were resurrected from my early days of wargaming with my son back in the 80's.
The figures on the left are also Britains which make up my "Reserve or HQ section".
There is also an example each of the Motorcycles and three Mortar squads. Two converted Britains artillerymen and an Airfix prone MG team are also evident. A Timpo Officer with bino's rounds out the collection. The non Britains figures (with the exception of the Timpo Officer) have been rebased using Britians style bases from DSG
