I've been cracking on with my Bolt Action Germans over the last few days, and the Heer infantry I need to get finished are almost done, more of which in a later post.
In the meantime between painting i've re-done a platoons worth of Waffen SS as an alternate force, full of veteran fanatical infantry. I painted these originally as a FOW army, but since I switched to Blitzkrieg commander I found I had a few Infantry spare, so here we are, newly rebased for bolt action, repainted in places, due to chipped paint and given a coat of matt varnish.
The Waffen SS made great use of camouflage, and even patented their own types so that the Wehrmacht couldn't use it!
I have painted my troops in summer oakleaf camouflage, as you can see, its quite a difficult pattern to do in 15mm..(it is for me anyway!)
I believe that the SS were the first troops to have proper helmet covers, and theirs were reversible too, with summer oakleaf on one side and Autumn oakleaf on the other side.
Their smocks were also reversible.
So heres the troops:
Platoon commander and 2 additional men.
10 man veteran squad, including 2 LMG (MG42) teams.
8 man Veteran squad, including 1 LMG (MG42) team.
8 Man veteran squad, including 1 LMG (MG42) team.
The full platoon, ready to take the fight to the Bolsheviks!
The updated and expanded Heer Grenadier platoon will be making an appearance over the weekend.
