A Few more Germans...

I haven't painted much German stuff as the British are my favourites, but I have been slowly building up a German force which I can use when my friend "the Rajah" isn't available. My son has built up a useful US force- must take some pictures of the Shermans I painted up for him- which could be used against my German Kampfgruppe.
 Anyway, what we have here are two stands of German MG teams on the move, & three more singly based figures. The two kneeling bods were from the Italeri FJ set but have had head swaps & paint conversions.
All these figures are 1/72 plastics & to be honest I'm not even sure what all the manufacturers are- perhaps you'll recognise them.

  1. These are great. If I'm not mistaken they are a mix of Italeri and Caesar.

  6. Nice painting :)only one thing to critisize the painted insignia on the shoulder would show a Unterfeldwebel (Sergeant) with the insignia of a Gefreiter (Private) on his arm. http://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Datei:Unteroffiziere.jpg&filetimestamp=20060828095023
