Yes, you don't see much German stuff come out of my painting corner, but today you do :)
The Kubelwagen and accompanying figures are Airfix from my son's collection- I thought I'd paint and base them up for him. He will be able to use them for a command base in our Battlegroup games if he happens to be using the Germans.
Next up is an 88 that my friend Nick Grant sent me a while back, along with a bunch of other stuff. It was originally painted up for Eastern Front with winter white-wash, but I have given it an all new paint-job and changed the look of the base, which was also wintry.
It just so happened I had a crew for this beast in my lead & plastic pile...
A while back I purchased some Fallschirmjager crew for the 88 from Wartime Miniatures, (a great Australian Company, highly recommended range of miniatures, their WW2 British are especially good). The two blokes with the shells are from Wartime & the figure kneeling with binoculars is plastic from Italeri.
If Splod from Hobart sees this post- don't worry Splod, I had these long before you started your FJ's, not trying to double up on what you are doing, just fancied getting these painted up.
So here is the 88 with the FJ crew in splinter camo:
I haven't been neglecting the Colonials, and have managed to a bit of blocking in on some Fuzzies on camels:
If you get a chance, the Young Sarge has started his own blog: Small Soldiers at Arms
Say g'day if you get a chance, and perhaps offer him some encouragement, I know Nick already has (thanks Nick). :)
