More Warlord Germans

This is the rest of the German figures from the Normandy Box set from Warlord Games.

 The last three figures are the commander and his two sidekicks.

The complete set.
For the first squad I gave one of the soldiers a panzerfaust. Later I thought about this a bit more and decided  to make separate markers to show if a squad was carrying panzerfausts or not. Unfortunately I only had two panzerfausts left so to make the markers look a bit better I made up some crates to place the panzerfausts on.

Yellow team

Sniper team

White team

No more Germans for a while now.........promise!!

Bolt Action Germans

At last I have based up some more of the Warlord Games WW2 German troops. Painting was finished a few weeks ago , I am just a bit slow at getting round to doing the bases.

White Squad.
 I decided to use flowers on the bases to identify the different squads. In a couple of the games I have been at there was some confusion at times about which figures were part of which squad.

NCO for White Squad.

Red Squad.

Red Squad's MG team

The first squad has yellow flowers ( see February's posts).

Although these squads are only 5 fig's strong I intend to get another box and beef up all the squads.

 The Normandy Box Set only has 20 Germans, so I have gone for three squads of 5 fig's, a two man Sniper team and a three man Command group.

FIW game.

Last night some of the lads got together for a game set during the French and Indian war.

Two units of rangers, Rogers Rangers and Gorham's Rangers were charged with escorting a young lady through hostile territory. In other words get her from one side of the table to the other with out her being captured by the French or the Indians.

The rangers got to almost half way across the table when the battle become a big shooting match and with the honours being split the Indians and the French started to pull back first. Unfortunately time was just about up so the game was called a draw.
