All Hell Let Loose

Here is the last squad of the first platoon of Late WWII Germans in 20mm for Disposable Heroes. the figures are from SHQ and have been fun to paint.

Have tried to create the impression of the camouflage on the tunics without going overboard and painting every single shape and colour in the pattern. The pictures are clickable so have a look and pass your own comments on them. Personally, rather pleased with the overall look.

In comparison to some other ranges at this scale the SHQ figures are a bit slender but well proportioned and clearly sculpted. Worth looking into for small scale projects as the releases from Plastic Soldiers Company  and Warlord Games are making lead in this period redundant for larger projects.

Next time the full platoon is in use will try and remember and take some more pictures of the whole group together.

Next up from this era will be crew and anti-tank guns to support the above Grenadiers in their defence of the fatherland. Back to the Mycenaeans and Old Glory casualty markers for Impetus.

Cheers for now

Very nice unit. Haven't played it in a while, but DH/CF7B is my favorite rules for WW2 (in 28mm). I see you also like Myceaneans - another favorite of mine. Best, Dean
