Well, this little project seems to be humming along nicely. Rubicon supplied a Schwimmwagen and a Sdkfz 251 with my Rubi discounts - very inexpensive, I also dug out a couple of earlier purchases that just needed finishing. Passengers were Warlord plastic from another set of purchases.
In addition, Warlord had another of their discount deals and 20% off the Heer Winter Support Pack, that netted me the HMG plus extra figures for jump off points, medic and additional crew for the HMG team. I also picked up their package with flamethrower, sniper and panzerschreck team. So overall I am pretty happy that virtually everything purchased has been at a substantial discount.
Everything is there for a German Heer force suitable for Volksgrenadier Divisions from late 1944 - 45. With one exception, a Panzer IV J. I am so tempted by the Rubicon offering. Will I, won't I ? Oh, and since I have three Hetzers, surely one would be improved by adding Bicarb?
Nice and polished, well. actually just the gloss varnish to prepare for decals and pinwashing.
Enough dithering, Here are the additional vehicles - finally resplendent in their Bicarbonate of Soda 'snow'.
So the target is to finish off this platoon this week. And then resist the temptation to add winter US...
