Some days ago I finished other Valiant miniatures for Rapid fire ... Bolt Action and so on. I have to finish the paratroops minis but this time the heavy support is completed.
At the last Milano wargames exhibition I bought two boxes of heavy artillery. They are 10.5 cm leFH18 ... one of the most used German light howitzer used during the Ww2. Adopted for service in 1935 they are included in all divisions and artillery battalions during the war
The standard German medium mortar of the war was the 81mm Granatwerfer 34. It was a very effective and accurate weapon that could provide long-range fire support, and was used throughout the conflict on most thestres.
I modified also some miniatures to have a medical team ... I used the standard artillery crew and some American packs
Below some other minis ... a panzerschreck team
... some officers and a column of soldiers
... a command group
and a MG42 team. The machine gun 42 was une of the most used weapon by Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS during ww2.
You have done a beautiful job on all these figures Marco. Did you find there was much size difference between the support crews and the general infantry? I believe Valiant retooled them to make them a bit smaller after comments that the early 20mm figures were far too big....I have both British and German by Valiant and they are very big compared to Plastic Soldier Company etc....RispondiElimina
