I have finally finished painting up an Afrika Schützenkompanie (Rifle Company) for my 6mm Flames of War North Africa 1942 project. This has spent a long time on the workbench but I got a lot of work done over the weekend and was finally able to finish them off. Most of the models are by Heroics and Ros although a few (including the Kubelwagens) are by C-in-C.
This fully motorised Company consists of a Company HQ (2x Command SMG teams, 2x MG34 HMG teams, 2x Kfz 70 trucks and a Kubelwagen) and three Schützen Platoons (1x Cmd MG team with Kubelwagen, 6x MG teams, 1x 8cm GW34 mortar team, 2x 5cm PaK38 gun teams with 2x Sd Kfz 10 halftracks and 4x Kfz 70 trucks for infantry transport) for a total point cost of just 975pts.
Rated as Confident Veterans this company packs quite a punch and with the right support units attached it will no doubt prove to be a thorn in the side of my British forces.
They look great, I love the Kübelwagens!ReplyDelete
They do look good. I am wondering how much larger a force you will need to keep the Rejects involved! (Just because I have only seen large games in the shed of war!)ReplyDelete
Looking excellent. Do you have an British force waiting for them or is that another project?ReplyDelete
The British are half done, just a few more platoons to finish off.Delete
Very impressive. Great painting at this tiny scale.Delete
Very nice, Lee - but come on - let's see them on the table top soon! :o)Delete
I'm working on it Steve.... I have plans afoot. Just a few more platoons to paint and a little bit of scenery to prepare.Delete
Very very nice Mr Hadley!!!ReplyDelete
Very cool.. and consistent coloring on this! Though how much is a normal game of FoW though? How much would you have to add to play a "normal" game?ReplyDelete
Between 1000-1500 points for a regular game... so maybe a couple of support platoons would do it.Delete
Very nice work Lee, all coming together nicely for this projectReplyDelete
Pretty nice work.ReplyDelete
An excellent looking tiny bunch of soldiers.ReplyDelete
Very cool Mr Lee!ReplyDelete
Nice paintjob on those tiny blokes!ReplyDelete
Nice work Lee and I really like the base colour!ReplyDelete
