Lehr Panzer Company

This is my Panzer Lehr Tank Company. The picture includes a couple of Opel Mautiler Trucks and a platoon of Stug's that don't necessarily fit in my Army List but I had the models so painted them up anyway.

HQ Platoon
2 Panther A   375 Points
Combat Platoons
5 Panther A Platoon   940 Points
5 Panzer IV H Platoon   475 Points
5 Panzer IV H Platoon   475 Points
Supporting Platoons
Heavy AA Gun Platoon (2x8.8cm Flak 36+Extra Crew)   225 Points
Gerpanzerte Panzergrenadiers (HQ+3 Squads)   335 Points
Total 2825

I'm not sure where to go with this unit next, aside from providing some artillery capability. I may just opt to start building another Lehr army to compliment this force - such as a Panzer-grenadier Company - but I haven't made my mind up yet. Before I go rushing off and buying models I need to be absolutely sure what I want to build and pre plan the army list before I start. This Lehr force has come together based on what I wanted to paint rather than according to any pre-conceived plan, which probably isn't the best way to build an army!


  1. ...but damn nice models and painting though.

  2. While expensive, I've always had a soft spot for Wespe/Hummels. 3-4 Panzerwerfers couldn't hurt either.

  3. You did a great job on these Mr. Lee

  4. Lovely work Lee, looking forward to a game, as Fran said!!

  5. How about some recon? Would they be using the 250\9's. Great job on the painting

  6. Wonderful army Lee: Panzer Marsch!

  7. that a really nice force!

    Oddly enough, after my Soviet force I was considering painting up a Panzer Lehr army and had selected something similar to you but in lesser quantities.

    Remember also that Heer platoon have only 4 tanks and not 5 (at least historically). Only SS field 5 tanks per platoon.

    You may wish to add Pumas, your force lacks reco and these animals are very gracious beasts, another vote for the panzerwerfers but not all that mandatory ssince you have already the Nebels.

    A good post, thanks for sharing!

  8. Looks like you have been busy! Very nice looking army!


  9. Consider some Heavy artillery.
