|US Parachute Rifle Company - HQ plus Two Platoons|
This force is worth a total of 820pts. The HQ is 35 pts plus 20pts of each of the three extra Bazooka teams. Then each of the two platoons consist of three Rifle Squads and a Mortar Squad for 365pts per Platoon.
I'm already preparing an additional Machine Gun Platoon from some models that the Angry Lurker gave me a while back. This will give my force some much needed additional firepower. Hopefully I will also be able to pick up some 81mm Mortar teams when I'm at Salute next week to beef up the Company some more. I can also use my Stuart Platoon as Divisional support or even a platoon of Sherman's to make this an effective fighting force.
|Bazooka Team - Note the Screaming Eagle shoulder patch on the upper left arm|
Having said that this Company comes with five Bazooka teams which should make any German tank forces think twice before assaulting these tough hombres!
|60mm Mortar Team|
I'm glad I have finished these now because I can go to Salute next week fired up and ready to look for the next platoon to add.
|This is just the start of my 101st Airborne Company|
Having the Easter break off work helped me crack on and get this finished quicker than I expected and I've even started preparing my next project although it won't be quite so large and daunting this time.
