For my Winter Germans, I slapped on some colour to these three frigid fellows.
|The look on the 'Shreck wielder's face does not inspire all that much confidence that he knows what he's doing...|
First up, the Sergeant sculpt for my Winter Heer squad, pointing out where the direction that the dastardly Ivans are reportedly coming from. Lots of fun detail to this bloke, my fav’s being that his helmet has been stashed at his belt and his winter-goggles are still strapped about it. He’s also looking down the length of his nose, like some superiority-complex’d twat – perfect for an unpleasant bully of an NCO.
The model is by Warlord Games and is actually supposed to be the Officer's adjutant, but I liked him better as my Grenadier Squad's sergeant.
|You can't see it in this pic, but I managed to paint in his black/white/red roundel cap badge. First time too. (Even if you zoom in, it doesn't show. All that hard work that, really, only I get to see.)|
|Can't tell if the fellow on the right is trying to tell his pal to fire, or to NOT fire?|
With these three done, I've moved on to another tiny part of my Winter German army, their medic. Warlord Games' sculpt for a Winter theater medic is a lovely fig, propping up some poor fellow who's been injured somehow. On top of that, I've also plonked down on a 50/60mm (Can't rightly remember) round mdf base the free fig (Also of one German trooper seeing to his comrade) that was free with purchases of the physical 2nd Edition. But seeing as I picked up the Kindle version of the book I never got to have this cool mini - that is until, the estimable Admiral Drax was kind enough to post me one and I saw immediately upon receipt that it would make for a perfect centerpiece in my game-table objectives collection!
And lastly, I also started slapping the beginning layers onto the Sd.Kfz. 251/1 Ausf D half-track that will be the transport option for my previously previewed SS Grenadiers squad.
|These are the passenger figs for the half-track, but I'm not so sure I'll be utilising them. They are TINY (!) and whilst I would love to have passengers in my hanomag, I'm not so sure these plastics are the men for the job...|
