Here is picture of fallschirmjager (German paratrooper) crewing a 7.5cm light howitzer as part of my FJ army for Bolt Action/Chain or Command. It is made by Black Tree Designs and I picked it up last year in the January sales.
From a painting point of view I prefer the Artizan Designs sculpting style to the BTD ones, but they are very comparable in terms of size/bulk etc, so work well together and the BTD range does fill in some of the gaps in the Artizan range, like this little cannon.
The 7.5 cm Howitzer was a very common gun in the German army and Luftwaffe ground forces. it was used by the FJ as it was light and easy to transport, often being towed with a Kettenkrad, which was a sort of half tracked motorbike light enough to be transported by plane (The Kettenkrad is on my to to list).
More great work mate.
Looking forward to seeing the whole force when done. :)
These look great Rob!
I have a few BTD figures in my own WW2 forces and I mostly like them. There are a few odd ones - weird poses, odd equipment...
Well done. The fallschimjager are well painted. I seldom play gun in 28mm, seem strange at such a short range.
I agree Cedric, but it is a nice model. And if the other guy is going to bring a tank...
These look fantastic mate.
