Panzer Grenadier Platoon

At long long  last I have finish my Panzer Grenadier platoon.
These suckers did take me a while to complete and I really felt the absence of my airbrush.
That said I really enjoyed painting them and as promised in my last post I made sure I did a piece of terrain.

In battle I've struggled to use them to any effect.  It's always a toss up between mounted or not and if not do I want the halftracks on the table.

I think a general rule of thumb is mounted when facing infantry and dismounted if facing tanks.  In today's battle against Adam, they went down pretty hard to an artillery bombardment from a double width howitzer template.  Then I made a mistake with the rules, which states they can auto un-bail from a bombardment, oh well live and learn I guess.

If anyone has any feedback I'd appreciate it, i'm always looking to improve my modelling and painting skills so anything really is of help.

That's all for now



  1. Very nice job. I'll look forward to reading of their exploits...

  2. Very nice- weathering looks fantastic

  3. Thanks guys, I appreciate the comments.

    Popped out and bought a new Airbrush today. I feel a review coming on

    1. I ended up with a Harder and Steenbeck Evolution Solo.

      I took along a sample of minis to Everything Airbrush, spent some time with a chap there talking through my requirements.

      Funny thing is, they fixed my old one for free from spares they had lying now I have two.

      One thing he gave me as a tip, was do not stick varnish through it, that may have been what wrecked my first airbrush....good tip.
