US Glider Artillery

Hi All

I have been busy this month getting my army ready for Brighton. This platoon of Glider Artillery makes it 4 out of 6 platoons done and dusted.


I think these are a great little unit, you get a nice points break as the direct fire option isn't great, but I don't think you can complain about 115pts for 3 guns with a good firepower and smoke.

Before I knew Battlefront were releasing the Winter Jeeps I bought a set of the Skorzeny Commando Group, but not wanting to waste anything I decided to use one of the bases as a Staff Team. Although I was slightly annoyed I'm happy with how it turned out.

Not much more to say so I'll let the pictures do the talking.

  2. Staff team makes for a nice little diorama.

    These will fit in nicely with your other snowy yanks.

  3. Great work.Got to love the Glider infantry.I play them and have been slowly updating to the Nuts list.I am just not keen on the Winter theme for me because i already had them ready from the turning tide list.But i do like the fact that you may add a .50 cal to rifles and getting vet. status.Also stinks for me is that i have a max. out 75mm battery that i used form Turning Tide.
