German Winter Infantry #1

A rather bedraggled unit for my first battalion of German winter infantry, Intended to depict some Stalingrad defenders or other troops ill-prepared for winter fighting.


The majority of the figures are the Strelets German Army in Stalingrad, plus some Zvezda German MMGs and Mortars in greatcoats, HaT greatcoated German gunners, a few Italeri German elite infantry and a single Revell Afrika Korps figure.

A couple of close-ups

Zvezda MMG, S Model 37mm AT gun with Hat crew


A Zvezda 81mm Mortar (you get two poses in the set) and an Ace 75mm Infantry gun


Apologies for the groundwork as it was all I could find, somewhere I have a couple of old "white" sheets.

Great stuff Will- winter troops do have their own appeal for me.

Cheers,

Great looking figures. Nice how you've mixed in the different manufacturers as well.
