German army for 1917-18

Posted by Fire at Will on 21 Feb 2020, 12:43

What originally started out as just reorganising my German infantry into a couple of platoons ended with the rest of the army rebased (except a few bits already done). Thanks to Andy for the extra figures needed.

The complete army (except an infantry gun)
Image

First platoon, the first section is Strelets stormtroops. Each platoon has one Vickers LMG and one MG08/15.
Image

Second platoon, it should have 4 sections of 11 men and 1 Leutnant in command and two sections could be LMG armed. I have used 10 in each section and kept 4 to give the Leutnant a small platoon HQ including a rifle grenadier
Image

The possible supports anti-tank rifles, flamethrowers and a sniper just creeping out of sight
Image

More supports, a few pioneers then four MG08 backed by a couple of minenwerfers and a couple of Grenadewerfer 16s with the cavalry behind
Image

The guns, 77mm in a disruptive camo scheme

and just plain
Image

Figures are mainly Emhar, HaT and Strelets with a few odd Revell

At the moment my British

Image

A basic platoon had 4 sections of 9 men, plus a HQ of 5 making 40 men and an officer. The sections were split by speciality, one rifle, one rifle grenade, one bomber and one Lewis gun (with two LMGs)
Image

I created two platoons, plus supports and hopefully the sections are obvious as they are arranged in order.
Image

Supports are a couple each of light and medium mortars and Vickers machine guns

Very nice indeed.

I particularly like the camouflage on the German guns.

Best wishes,
