Later War Germans

 

~1943-45~

The beginnings of a later war German force. 

The half-tracks in the Panzergrenadier Schwerer Zug come from Forged in Battle. They are considerably shorter than the Plastic Soldier Company half-tracks, which is a little annoying whichever manufacturer has scaled their model correctly, but paint up very nicely and, of course, have a base as part of the model which saves a lot of time and bother.

Although up to now I have tended to buy Battlefront tank models, with this force I have expanded into using other manufacturers. The Panzer IVs and Panthers are plastic models from Plastic Soldier Company, and three out of four of the SdKfz 7/1s are from Forged in Battle. The reason?  Simple:  expense. I can field five tanks from PSC for at least half the cost of the Battlefront models: worth it when you're buying tanks by the Zug even if in principle you prefer metal to plastic!
