Aufklärungs Platoon - Finished

This is my completed Aufklärungs platoon. Three motorcycle scout sections of two bases each, and an officer. I will need to paint up infantry dismount stands for these in the future. The figures are all Battlefront figures. I decided to do some creative modeling with this unit utilizing a SdKfz 2 Kettenkrad towing an ammunition trailer with some troopers riding on top. It's my favorite part of the unit! My thoughts were it wouldn't be completely unreasonable for some enterprising troopers to get a hold of one to use as an improvised recovery vehicle for the platoon.

I've based these with a combination of Scenic Express, Silfor and Gale Force 9 products. I haven't been particularly happy with the basing on my Finnish army, so I decided to try a new process for my Germans. Although I like these stands better, I think there are still some improvements that can be made. Hopefully whatever I come up with can be added to these stands retroactively.
