More 28mm German Support Teams

Continuing on with more 28mm Germans for my Iron Cross / Bolt Action army, here are two additional support stands. These are all Warlord figures, painted by me. I've chosen to base them on elongated D-shaped bases. This will allow to use the front straight face for measuring firing arc, while maintaining the esthetics of the round bases in the rear matching other support squads in my armies.

The first stand is a Schweres Wurfgerat 41 - AKA 'Howling Cow' rocket launcher. In terms of Iron Cross this will play like a mortar. I mostly wanted it because of the uniqueness of the model. this was fun to paint up and not difficult to assemble. I highly recommend this model for painters looking for a fun unique unit.

The second unit is a 7.5 cm leichtes Infanteriegeschütz 18 infantry gun. This is more of an early war piece, but I still wanted one since it gives a nice small artillery option on the table, providing the German command with some direct HE fire. A good all-purpose tool. This Warlord model was acceptable to assemble, but required some hand work to get it all to look right. Figures included were great with the operator even having a hand reaching down to the gun trails. I'm counting these as eight (8) figures in my painting totals, counting each weapon as a single figure.

I posted two articles today. Please scroll down to read the other one.

I would not like to see the "Howling Cow" coming at my 28mm Russians!
