Bolt Action Norway Fallschirmjager
I've been working pretty hard over the last few weeks so thought I'd reward myself with a new force for Bolt Action, following on from my previous ramblings about Norway. I have the Crusader early war French to use as the 13th DBLE, with a bit of imagination and a modicum of greenstuff, so thought that the obvious choice would be a unit of paratroopers.
I really like the Crusader figures so it was a bit of a no-brainer. I've splashed out on a unit pack of 16 riflemen, 2 SMG's, 2LMG's with loaders and a couple of officers, which at £30 is a pretty good deal and cheaper than buying the packs seperately. I've also added a command pack, an MG34 on tripod with crew and a pack with a light mortar and anti-tank rifle crew.
That's pretty much it, so a straightforward summer project that requires minimal effort to base and paint, but will enable me to field a half platoon of two sections, a command section and some supporting firepower, just in case. In the meantime, I'm basing up a second twelve man squad of late war US GI's, followed by some heavy weapons bases and a tank!.
