MMM May Challenge - Done!

Hi Folks,

I had no update this weekend and I was hard at work getting my challenge finished for this month. It was a bit of a slog - I won't deny that. I knew I was pushing myself with the amount of models for this month... and I am glad I can take the foot off the pedal for a bit.

As ever, massive thanks go out to the MMM chat guys n gals.

So, here we go:

PaK40 platoon + spare gun for my Nebelwerfer battery. Plus command team.

I might add some of the same foliage to these guys as I used on my M10's - but for now these guys are finished.

Mortar Platoon with 2 spare mortars (Battlefront teams) for my HQ platoon. I do have the Peter Pig models donated by Lee, but had spares so decided to do them. Also 3 spotter teams and command.

Then we have a 9 squad pioneer platoon with command. Each squad of these guys is 3 stands, making it a massive unit. Only riflemen though. Command has a Panzerfaust.

And lastly we have three standard sniper teams and one sniper character.

I also ended up with 2 spares and a painted vehicle driver. So 114 infantry, 5 guns and 8 mortars.

Which means over 3 months I have painted:

Command HQ + A/T Team + 4 Mortar Squads + 3 sniper teams
3 x Infantry platoons
1 x Pioneer platoon
1 x HMG platoon
1 x Mortar Platoon
1 x PaK40 platoon (with 5 guns)

Leaving me with:

1 x Fusilier platoon (small unit, only 2 squads)
1 x Nebelwerfer battery (3 rocket launchers + command)
1 x 8.8cm A/T gun platoon (2 guns)
3 x StuGs
2 x Tigers (just to patch up/repair)
Not much to do!!!

  4. lovely work James, great highlighting and basing.

    1. Thanks Lee, tried 2 stage highlights on some of these guys. Not sure whether it's worth continuing with that though!
