WARLORD WW2 plastic German, also Zulu book



I have just finished another platoon for Chain of Command. These are mostly Warlord plastic with a few existing Artizan miniatures metal figures. I have used a few bits and pieces from their blitzkrieg pack and also a couple of bare heads from the Brits.


I think I have read the lists wrong for a Panzergrenadier platoon in CoC as it mentions a Junior leader plus two panzerfausts for each section. I took that to be actual figures which makes each section 12 x men strong and I think it is only meant to be the weapons and 10 x men, so I have painted too many figures.

I am amazed how many panzerfausts and LMG's a German platoon had from the mid war onwards.



 
I also painted up a couple of figures and trimmed the bases so I could use them for extra crew for my halftracks, I can also use these for forward observers or as extra crew for my HMG's.
 
 
 
Warlord metal mortar team.
 

 
 
This chap has a few bits from the other plastic sets from Warlord.



And the usual action shots.













 














 





Warlord recently sent me their new supplement for Black Powder 'Zulu'. If you have any interest in the Zulu war this book is superb for gaming the period even if you don't use the BP rules.

You might recognise quite a few images in the book from this blog. 


I will finish for the year with wishing you all a Happy Christmas and see you in 2014.

Have a drink and be Merry.


Cheers,
Pat.

    I think credit where credit is due and your name should be in the book, this is a bad omission considering your amazing contribution

    1. Huh, they didn't even credit you Pat! That's the one thing wargamers value the most is the credit for their work(even more so then money) so that's pretty poor treatment in my opinion and this by default they already know as they are wargamers themselves so really no excuse IMHO.

    2. Chaps, Warlord have been very apologetic and generously made amends. Also my name will be in future credits when they do reprints.
      Cheers,
      Pat.

    3. I knew I recognised you work, but then demised it because I couldn't find a credit. Great to her that they have put things right though. Have a great Christmas Pat.

  7. Very good work but be careful with the long weapons of the Bolt action plásticos, too flimsy and I have had a few of them broken alrwady

  11. Amazing work! I'm really not too fond of the Warlord plastics but you did an great job in both painting and converting these guys. So to say you brought 'em to life with some very dynamic and dramatic poses. The guy with the MG-34 over his shoulder is my favourite. As for the Zulu book I'd say bad demeanour not to credit your fantastic work.
    Merry Christmas and a happy new year to you and your loved ones.

    Congratulation to all the pictures in the Zulu book, would have been a shame if your marvellous zulu collection haden´t been in it.

  18. Brilliant action shots Pat. You created the feeling of moving up to and through the village magnificently. A set of wargame photos without a game that still capture the imagination!
