Still on the WW2 theme, thanks to the very addictive TFL's Chain of Command WW2 rules and Warlord's German Pioneer box set.
With Chain of Command you can beef up your platoon with a variety of options from the support list, depending on the scenario and how many points you have available to spend. For example if you are in a defensive role you may want to choose minefields, barbed wire or a road block in the form of Czech hedgehogs or concrete blocks. Conversely, if you are the attacking force you may need to choose mine clearance, wire cutting or demolition teams from your support list to clear the obstacles.
So here is what I have done so far....
Made from off cuts of plastic sprue.
MINE FIELDS & BARBED WIRE
Using foam board gives you the opportunity to dig down and give the blast hole some depth.
When your engineers have cleared the mine field or cut through the barbed wire you need to be able to show this.
In Chain of Command any tracked vehicle can also clear a path through barbed wire.
Flamethrowers are also on the engineer support list.
The engineers so far. There should be a crew of three for each team.
Chain of Command also use scenic 'jump-off points'. You can buy these in resin from Too Fat Lardies (the four on the left in the finished set are from TFL the rest are either scratch built or from Wargames Foundry German Para set.
I also got around to finishing off the check point from Wargames Foundry.
and painted up my Panzer IV tank commander from Warlord.
My next post I will show some action shots of the engineers on my table that I have set up for Scenario 6 from Chain of Command 'ATTACK ON AN OBJECTIVE' which will be the bridge.
