Romanians

I have a healthy interest in the underdog. It's why I like the early war small tanks. This interest also stretches to armies and is why I like the Romanians. This is my Romanian Infantry Regiment (1942-1945) with a supporting Artillery Regiment for the Rapid Fire! rules. The figures are all by Battlefront, whom, I believe, are the only manufacturers making Romanians in 15mm, if I'm wrong please let me know in the comments below!

The army is aligned along the Rapid Fire! Second Supplement army lists and consists of:

Infantry Regiment (1942-1945)
  • HQ = CO + 5 Figs
  • AT Company = 3 x 47mm Guns
  • Mortar Company = 1 x 120mm Mortar
  • Recce Company = 10 x Horse
  • 2 x Rifle Battalions
Artillery Regiment (1941-1945)
  • Observer Team = 2 men
  • 2 x 75mm Field Gun
  • 2 x 100 Skoda Howitzer
Anyway, here they are:









Armoured support comes from three R3 tanks all by Battlefront. The commander is a British tank crewman as the Romanian and British uniforms were very similar:




Thanks for looking and stay tuned for more posts in the future!!
