Repair Truck And Some Engineers for Stalingrad

The Stalingrad build continues with this repair truck. It's a really old Peter Pig model, I think, that I have had lying around for about twenty years. I never really knew what to do with it and it was painted in three tone late war camo. I thought it would fit in better at Stalingrad and painted it in German Grey with some added stowage.



Then I added a Engineer company to the 544th Infantry Regiment roster. It consists of nine men including a flamethrower.


Eight of the figures are Plastic Soldier Company's new plastic Germans while the flamethrower is a Peter Pig model, so you can see how well the two different manufacturers blend together.


This project is not even half way through at the moment and I have a lot left to work on, so I don't expect it will be finished any time soon, but I will keep plodding away at it, like the 6th Army trying to reach the Volga...

  2. Cracking job on these and all your Stalingrad stuff. I know how long a project it is because I'm doing it myself in 20mm. But one day you'll have a game that will make your fellow gamers green with envy so stay the course!

    1. Thank you very much, are you following the Rapid Fire supplement lists as well? There is a hell of a lot to get through, but like you say, one day I'll be able to game the scenario!

  3. No, I'll probably use the Battlegroup Kursk rules but that doesn't absolve me from making endless ruined buildings, ruined streets, ruined everything!
