US Airborne

Old figures, tarted-up a bit with some highlights and then re-based for Battlegroup/Chain of Command.

HQ Squad, 60mm Mortar and Bazooka team.

First Squad, Rifle Team and .30 cal LMG team.

Second Squad, Rifle Team and .30 cal LMG team.

To easily identify leaders in CoC, I'm using decals. A small square of greenstuff put on the base, then painted in an appropriate colour (US Dark Green here), followed by a decal. The Senior Leaders (Platoon LT and Staff Sgt) are marked with starts w/circular surround, while the Junior Leaders (Squad Sergeants) were marked with just plain white stars.

This is fairly unobtrusive on the tabletop and with the markings to the rear, facing the players, quite easily spotted even in poor light.

Platoon Lieutenant, Plt Staff Sgt and a pair of squad Sergeants.

Großdeutschland Tigers

The (in)famous scheme, from a rather murky pic in Wolfgang Schneider's Tiger in Combat, Vol. II (p. 55), a tank from III./Panzer-Regiment "Großdeutschland" (schwere Panzer-Abteilung "Großdeutschland"). Six vehicles were supposedly delivered in this scheme (or similar) in May/June 1944.
