20mm Stalingrad project

Hi guys

My painting business has gone off with a smashing start, I have been painting full time for a couple of weeks now, and I am reminded of the saying, "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" so I want a little project for some "me" time, all ready having a gazillion projects on the go of course means I need to start a new one, I have always wanted to do a Stalingrad project, so here I go.
I have rummaged through my stash of WWII Germans and picked out the most suitable, they are mostly AB Heer troops, there are a couple of problems though, they mostly have ankle boots, although I have read ankle boots were used from 41 on, most pics of Germans at Stalingrad I have seen are wearing marching boots, so I will need to do some converting here, remarkably I also have very few MG 34s only 1 of 4, the others are MG 42s, I have some AB Fallschirmjagers with MG 34s, I may do an MG transplant.
So I have 50 suitable figs for an Infantry platoon, I will be doing some supporting elements, mortars, HMG, AT etc, and some armoured support (will need to rummage through my model stash to see what I have.


  1. Good news, & a cool project idea - I look forward to seeing some painted Stalingrad stuff.
