Hi Guys, I have based the first Panzer Grenadier Plt of my late war winter Germans, I'm fairly happy with the paint job and basing, I will take more care with picking the mix of figures for the next two Plts, I made the mistake of trying to have a good variety of figures but forgot about how they will interact to tell a story, however overall it turned out OK, working on a Plt of

These are actually AB's Saxon Artillery figures painted as Westphalian artillery, Westphalia's gunners had epaulets (I would have tried a conversion but I didn't notice till after I had started painting) 2 of the figures are painted as Horse artillery, but they are almost indistinguishable from the foot gunners, red roundels on their pants and red waist coat, the figure painted in grey is an Artillery train trooper, thrown in for variety.

These are Command Decision's late war Germans, I have used green stuff to convert them to winter uniform, they aren't bad figures, some have pretty obvious mould lines, most are in good poses but some are poor, they are not all the same size, but neither are humans, proportions are generally good, they are smaller then BF figures, they come 50 to a pack and I bought 14 different packs I will post a picture of all the poses from each pack later, over all I would give them an average of 7/10 this is the first platoon of a Panzer Grenadier Company for FOW. I haven't sculpted the winter parka perfectly, but these figures are really small so they should look the part once painted.
