That one is very good. Like all the piles of rubble on the pavement.

The first full platoon of Stosstruppen is ready now as well; from left to right a LMG Gruppe, a Schützen Gruppe, a Grenadier Gruppe with platoon commander in front and next another Schützen Gruppe and the second LMG Gruppe. All Gruppen are nine men strong so this platoon is pretty well on strength for 1918. Different support weapons are up next!
Buildings are good enough but I will put some black cardboard 'dividers' inside to block the light from falling through and also to block line of sight.


Cheers,
Rob

Really nice. I like the figures and the houses lots.  Thumbs up

A very atmospheric setting. The partially glazed windows are a very nice touch.

The partially glazed windows are a very nice touch.

That's actually the easiest part; I buy these houses second hand off the Internet and then break out the glazing with a screwdriver or pocket knife. If I like the looks or it looks like I could tear the whole building apart by applying more force I just leave the remains in...
Lots more houses coming my way already and I must admit I might take all this to a whole new level with the other buildings added later on. Something like Berlin '45 with a few houseblocks might be interesting Undecided

Thanks for all the compliments folks!

Thank you Leon, we'll be adapting our own WW-2 rules 'Panzerkeil'.  They're very detailed so quite a lot of research is going into the WW-1 version with all the different weapons characteristics and tactics and we'll need quite a bit of testing to get all the details and 'feeling' right but the foundations are solid and, at least in the WW-2 settings, up to now give highly realistic results even when we play on battallion or brigade level. Mind you, that is in 1:1 in numbers... and then 20 mm....

Cheers,
Rob

Right on then,
The support weapons for my Stosstruppen are almost done... when I'm ready with these they'll have a full 12 men Flammenwerfer Gruppe with two KleiF's  and the accompanying handgrenade throwers, two HMG's, a Minenwerfer 75, a T-gewehr 18 (AT-rifle), a TaK 37mm (AT-gun) and a shortened Russian 76mm Inf. gun for the Nahkampf Batterie. Guess that should give them a fair chance against the first French T-17 platoon (5 tanks) that's also underway. Hopefully all will be done on thursday around noon so I can take 'em along to some friends for a quick 1918 try out!
Pictures will follow a.s.a.p.!

I really need to take some more pictures of the stuff I did recently but at least these pic's turned out half decent...
Some more scenery done for the 1918 bombed woodland complete with some German and French casualties, some dead horses, abandoned guns etc.
