Soldat Koslowski, Operation Basilica
To get my Guardsmen a littel more WW2 style they need gear. Also I don't just want to dismiss their original gear. So this is what I did.
First I bought one of those:
This is a Tamiya German Infanterie sprue. In german toy shops they cost around 5,49 €. In it is this Sprue:
|Full view, bad quality though.|
|Closeup of the Gear section|
So we have there full gear for 8 Tamiya soldiers. Gas mask bins (the round ones with the lines on it), eating gear (Pickpot in German), and the Bottle with the cup on top (Feldflasche). As I use only one or two pieces on each guardsmen they will be enough for 25 to 30 guardsmen.
So I will show how I used it:
|Gas mask bin, the rest is just the usual gear. Gives the mini a very WW2 style imo.|
|Same thing, just a Stabhandgranate.|
|MP 40 ammo pouch and Feldflasche. Also a Sword from the Catachan Commando sprue as Sergeants need to have CCW these days.|
|The Panzerjäger has a Fieldbag on his back. I think it is from a Tamiya sprue for an PAK 38 anti tank gun. I have the sprue here somewhere...|
|Feldwebel Baummann with his LP 40, ammo pouch and Pickpot. And his trusty sword.|
So next is some sculpting on the specialists, then the PAL 38 (Panzerabwehrlaserkanone M41 538).
