HJ PanzerGrenadiers

Below are some select troops to represent my HJ 12SS PanzerGrenadiers who fought around the city of Caen in WWII. I refurbished many of my PanzerGrenadiers from this collection but wanted to highlight the new poses from TQD, some converts, and a couple favorite refurbs. The men clustered on the right in my rendition of Italian Camo were inspired by photos from June 1944 that were taken outside of the town of Rots. The figures are headswapped ESCI German paras some with greenstuff modifications to their helmets to look like helmet covers. Hope you enjoy!

Cheers,

(I’ve included some pictures I used for inspiration after the shots of my newly painted soldiers)

Also check our the bonus fig I received can you guess who it is?

US command, radios, and MG

Here are some new AB US troops for my Normandy army. I love the poses and am thinking of replacing all my plastic US troops eventually with the rest of the outstanding line from AB…. Or at least field them as 1st platoon! Many thanks to Anthony Barton and Eureka for continuing this amazing line of metal 20mm soldiers. Looking forward to my next order from Eureka USA! Outstanding!!

Some Flavor Bits

Here is a destroyed Sherman from airfix, and an HO wagon I do not know the make of. The Sherman is 1/76 and does not fit well with my other Sherman’s so I thought I’d turn it into a wreck and also use the tracks as spares for stowage on future allied tanks. Both pieces should fit in nicely in my Normandy battles. Hope you enjoy!

Cheers,

Ted
