Well - here we are again... This time I thought I'd show you some of my recently (like 2 days ago) completed West German Infantry.
Before I jump into it, I first have to say that the "new" Elhiem West German Infantry are simply some of the best miniatures I've ever had the pleasure to paint. The poses are all excellent, very natural, well studied, with great attention to anatomy, weapons, uniforms etc. I simply love these figures and can't wait for Matt at Elhiem to add to the West German line - to match his excellent BAOR range.
Anyway - that's enough waffling from me - onto the photos - in no particular order:
This photo is what I'm calling Officers and NCOs. The chaps pointing actually come from the BW02 and NAT02 rifleman sets while the chap kneeling down looking though bino's comes from the BW05 Milan ATGM team set. I'm using the pointers as NCOs, with one of the bino chaps as a Platoon officer (until a proper one comes out) and the other as part of a FOO team.
These 2 shots show a variety of things - from the left - a RTO - basically a standard rifleman from BW02 with a greenstuff radio backpack added by me. Next are 2 Carl Gustav gunners from BW04. The final chap is an old Elhiem figure firing a Redeye SAM. He is out of production - but I'm assuming Matt is planning a better version of him some time in the future.
These are all the standard Riflemen that come from BW01, BW02, NAT01 and NAT02. I decided to get one pack each of the NAT01 and NAT02 so I could have a little more variety - basically they come with plain helmets.
So that's all my new West German infantry.
More West German goodness to follow soon.
