This is my German Motorized Panzer Grenadier Company for Flames of War.

The unit is primarily based on the 2nd Panzer Division in Normandy 1944, but is generic enough to cover a broad range of late war German needs.

This was not painted by me but by Les K. Les is a friend and local painter of incredible skill. Once you see the pictures I know you will agree.

I hope you enjoy the pictures.

The Armor Support...

A workhorses any German armor force Mark IVs
Image

Image

Classic and dependable Stug IIIs
Image

The best looking tank in the war (IMHO)
Image

Image

Image

A gift. I had to buy a second one so the first one wouldn't feel alone. Especially against the JS tanks my freinds fields.

Image

Other Support...

A small infantry recon unit, no LMG support. This was made with left over figures.
Image

Grille H's, 150mm direct fire support
Image

Recon Halftracks
Image

The only thing to deter the allied Jabbos
Image

Invaluable Artillery Support
Image

Tiger Objective

What a lovely army - beautifully painted with some lovely detail, and well balanced capabilities.

And I agree with you: the panther wasthe best all round German tank of the war.
Doesnt mean I dont have soft spot for the StuG or Tigers though!

I have never used an airbrush, although I own one. I cant believe you can make soft camo lines that small, though. Amazing.

(Im too chicken to try)

Really, Mr. STuG? I'd never have guessed.

That is an amazing looking army though. Very well done.

Beautiful army. Although I must say IMO Tiger is the best looking tank. Why? Well, it looks just like a heavy tank should: big, brutal and menacing. Panther and King Tiger are just too sleek. Of course, from protection POV you can't beat sloped armor but from purely aesthetetical POV you just can't beat Tiger.

Beautiful army! Too bad we were not in the general area of each other, those would be the perfect foes for my US armor/airborne, which are set for same location/period.
