About Me

A mythical beast - a female wargamer! I got back into wargaming in the summer of 2011 after a very, very long break and haven't looked back since. I must admit that I seem to be more of a painter/collector than a gamer, but do hope to correct that at some point in the near future. My gaming interests span the ages, from the "Biblical" era all the way through to the far future. I enjoy games of all sizes, from a handful of figures up to major battles (see my megalomaniacally sized Choson Korean and Russian Seven Years War armies).

Finished: First 12 Figures for Waffen SS Core Platoon


As predicted, varnishing these had to wait until today. These are the first figures for my core platoon, so are in autumn Oak Leaf pattern camo.

Platoon HQ Group

The platoon HQ group in Chain of command consists of a senior leader (as these are SS, a Scharfuhrer or Unterscharfuhrer) and a two-man Panzerschreck team.

Junior Leaders

These are the squad leaders, either Unterscharfuhrer or Rottenfuhrer.

MG 42 Teams


Assistant Gunners

For infantry platoons I need three MG42 teams; for Panzergrenadier platoons I need six. 

All of these figures are from Artizan.

I'm still waiting for the "reinforcements" to arrive from The Assault Group. Until they arrive and I can sort out which riflemen and MG42 team figures will be going to the core platoon and support squad, I only have a few figures which I can paint - I'll be starting on them tomorrow. I might have to resort to assembling some of the vehicular supports.
