Dirty Jon's German Halftracks

I continue with the theme of transports, transports, transports! I got these in the German Panzergrenadier Box Set -- it's a great deal to get 4 Half-tracks, a platoon of Grenadiers and a TON of decals. I needed some additional guys for my platoons and decided that the price could not be beat for what you get in the box. I had the old box, so no info on the plastic tracks, wheels and guns.

I went for my standard German Camo again. I will use these guys for Earth and Steel and Dogs & Devils lists.

The platoon rumbles through a French village on the way to the front.

The commander points out potential areas of danger -- leading from the front!

The troops are alert for any sign of US or British forces.

A river crossing is always dangerous -- look out for Bazookas!

I went for a clean look this time. Some people like a muddy vehicle, some do not. I will decide if I want to mud these up later -- for now, they are just new vehicles rushed up to the front.

Look great buddy, my bazookas like new targets :)

Looks great Jon, one question I've been meaning to ask is whether you guys keep the armored transports around and use them as fighting vehicles/support after they have dropped off their infantry cargo?

Dirty Jon said...

@Anatoli: Sometimes. If there are a ton of Stuarts around, they go to the rear. If I am facing, say, Paratroopers with limited AT, they stick around.

What Jon said. Check out some of my batreps with panzer lehr and you'll see when they've stuck around. We also talked a lot about this in episode 26!

Anatoli said...

Yeah I listened to that episode as well and most of the time that is the only sensible thing to do (send them to the rear). But with German halftracks in particular I myself would probably be tempted to keep them around for the extra firepower :-D
