German Infantry Guns: 7.5cm lelIG18

I needed to paint up some 7.5cm lelIG18 guns for the upcoming tournament, so I went with the Hermann Göring GE558 version to go with all the stuff I am making out of Dogs and Devils. These little guys are great to use for pinning... though with only 2 guns you have to re-roll hits ...or for supplemental AT. With ROF 2, AT 9 and a 3+ FP, they cannot be ignored. They are especially good for Mid-War, as they are only costing me 70 points!



FROM BATTLEFRONT

The 7.5cm leIG18 was developed by Rheinmetall following WWI. It was adopted by the Wehrmacht in 1927 and remained in service until 1945. It had a unique loading system. The breech was fixed and the end of the barrel was hinged. The gun was then loaded 'shotgun' style by elevating the breech end of the barrel..

Anatoli is right, very cool. What material did you use for the radio antenna?
