Luftlandesturm Kompanie 1750 EW

Fearless Veterans, they are listed as "an elite within an elite force" in the FoW Burning Empires armybook.

I admit i had a tough time deciding which force to build for our early war invasion of the low countries campaign set to start in September. That is until Jeff suggested i build the Luftlandesturm company. After reading their the airborne assault rules and the death from above mission scenario...i fell head over heels for them. Probably isn't a coincidence that my other infantry army are the 101st Screaming Eagles ;)

Although we're using the Blitzkreig army book, i've managed to get an exception from the other campaigners.

So i went out over the weekend and managed to get this last copy of the book which is a must for any fallschirmjager nut.


And armed with that i present my Company Command and 2iC pioneer SMG team together with their cool ride...a DFS 230 glider.




Haven't been so stoked to paint up an army since my paras.

Next post will be about this beautiful bird :)

  3. That is one cool ME 262! Is that the BF model? If so how did you get it early?

  4. I love the glider! Its looks really good. Were they airbrushed? The glider also reminds of the old combat comics I used to read. =)

    4EM- yes, they were airbrushed. Couldn't have achieved that result without using one. i have another 10 gliders to go...
