The Flak Batterie have been relocated to Holland for some rest and recuperation. But it would appear that the British have different plans...

In order to deal with the new threat, the platoon has been rearmed with an old and worn, but serviceable 8.8cm Flak 36.
Finally my flak-helferinnen will be able to do what they were trained to do: Reload anti-aircraft rounds!

I will post more pictures when the cannon is based, but that could be a while, and I wanted to show off the results so far.

I wouldn't have liked to be in the Tetrach, hundreds of rounds smashing into the side with the bloody tank stalling and getting no where....

I had 4 Germans left over from my Wargames Factory Boxed set and decided I would assemble them as an MG42 Heavy Machine Gun team.

As an experiment I undercoated the uniforms black and drybrushed them twice using lighter shades of grey. It's not too different from the other models.

Right from the beginning I assembled enough models to field the platoon as Panzergrenadiers. I have finally gotten around to actually finishing some transports and panzers for them:

Nice, I love the "improvised" additional armour on the StuG.

Light in Denmark is never really great at winter-time, but this is as good as it gets until spring.

I finished two more SdKfz 251/1s to transport my germans when fielding them as Panzergrenadiers.

Number 121 is the platoon commander's halftrack carrying heavy oil drums, and sporting a scratch-built tarp.

Number 122 is 1st squad's halftrack. They added a few sandbags as additional protection for the pintle gunner.

I just laid the final hand on a squad of sturmpioniere.

Armed with flamethrower, panzerschreck, MG34, STGs and demolition charges they are able to take on anything.

Great battered and bruised effect on all those.

I just added a mortar for the guys. Nothing like a little indirect fire support to get the tommies out of their foxholes...
