Wonder, that is, why they hell I decided to do this force. Basically, because I just love the little Sdkfz 250 series of vehicles. Tiny little armoured personnel carriers, enough space to carry half a squad of men but costing practically the same to build as a full size Sdkfz 251 Hanomag.
But they are pretty little things.
The figures and vehicles are all Plastic Soldier Company. In fact the figures are the same models I used for my Blitzkrieg Germans, just painted in fieldgrey trousers instead of light grey. The vehicles are beautiful little models. They come five to a box with a variety of options, APC version(250/1), mortar carrier(250/7), recce (250/9), Pak(250/10) and Panzerbusche(250/11). The last one also includes the ground mount for the sPzB41 2.8cm squeezebore gun, which is going to be useful for my Falschirmjagers!
So, here is my attempt at a Chain of Command list for a Reconnaissance Panzer-Grenadier platoon. It has been checked over by the rules author, so is sort of TFL approved. I'm going to give it a try anyway, just need to get some Russians as opposition.
I also have another additional pair of Sd250/1's finished, to transport any support options such as engineer or MG teams. So here are the ten Sdkfz 250's all together. Look impressive, but I have a feeling that they are going to blow up easily.
So there it is, my latest addition to my Chain of Command forces. Catch you later.
