Fallschirmjaeger Mortars

By Michael Cannon / January 12, 2008

This is an Artizan Designs set that I picked up on sale somewhere. The base is a 50 mm one and I have these mounted for use in SotTR by Westwind. The paints I used were a mixture of Reaper MSP, GW, and Vallejo Game and Model. What I tried to do was match the camoflague that is shown in the Diving Eagles supplement by Battlefront. This supplement is no longer in print but I did keep one to use as a reference. The log to the front of the position is made from green stuff.

I also have the following to flesh out this team:

  • 25 Riflemen
  • 2 LMGs
  • 2 HMGs
  • 2 PanzerSchrek crews
  • 4 SMGs
  • 3 with Asslt Rifles
  • 2 Paras with MP
  • 5 Para Officers

For those of you who look at this site to see what I have done for OSW I say, “Fear Not,” for as soon as I can get unpacked I will start on those figures again.

About the author

Michael Cannon

I have been wargaming as long as I can remember. I met my wife when I was 14 and had been gaming long before that so that should give you an indication as to how long it has been. One of the first games I owned was Anzio by Avalon Hill. I drove over to the hobby shop in the snow to pick it up as I finally had the money to get something! I can remember playing with Airfix figures and Roco tanks back in the 6th grade and before.
