The Blitzkrieg Continues

My latest offerings are a Warlord Games Panzer 2, a Warlord Games SDKFZ 222 and a Minairons Henschel Type 33 Truck all in 1/56.

The Henschel Type 33 is a big truck and scales well.  The kit is a lovely resin kit and goes together well with minimal cleanup.

The SdKFZ 222 and the Panzer 2 are based on the German early war camouflage scheme.  They are both Warlord Resins.  They will do well as they storm across Europe.

Foundry Miniatures Kradshutzen

I recently picked up the Foundry Miniatures German Motorcycle troops, AKA Kradshutzen from Foundry Miniatures.  You can find their range of excellent 28mm Miniatures here.

These miniatures are sculpted by Alan and Michael Perry and put simply are brilliant.  They scale very well with Warlord's range and you can find a comparison on Silver Whistle's blog here.

I picked up the majority of their Blitzkrieg era Germans and... well... I want more they are that good!

The motorcycle troops are extremely easy to put together.  The motorcycle itself comes in 3 parts.  A small base, the bike and handle bars with hands sculpted onto it.  They are easy to assemble and much easier than Artizan Miniatures Fallshirmjager Motorcycle with sidecar.  The Foundry sidecar was very easy to assemble.  The Foundry Sidecar does not come with a MG34 however it would be easy to add one on with some plastics etc.

On the table these will complement any Blitzkrieg German Army well.  Its a shame that we will not see them as much in Bolt Action Version 2 however Historical Accuracy or theme should always be chosen over gaminess.  These will also be used for Battlegroup Blitzkrieg.

Painted up they simply look great.  I will definitely have to get more of these guys.

Bringing in the Polish Support

It has been a busy month at the Left Handed Panzerfaust.  Much goodness updating to be done!

I am back painting some Poles and did some support options.  I also painted an anti-tank gun to use with the already painted Medium Howitzer Crew however I decided not to photograph it.
