After the depressing, yet educational, session with the StuGs, I have moved on to another area of my army - the mortars.
I have just finished painting up two platoons of mortars. One is a complete 120mm platoon, and the other is a 80mm platoon - this is not a complete platoon.
Let's start off with the 80mm mortar platoon first. According to the Grenadier Company in the rulebook, a 80mm mortar team can have up to 6 mortar teams, 3 observer teams, and a NCO team. In the heavy weapons box set from Plastic Soldier Company, you only get 4 sprues. So I could only do 4 mortar teams, 2 observer teams, and a NCO team. See the picture below.
Next up is the 120mm mortar platoon. This is made up of 4 teams of 120mm mortars with 2 observer teams and a NCO team. There is the option of adding two RSO fully tracked trucks, which I will add eventually.
Until next time, farewell and good health;
