German Megablitz collection

Having managed to get all of my Soviet MEGABLITZ collection out of its storage boxes and onto my tabletop, I decided to do the same for my much smaller German collection.

The full collection can be seen in the following two photographs:



The figures and vehicles in the front have already been organised into formations. These are (from top to bottom):
  • 384th Infantry Division
  • 389th Infantry Division
  • 15th Field Division (Luftwaffe)

The figures and vehicles at the back have yet to be organised into larger formations and include:
  • 4 Motor Transport stands (2 half-tracks and 2 trucks)
  • 6 Light Transport stands (all Kubelwagens)
  • 1 Infantry Gun stand
  • 3 Rifle Infantry stands
  • 5 Machine Gun stands (4 Wehrmacht and 1 Luftwaffe)
  • 3 Mortar stands (2 Wehrmacht and 1 Luftwaffe)

I am not quite sure what I can do with these 'odds and sods', although they would make quite a formidable coastal defence force.

Please note that the pictures used in this blog entry are quite large, and can be enlarged by clicking on them.

  1. Hi Bob,

    I think you have achieved a first with this collection - it is the first time I have seen a WW2 German set up without armour!

    (I am sure its lurking in a drawer somewhere though)

    All the best,

  2. David Crook,

    There are some unbased German tanks that will form part of the finished collection if and when I can get around to it!

    Mind you, there are also quite a few unbased T-34s as well ...

    All the best,

    Bob

  3. That last lot has the makings of a late war 6-battalion infantry div. The 75mmIG can be used as the art regt.

  6. BigRedBat,

    The pile of unpainted lead I own has probably three times as many Soviet troops in it as there are on my tabletop ... and there are a whole load of T-34s as well!

    All the best,

    Bob

  7. Another nice collection Bob- all you need to do now is come up with a scenario using both forces....

    Cheers,

    Pete.

  8. Pete,

    Almost all of the collection was used in a MEGABLITZ battle that I staged some years ago for the benefit of a wargames club in Norfolk. A report of the battle can be found here.

    All the best,

    Bob

  10. Pete,

    It seemed to go down well, and I have actually re-used the scenario a couple of times since, and each time it has produced a different result.

    All the best,

    Bob
