I have been in a bit of a protracted hobby funk recently. I have struggled to get motivated to pick up a paint brush, let alone blog about it. Steve has been carrying the blog for some time now.
I have finally got around to painting up a recon platoon to go with mu Fallschirmjager army. Mobile recon is helpful with the FJ because they are a pretty static bunch. A lot of lists for them have infantry scout platoons for recon, which I did not like the look of. The Ersatz FJ in Bridge by Bridge have the option of a halftrack platoon, with a sdkfz 250/1 as command and 250/9s in support.
Battlefront were out of the 250/9s, so I sourced these guys from Forged in Battle. They have the built in base which I am not a fan of generally, but the quality of the casting was quite good and there was a lot of detail on the halftracks. Here are the pictures:
Hopefully it will get me motivated to do some more painting!
