A few shots of my Fallschirmjager platoons. I've been sitting on these for about 4 years and got a notion to paint them at the end of last year. Unfortunately I haven't quite worked out the best settings for my camera so the pictures didn't turn out brilliantly. Following is the best 5 shots from about 80 that I took.
This force consist of 2 platoons of rifle/MG, 9 stands per platoon with commander, overall company commander and company 2IC, a platoon of 4 HMGs with commander and a platoon of NbW35 10.5cm mortars with commander and spotters. I bought the mortars by mistake thinking they were ordinary infantry mortars. All figures are Battlefront Miniatures.
The camo pattern is my interpretation of Splittermuster 31, splinter pattern. One thing I noticed when researching this force is that most painters paint headbands on the helmets however I could only find 1 picture in hundreds that actually showed it in real life.

No, they are NOT retreating!
