My new toys ready for action

I am very pleased with my newly discovered Adler Miniatures WW2 infantry models.  They are nominally 6mm, but actually 8mm tall, and fit well with GHQ 1:285 models.

I have painted up some German Gebirgsjaeger, Pioneers and machine gun teams in marching mode.  They have good action poses and are well detailed, in fact so well that the guns are very fragile and have a tendency to snap off if care is not taken.

I mounted my new troops on the bases from Renedra.  These are slightly thicker than the 1.5mm MDF I have used previously, but have the benefit of being precut with a slightly sloping edge and a roughened surface to take glue well.

Both manufacturers are highly recommended.

Here is the initial German assault force for Cuckmere Haven, 17th September 1940.  The central group is Adler, as are the pioneers in the left foreground and the mortar team left rear.  Other models to the left are GHQ and the floating gun platform is scratch-built from kit components.  88mm Guns are by Heroics & Ros and the crew GHQ.
