The new Perry releases has inspired me to get to work on my Mediterranean theatre German infantry. My aim is to build a force suitable for the desert or for the Sicily/Italy campaigns.
I aim to build 3x 8 man squads to begin with, each with 2 LMGs to represent a panzer grenadier platoon. I must say that I enjoyed putting together the Perry infantry far more than I did the Bolt Action EW Germans which are IMO far too fiddly with too many pieces. In fact in future I will be going with metals rather than with the BA plastics, and have just ordered some BTD Russians as I can't face assembling the BA plastic ones.
My only gripe with the Perry's is a lack of extra weapons, in fact there is a shortage of rifles in the box set. To rectify this I am using some arms from the Warlord Games Germans to add more variety. Some of the arms are a bit long so have been shortened slightly but overall the work pretty well.
A few Bolt Action additions to the Perry minis.
My only question being in the main rulebook it states 2 LMGs for +20pts, not +20pts each. Everyone else gets 1 for 20pts, I wonder if this is a typo.
