Rather than succumb to a recent Black Tree Design offer of 50% discount against WWII infantry, I maintained a modicum of restraint and instead struck out to paint a few of these figures already resting at ease in The Lead Pile. My limited WWII interests tend to focus on the sideshows during the early campaigns of the war. Since German Gebirgsjager saw service in both Norway and Crete operations, German mountain troops seemed a reasonable addition to my British and German 28mm Chain of Command forces. A small pile of BTD Gerbirgsjager lay in The Lead Pile so I began by pulling enough figures to form one section. Going through the BTD Gebirgsjager lead I found enough figures to field a full platoon of three sections. A second section is on the painting desk now.The BTD figures looked good with much character in their unpainted state. After applying paint, I am even more impressed with these German mountain troops. Excellent figures with enough raised detail to make the figures a snap to paint. Looking forward to diving into the second section of these models. First, the painting desk is a bit backed up with several other units readying themselves for departure from the work station.
