BTD German Gebirgsjager - Section 3

A third section of Black Tree Designs' German Gebirgsjager marches off from the painting desk.  With these thirteen mountain troops, a full three section platoon can be fielded for Chain of Command.  Remaining in The Lead Pile are two more officers and one more LMG team for the German Mountain infantry.  I may add these four remaining figures into the painting queue with expectations of pressing them into service as platoon HQ. 
As with the two sections before, the BTD figures are really an easy painting diversion without a lot of complications from uniform or equipment accouterments.  Great figures with much character.  Oh, and good value when snatched up when on sale!
Added into the painting queue along with the German platoon HQ are two British mortar teams.  Having completed two German platoons and at least one British platoon, thoughts ought to turn towards getting these lads into a game.

  4. Really impressive brushwork to bring up all those details and to make WWII tactical uniforms "pop".

  5. Agreed, nicely done. Any sources for a Mortar team or snipers?

    1. Thanks! I have not looked at anyone outside of BTD. I wonder if BTD's mortar team would be an appropriate substitute? For sniper, I would not be ashamed to press a BTD Waffen SS sniper into service.
