Project Lehr: Painting Challenge

I decided to join Adam in his Project America with my own Project Lehr so that I can redo my lehr to a quality that I am happy with.

This list allows me to put in some strong infantry platoons (2 of 10, 1 of 8 and 1 of 6) as well as 3 bombardments. I have the 12cm mortars, 15cm rockets and the combined 12cm and 2 8cm mortars in the KG that go with 7 infantry teams to give me the third bombardment and fourth infantry platoon.

The Painting:

I have some halftracks finished and the 2cm HT Recce finished. I decided to throw the Recce up since they are the only full platoon that is completed so far.

I like these little guys as they will allow me to lift gtg and support the main thrust with a couple extra AA shots if needed. The models I spent some time applying battle damage through scratches and also rust marks (not sure the rust will show on the photos) and then converted a couple models and got out the putty in order to make a soldier manning the AAmg on the rear of the command HT. I am quite pleased if I do say so myself.

I am hoping to have the Heavy platoon and/or HQ dismounted teams finished and up for Sunday.
