More Fallschirmjägers(28mm)

Here are some new pictures of my growing Disposable Heroes Fallschirmjäger force in 28mm.First up is a team firing a MG 42 on an assault.I really like the dramatic posing of this team as it gives a great impression of a moving assault,but I imagine the FJ holding the MG up might not hear very well for a few hours!The other is a FJ with a FG 42 assault gun that was designed specifically for Fallschirmjägers.It was light weight assault rifle and was one of the most advanced weapons of the war and influenced subsequent assault rifles in the modern era.However,it only saw limited use in the war.

  1. This is great stuff! The obvious hearing problem danger has long puzzled me, so that I have purchased a miniature from Foundry in approximately the same posture to try and go around the problem.

    Might I add that the weapon of the other guy is NOT the StG 44 but a FG 42 ?

  5. Great work, mate! The double miniature base is particularly stunning! Love the base-work and the paint-job.

    As for the hearing problem... I think the guy's cheek got welded to the muzzle. He has no choice but to be there. :) He's awfully close to the hot muzzle, isn't he? Still... stylish pose.

  7. Thank you everyone!:-)

    Thank you jdavias in pointing that out to me.:-) I should have researched the weapon better instead of making assumptions.I always appreciate helpful tips!I'll correct that shortly.

    Your right Doc,his(MG 42's) cheeks are probably burned as well.Looks like he drew the short straw!

  8. Having just done some of Artizan's Fallschirmjager figures myself, I am hugely impressed with the results you've achieved. The camo smocks are stunning. The trouble you have taken with the bases also a brilliant effect. Huge admirer of your work Mr Axebreaker.

    Cheers,
    Doc
