German Parachute Regiment : Sealion

I have gradually been working on some Fallschirmjager reinforcements for my Sealion project. A bit of time over the last few days and a bit of elbow grease and they are pretty much completed. As part of my Sealion campaign I am keen to play some smaller Parachute and glider based scenarios so wanted to get the regiment up to a proper independent force.

The reinforcements are Crusader minatures which I really like, nicely cast a good chunky size and a good range of early war troops in a range of poses.
The command squad...I plan to use the radio operator as a Forward observation unit to call in the Stuka 
Medium/Heavy weapon support, 5 cm mortar and an antitank gun I believe it is a PzB38/39
Two MG 34 teams
The rest of the Rifle and submachine gun armed jagers
So I have reached this stage so far .....
Combining all my Fallschirmjager together I can muster effectively 12 units. As veterans they will be fairly tough, have just enough heavy support to deal with any British tanks and including the observer and the Stuka gives a bit more flexibility (and fun), hopefully get them in a battle soon.

  3. These look great, expect lots of confused Brits entering the fray in random directions unprepared for the Bosch

  4. Great looking selection of FJs! Well done.
    Are you planning any 'drop' scenarios with a scramble for weapons from drop tubes?

    1. Thanks. Yes I am looking at a range of scenrios, although probably after they have picked up their weapons ! Hopefully they will be employed capturing a series of key strategic locations across Kent, cross roads, bunkers, airfields and more. It would be interesting to make them fight to pick up kit as well it would make a good mini scenario with the drop canisters as objectives.
