Putting the Brrrrrrrr in Blitzkrieg : Operation Sealion

A couple more evenings work and the Kradschutzen are completed. Pretty easy to paint and as usual Agrax Earthshade covers a multitude of my painting sins. Happy with the result, though I do need to get one more outrider but I forgot to look at York so will have to wait for a future order to Blacktree who made these.
Part of the reason to get a few more of these Germans completed is I am putting on another demo game at Dumfries show in early March, I have pretty much all the figures I need already painted but want a few more iconic units on the table. I do have quite a few other terrain bits to complete......and more details of the Battle to follow soon.
