Panzer Pioneer Platoon

Pioneer platoon for my re-vamped Panzergrenadier/armoured battlegroup

Sdkfz 251/7D
Ancient (at least 30yrs old) Skytrex model, repaired, stowed up and repainted, the gunner is an Esci plastic

10-man pioneer platoon
A mix of Britannia and Grubby figures

Extra bits
A moving 80mm mortar team
These are from Grubby and were formally Fallschirmjäger but after a bit of cutting and scraping and a Raventhorpe head-swap they have become grenadiers.


  1. These are really nice. I like that you are re purposing old models. This is a scale I have always liked but never gotten into :(

  2. Truth is i`m too tight to buy a new model, when I already own one (be it old and poorly painted).

    20mm is my favourite scale, great for modelling - I can modify figures, fuck around with the models, etc but still small enough to hide how shit my painting is :)

    I find my painting isn`t good enough when it comes to larger scales, I`m always disappointed with the results.......
