Next up on the 20mm carousel is some Elhiem West German troops, and, as a bonus, a Revell plastic 1/72 scale Fox vehicle ("Fuchs"). Let me just get this out of the way: I'm not a modeller. I'm not good at it, I don't like it, and I don't have the patience for it. And I keep hearing how 20mm is so attractive because you can pick up stuff in plastic for cheap, but that was not the case here. In any case, I got it, I put it together, and it works. Why the Fox vehicle? Well, it's all my local hobby shop had in 1/72 that would work; I wanted an armored vehicle that was fairly generic (in order to be whatever I wanted it to be), and this fits the bill.
Regarding the figures, once again I don't really have a use for modern (or, in this case, Cold War) German troops for wargaming. But I really liked the troops, and I wanted something that looked like this to be used in my Balkans campaign, to play the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia troops, and these guys are perfect.
And a few throwaway pics of the militia from my last 20mm post (where the pics were so dark).
Well, that's it, fight's are almost here.
