A couple weeks ago, I posted a quick discussion about how MG Gavin was so impressed with the panzerfaust that the 82nd collected up truckloads of them in Sicily. Soon after a drop, when the heavy equipment arrived, these trucks of panzerfausts would follow the troops. He even had the instructions for their use translated into English. For my 28mm WWII project I wanted to equip US paras with panzerfausts, but when I posted to TMP to see if anyone made the figures, the answer was “no.”
At Historicon last weekend I got a bag of Berlin or Bust 28mm paras with rifles from Old Glory. A couple weeks ago I ordered panzerfausts from The Assault Group. This morning, I started hacking at the figures to remove the rifles and insert the panzerfausts.
These aren’t award-winning quality conversations, but I am pretty happy with the results. I can’t wait to spring these on some unsuspecting German players in an upcoming scenario.
