(WWII) Z is for Zugtrupp!

Over the weekend I've been working in fits and starts on my German Grenadier Platoon and today finished the Platoon HQ Section (or Zugtrupp as the Germans call it).

Initially I planned to just have a three man unit and drop the second "team" but on further reading of the army lists in Battlefield Evolution: World at War I found the part of the unit I planned on dropping was a Panzerschreck team. Consequently I have moved my Panzerschreck team from being a Support Asset to a Command Asset.

As the rest of the Platoon will be scooting around the tabletop in their natty half-tracks, the Zugtrupp will have to follow suit (the Zugführer insisted). This means I will need to model a fourth half-track as an SdKfz 251/10 with its 37 mm Pak 36 anti-tank gun mount. Not sure it will do much more than scratch the paint on the Red Hordes T34's though...
