The full weight of a 120 mm mortar platoon is more powerful than a much more expensive Allied artillery battery.
Peter Pig German observers and NCOs take advantage of Battlefront bricks to hide behind.
A couple of years ago I got tired of waiting for Battlefront to put out a German 120mm mortar platoon and I went shopping. I bought a blister from Battlehonors but I thought those castings looked too small compared to the rest of the Battlefront figures I had, so I didn’t use these. Next I went to Peter Pig and bought a number of packets to make a LW German heavy mortar platoon. I think the figures look fine compared to the Battlefront ones, and I do like the style of the sculpting. I fact, I have used several Peter Pig figures in German halftracks and they look fine. This platoon is a complete Peter Pig unit, though based on FOW bases. In battles so far they haven’t accomplished much, but I am always optimistic. With Confident Trained units, you have to be.
