Steve McQueen would not be impressed, even in the cooler.
The full platoon in their BMWs. Who needs a Harley?
Obertsturmfuhrer Wittman, need a ride?
A couple of basing notes. I started on this platoon a LONG time ago, before the publishment of the Blitzkrieg EW supplement. That book suggested two motorcycle and sidecar combinations for the platoon. On the other hand, another book I have, Panzers in Normandy Then and Now showed that the recon platoon in the panzer abteilung had regular motorcycles. Anyway, I started the platoon with the idea that I would split the difference and show both. Long after I lost interest in finishing the platoon I felt I would rather have my brains eaten out by aliens then go back and paint another couple of side cars and riders. As such, the stands have one motorcycle and sidecar combination and one regular motorcycle per medium base. The command stand is just a motorcycle and sidecar combination. Either way, I hope they get destroyed early.
The FOW battered desert for in the background has nothing to do with LW or Normandy or Villers Bocage. It IS really neat though and I couldn't resist it.
