Super-heavy Rockets

This week I cranked out some 30cm Nebelwerfers. You may recall that I did six Nebelwerfer bases and magnetized the 15cm and 21cm launchers. I've now added the 30s to this scheme as well. I know the rockets the crew are loading are not the right ones, but these days I care less about that and more about having miniatures in my condensed collection I must keep due to lack of storage space.

So, I got a pair of blisters of 30cm NW42 Rocket Launcher (GE595) and painted up all six weapons. I added the crew to my bits box for a future project, except I kept the six guys holding 30cm rockets aside. 

Once all of the guns were done, I painted up the crewmen holding the rockets and based them individually to use as Full Salvo tokens (see the Super Heavy Rockets rule). In the end I think they turned out alright and I'm excited to get them on the battlefield!


Next up is a little project I like to call "Mike's Bocage Removal Services, Ltd." But you should be able to read all about that in an upcoming Battlefront People article. Here's a little preview :)


Thanks for reading, and happy gaming until next time!

  3. Nice. Been doing a simikar thing with my FJ anti tank guns now that I have put my PAK 40 on medium bases. Will need to do the same with the Nebs.
