1/72 (20mm) Late War German Fallschirmjager: Part 1 (Pegasus Hobbies)

1/72 Pegasus Hobbies German Fallschirmjager

 

 

Pegasus Hobbies produces a 1/72 scale (20mm) set of German Fallschirmjager, depicting the elite German paratroopers (Fallschirmjager) in the later years of the war (i.e. the Panzerschreck, which one of the miniatures is armed with, was introduced in 1944).  The figures wear the distinctive Fallschirmjager helmets and paratrooper smocks.  This set comes with two sprues of 20 figures (40 figures in total), and each sprue includes the following:

  • 8x Fallschirmjager with Kar 98K rifles
  • 5x Fallschirmjager with MP40 submachine guns
  • 1x Fallschirmjager with an FG-42 assault rifle
  • 3x Fallschirmjager with Panzerfausts
  • 1x Fallschirmjager with a Panzerschreck
  • 1x NCO/Officer with MP40 submachine gun
  • 1x Fallschirmjager with a MG42 machine gun.

I painted one of the sprues, which consists of the figures listed above.  For the smocks/jackets and helmets, I used the Splittermuster pattern (splinter pattern) of camouflage.  For the jump pants, I used Luftwaffe Grey.
