Greek WW2 Infantry Platoon for Chain of Command

Spending a few days in Greece, so I thought I would do a Greek Rifle Platoon based on some Burns 15mm miniatures from the lead mountain, I also had bought a pack of Flames of War Greeks in the past (there is a HQ pack or something).  In trying to make what I had into a platoon with some supports, I bought some Italian LMGs (walking and lying down) and AT Rifles and an AT Gun from Peter Pig.  Although not strictly the same type of uniforms it did not bother me so I lived with it.  As for all these Platoons I am doing I have decided to get them done quickly and the painting is done in that fashion – 2 to 3 sessions per platoon and support – that is it.

I based my painting on some great re-enactor images I found on the net (link here).  The uniform I painted was basically Vallejo US Olive drab highlighted with Brown Violet.

The platoon composition I found on this (link here) really good source that contains a lot of different platoons.

Here is the one for the Greek Platoon.

And here are the models I made…

The Platoon HQ – Lt. with a gun and I did a second in command as I did not read the list correctly (ignore him for now).

One of the three squads.

All of the squads

Lying down LMG teams

Support options

Some extra rifle-men

Anti-tank gun

Mortar Teams

Anti-tank Rifle teams

Sniper Team

HMG Teams

Good enough for the table!

/ Hope that was of some interest, now I am doing s##t all for a while.

Next up some Russians to fight the Finns, then perhaps some Italian Bersaglieri to fight these Greeks.
