Fully Painted- Konflikt ’47 US troops
I recently finished painting US Army troops for Konflikt '47, by Warlord Games. I had 2 goals with this project; To get them quickly painted and on the table, and to work with decals for the first time. Because of my first goal, I did base coats and washes, but skipped some of the finer details, and highlight layers I usually spend time on. I figure I can always go back and add more details later! Every model in this project has at least one decal. Every trooper has a unit insignia on their left shoulder (or wing!), and some have flags and/or rank marks on the right shoulders. A few of the models have rank marks on their helmets. Vehicles and walkers have logos, and ID markers. I got a LOT of decal practice with this group!
This is the M49A-T Sherman tank with tesla cannon, nicknamed "The Bomb". The stowage pieces on this tank are resin bits I got at a local model shop, M&Models. I soaked the piece on the turret in hot water to shape it to the turret's curve.
Here is a little jeep. It is armed with a heavy machine gun, that I will probably play as a medium machine gun. I modeled the front wheels as if it is turning a corner, or avoiding something in the road.
This is the M5A2 Coyote light walker. It is armed with 2 punching fists, and medium and heavy machine guns.
This is the M5A6 Jackal light walker. It has a medium machine gun on one arm, and a flame thrower on the other (and punching fists!). This walker has a jump pack that lets it jump great distances across the battlefield.
This is the M2A Mudskipper medium walker. It has twin forward facing autocannons, a forward facing medium machine gun, and has weapon options for the arms. It can either take heavy machine guns, or twin bazookas on each arm. I included them both on the model, because it looks so much cooler that way. It also has a jump pack.
This 2 man sniper team is ready to take out high profile targets.
The bazooka team proved very useful in my first game, taking out a tank, and some infantry.
The US infantry have a lot of options. I can field them as one large blob, with an SMG equipped sergeant, 2 Browning Automatic rifles, and a lot of bolt action rifles. I can also split them into multiple smaller groups if necessary. Officers are all smoking cigars, so they are easily distinguished.
This is the Heavy trooper super bazooka team. I love these models!
Here are the standard Heavy Troopers. These guys are very durable on the battlefield, getting wounded on a 6+.
Here is a squad of US jump infantry. These models were what made my decision to start a US force for Konflikt '47. Most of them are armed with Thompson SMGs, but there are 2 Browning Automatic rifles, and a flamethrower also. This box has 10 metal minis with 7 unique sculpts!
I am looking forward to fielding these troops with the jumping walkers for a VERY mobile fighting force.
Here are 3 individual "heroes" for Konflikt '47.
This is supposed to represent Lt. Ronald Spiers from Band of Brothers.
This is Sergeant Rock. He has a Thompson SMG in each hand, and a lot of grenades. His unit insignia is tattooed on his shoulder.
This is Slammer Samuels, Paragon Trooper. He is a special character, a captain, armed with a tesla rifle, and gauntlet. He's basically a Captain America style super soldier.
I am looking forward to getting these guys on the battlefield soon. I plan on fielding an all jump-troop force in a game tomorrow, so keep an eye out for the battle report later this week.
