Norway 1940, The Road to Dombas.

Post by silverwhistle39 »

Hi, I don't know if any of you have seen the excellent CoC mini campaign in issue 100 of Wargames Soldiers & Strategy The road to Dombas, Norway 1940. I have been making and painting everything that I need in preparation for this campaign but need the Norwegian National flag for the Patrol Markers and JOP's. I think there used to be a file on this forum for all the different Nationalities that could be printed off and glued to the markers but I can't seem to find it, if anyone can help please?
I have just updated my blog if anyone is interested in this campaign. www.wargamingwithsilverwhistle.blogspot.com
Cheers,
Pat.

Clever conversion of Warlord Games plastic winter germans to Norwegians!
I have heard that Great Escape Games have plans for a Norwegian infantry for Weserubung in the future.

Iztvan is spot on, the Norwegians are Warlord plastic winter Germans in great coats with mainly a paint conversion, leaving off most of the kit and making sure they are rifle armed. LMG given a magazine and the HMG teams are Warlord Belgian figures with water cooled MG.

Amazing to see someone do this campaign with such lovely figures and terrain. Thanks for posting about it here or I'd have been oblivious.

Is Bob Connor on this forum? Love to see/hear what he did to make the greatcoated Germans in to Norwegians. Just need a couple of boxes of WLG Winter Germans and some metals for conversion. Headgear is the main conversion when wearing greatcoats from what I can see but keen to know paint usage.

Following that last post, placed a small order with Gorgon to provide me with Commands, LMGs and some riflemen. Will still look at WLG plastic Winter infantry to provide the rank and file.
