This will be my blog for my bolt action Fallschirmjager.

I decided I was gonna play the green devils to pay homage to how my nerding began back when I was a bit more of a yoof.

I played Fallschirmjager in Flames Of War and had a force specifically based upon the 6th Fallschirmjäger Regiment and their final stand in Normandy and later the Netherlands.


By the end of the war, the 6th were a mixture of elite veterans of the Italy campaign and any other soldiers that they could muster.


With this in mind, my plan is to have a army of paras backed up by heer or even Luftwaffe troops if I can find the figures.


At this stage I have the following;

FJ Command

2 x squads of FJ

Medium Mortar

Medic

30 odd plastic heer troops at Adams house.

Hetzer


No close ups yet, but hopefully this shows that I am making a good amount of progress on getting them done for the demo day!

Just realised there is a swastica in their logo.

Let me know on here or by pm if it offends you and I will remove.

Great looking forward to this. I see no reason for this to cause offense as it is a historically based thread rather than a political one and I'm sure you don't or would post any thing that supports the policies on here.

Will try and get some decent pics when I can!

This comes up almost on every WW2 gaming forum about the Swastika. I thnk Rayner has it spot on its historical and its wargaming not politics! Personally I think this only brought up by people who deliberatly go out to enrage the wargaming community for a purpose I wish I knew the purpose.

This is a superb thread, am looking forward to more. As with Jack's swastika comment, I also found myself looking for a historical SS Division that wouldn't be a controversial choice to base my force on (the Leibstandarte for example), so as not to offend anyone. Strange how you go about picking in different environments.

This is always a bit of a 'hot potato' from what I've seen on other forums and message boards, by that I mean both the swastika and the choice of German (and other nations) military units to 'adopt'. Personally I think you pays your money, you takes your choice. I don't think I'd be happy 'playing' at genuine genocide or using units and formations that were infamous for their poor wartime conduct. On the other hand the lines can get blurred sometimes. Weird World War II and 'German Zombies' are really popular yet the Ahnenerbe were responsible for some horrific acts at Dachau. Part of the reason I like the idea of playing Volkssturm forces are they're made up of the common man, defending his homeland/being duped into taking up arms... But even the Volkssturm could be deemed controversial as they were set up by and came under the command of the Nazi Party rather than the German army! :?

On the swastika... My guys are 15mm. I'll be lucky if I'm able to paint their faces! :wink: :lots of love:

I completely understand the don't makes heros of the ones who committed horrific crimes but just because a certain player is playing an army that has committed them doesn't mean he subscribes to those ideas of views. People shouldn't be killing each other full stop if we are going to be at the height of morale and ethical ideas. We are playing a game to recreate military opperations of the war nothing more.
