More Megablitz units

Last week I was able to sit down and get some painting done. I finished the two my two latest units for Megablitz. Now I just need to work on some terrain and markers and I'll be ready for a game. I also came upon some photograph boxes that will be good for storing my ever growing Megablitz army. They come in two sizes (4"x6" and 5"x7") and can hold about 1 division each. Here are some photos of the new units. Note the glue on some stands is still fresh.

First up we have the Belgium 2nd Infantry Division.

Here we have the infantry battalions for the 5th, 6th, and 28th infantry regiments. I used H&R's WWI french figures for the Belgians.

Now we have the various support units including the 2nd supply battalion, 2nd artillery regiment, division HQ, 12th engineer battalion, recon company, and the AT companies. The AT companies are represented by a T-13 SP gun. Most of the equipment is Scotta, except the gun and limber which is H&R.

Next we have the whole unit together in it's new box. I'm pretty sure if I was to cram them in I could get a second infantry division in there.
 The other unit I finished is the Corps troops for the French Corps de Cavalry.

Here we have the Corps command and combat support elements. This includes the commander (probably ordering someone to wash his car), the 129th Signal battalion, the 329th RAT, and the 129th Genie (engineer) Battalion.

Next we have the combat service support elements. These include the 338 and 339 motorized transport companies, 129th maintenance battalion (with Souma ARV halftrack), and the 29th medical battalion.

Several other units were attached to the Corps de Cavalry from 1st army and V Corps. These are the 54th and 56th BMM (machinegun battalions), and the 3rd GRCA (recon battalion).

Finally we have all the units together in there new box.
As I stated above I now only need to make some terrain features and markers to ready for a game or two. although I'll probably have it all done by the next week; I don't know if I'll be able to play a game before the end of the year. It'll definitely be the first thing I play next year though.


  1. Splendid stuff! I too have Belgians in 6mm. Then there are some in 20mm which I've been meaning to sort out (and paint!) for about 17 years.....

    Thanks. I know what you mean, I think I have 8 or more division worth sitting around unpainted.

    1. To paraphrase Stalin, "one unpainted figure is a tragedy, ten unpainted divisions is a statistic..."
