I decided I wanted to do 2 platoons of infantry and 2 platoons of armour for the game. I put in a big order to Army Group North Miniatures to complete several platoons for both Germany and France. I also ordered a platoon of Dragons Portes miniatures from Crusader miniatures/Northstar. I painted these up as Chasseurs Portes, the infantry component of the Cuirassier heavy tank divisions. some of these infantry units had blue pants instead of the typically drab pants of other french infantry formations. they also give a decent counterpart to German schutzen, being similar formations themselves.

I often play this platoon as motorized infantry in Chain of Command, as the platoon structure is identical. They just get a few more support options.
|Left to right, Front to back: MadBob FCM 36, JTFM R-39, |
AGNM AMR-35 ZT3, AGNM AMR ZT1/2, AGNM Char B1 Bis
3x AGNM Somua S35s
|Left to Right, Front to Back: AMR-35 ZT1/2, 3x Hotchkiss 39s,|
Somua S-35, 3x Panhard 178. All AGNM
This army is essentially done. I have 6 AGNM Laffly S-20s(that I 3D Sculpted), but I've yet to paint them up. they will most likely get used as jump off points for my Chasseurs Portes.
Finally, the buildings in the background of all the pictures are Sarissa buildings. I painted them up quickly for the Big CoC game I ran. I still have to weather them properly.
