Hungarian Assault Pioneer Platoon – Utász

FoW: Hungarian Assault Pioneers converted and painted by Tankred

In our Club we are going to start an Mid War FoW Campaign very soon. In order to have some valid thread to russian Tanks I painted one Platoon of Hungarian Assault Pioneers, called Utász in hungarian. I was a little bit unlucky with the decision of converting some models, since Battlefront did a platoon with modeled pioneers, too.

However now I have my very own version, which is pretty much similar to the version of Battlefront. I decided to show the Pioneers by adding german mines, barbed wire and some craters. I modeled the mines with grey stuff and made a tiny mold of it. There are two versions of the mines, a bare mine and one in a wooden carriage box. I used the box to convert the pioneer truck.

Painting was this time a little bit quicker but more precise than I did with the first infantry platoon. Currently I think the amount of work should be chosen carefully. There are a lot of 15mm based miniature painters, who are very specialised and paint an incredible quality. Chevalier de la Terre had an excellent Blogpost on inspiring FoW painters: http://cracdeschevaliers.blogspot.com/2011/04/sources-of-inspiration.html, but I must admit, that personally I paint FoW miniatures less intensive, since there are too many other miniatures to have a detailed painter eye on it e.g. 28mm.

  1. wie immer sind die Lastwagen das Schönste. Ich mag die Botond-Umbauten (?) ohne Verdeck, die trockenen/staubigen Bases und die Posen der schleppenden Pioniere.
