Been looking at more information about Stalingrad. As I said ill be looking at the 369th Croatian reinforced Infantry Regiment. During the battles outside and inside Stalingrad they were attat hed to the 100th Jager Division. The 369th was spread out within the Divisional units so never got to fight as a unified unit. The unit fought to capture the Red October Steel works and also the Mamayev Hill.

Sat reading the Pendraken Forum. One post caught my eye about the 80th Anniversary about some Naval Battles fought in 1942 in the Far East. This got me thinking (not really into Naval Battles) but I know there was plenty of fighting in 1942 especialy on the eastern Front. So a quick delve into the books and lo and behold Operation Case Blue took up most of the fighting from June 28th 1942 to November 24th 1942. So time to get the books out and start watching a few films. One unit that has already piqued my interest is the 369 Croatian Reinforced Infantry Regiment. This unit was attached to the 100th Jager Division during Stalingrad fighting at the Red October Factory and the Mamayev Hill. Ill post some pictures later.

I painted these up Christmas Day but didnt post Some 20mm Iraqi Republican Guard Infantry.
found these figures while tidying up some boxes I brought back from UK. didnt realise what I had so after an hours searching various sites went onto Pendrakens and they were there! i must admit i dont remember buying them. But a quick paint job and basing (need to put some flock and tufts) on them then theyre finished.
