Hungarian tank platoon. Vehicles from Mad Bob Miniatures, Hungarian infantry from Outpost Wargames:

Consists of (all regular):
3x Toldi IIa including command tank.
Nimrod flak tank
Csaba armoured car
2x 6 man squads with LMG
1x 6 man squad with LMG and NCO with SMG.
Medium mortar
Medium machine gun
2xBotond trucks.

Bit light on infantry as i couldn't resist including all the fun vehicles, but ultimately I may drop the Csaba and MMG team and add another truck and beef up the infantry squads.

:D Thanks for posting! Looks like a fun army (and super similar to my Italian armored platoon I am building) that has some glaring weaknesses, which make for a more interesting game!

The big problem I see is the infantry units being very small, and the heaviest AT gun being a light AT gun, albeit there are three of them.

The Csaba is probably not contributing much to this army, so dropping that and one support weapon team, (MMG) adding a third truck and beefing the infantry units up to 9 men squads probably makes sense as at least the infantry can hold an objective, or take it if the defenders have been softened up a bit first. The lack of tank killing power, plus the fact that the tanks are pretty poor against infantry (1 MMG) makes for a fairly tricky force to play. It's a lot of armour for a 1000pt platoon though!

Nice looking stuff. I especially like the camo on the tanks and the basing.

Added a pak38 AT gun and artillery tow. The tow can stand in for a truck if I need a third one! (I'm sure in the confusion of the front and given the shortage of motor vehicles this happened!)
