German Reinforcements - GF

With WWPD's Operation Overlord campaign complete, I thought it was time to revisit the German forces in my collection. Without any bombardments in my army, I was feeling a bit left out in all of the games. My troops were constantly under fire from allied mortars and artillery...not to mention all of those planes! The easiest, quickest (and cheapest) solution was to break out some 21cm NW 42 Rocket Launchers I had sitting in the closet. Dave purchased them for me a for Christmas a few years back and I never got around to putting them together. I haven't had a chance to test them out on the table, but I like what I see on their stat line:
Range: 72”/180cm; Anti-tank 3; Firepower 3+

Any ideas on what color the rockets should be?

I also have some mortars to put together at some point, which should help round out my bombardment options.

The Dale Wardens recently put together another FoW order and I decided to take advantage of the discount and ordered a StuG G Platoon (5 tanks). A good German general can never have too many StuG's. I'm still working on camo and have all of the decals to do, but at the moment they should be at a decent enough tabletop standard.
