Just a handful more Germans, using the Airfix Afrika Korps as late war infantry. I tried a few basic head swaps (as suggested by Leif, thanks!), which add a nice bit of variety.
Also completed the MG34 gunner. No loader/assistant gunner, but still a favourite figure from Airfix.
I'll finish the basing shortly.
And now, just for Greg (because he asked), here are some more shots of the Italeri US Airborne Mortar.
I'd love to see what whoever sculpted these would do with a full range of airborne. There's lots of great detail on these, with the amount of kit they're carrying (carbines, pistols, packs, entrenching tools etc) and the gloves that seem to have been quite common. In fact if you look carefully at the guy with the mortar round in the second to last photo, you can see that they've even sculpted on the gas testing patch worn on the upper right arm! The needs of the mould occasionally let them down thought, particularly on the boots and the carbines, which are located where it's tricky to get much detail into them.
