Horse drawn le IG18 and crew

Due to the lack of appropriate tractor or complete team of horses, German troopers often employ a single horse for towing light guns such as le IG18 or Pak 35/36 and this is what I tried to depict. A gun surely requires not only tractor, but also crew and here it is the complete crew of a le IG18 (6 soldiers). The gun is in autumn and is operated by Waffen SS Panzer Grenadiers dressed in smocks painted in autum/winter ribbed edge and oak leaf patterns.
