I don't claim to be an expert on WWII Germans (Soviets are more my style), but I would think these figures would be suitable for "cold weather" gaming throughout WWII. Is that a safe guess?

Nice showcase. Antonio painted some Brits for me not too long ago and I'm very pleased with his work. Nothing like some winter-garbed Germans for the winter.

I added a little snow. It represents early fall or late spring. It could snow more later or it won't snow much any more. Some are in snow parkas, ready for the snow others in long coats.

It could be the first snow in fall or a warm day in Winter in which the snow melted. It could be the last snow of spring. It all depends on how you cover the table. These won't work for summer though. :)

They look like they could work for cold weather throughout the entire war.

The headgear ("Einheitsmütze") technically would put them from about 1943 on. An exception would be the the predecessor cap ("Bergmütze") worn by mountain troops throughout the war. Paint the caps camouflage and they can work from 1941 on.

For a quick reference:
