Making progress on my BEF force for CANCON 2020.
These are my Infantry Support Assets for my BEF platoon.
All these miniatures are 28mm scale, metal figures from Warlord games ( except for a few plastic figures converted to make up the crew served weapons).
|From left to right Medic, Ranking Leader (for special scenarios and Big CoC game) and FO.|
|The FO has no radio and is connected to the Mortar Barrage via a telephone line.|
|FO at the attic window directing the mortar barrage.|
|Medic and Ranking Officer contemplating dinner tonight.|
|ATR team (the long metal barrel of the gun is very fragile and subject to bending so handle with care)|
|Vickers MMG providing support to the platoon.|
|The figure in the middle comes with the 2 pounder gun but I included him with the MMG, the figure on the right is a plastic late war British figure which I converted to make up the crew numbers.|
Rifle team and a Junior Leader in foxholes.
I have yet to finish the foxhole for the Bren, coming soon.
|The base of the foxholes contain a sheet of metal and the underside of the figures have a tiny embedded earth magnet, this helps to remove casualties.|
Follow this link to see how they are constructed: Making foxholes.
|2 pounder on Overwatch guarding the road.|
|I was considering scratch building the Vickers MMG and the 2 pounder but decided I could use the time on other projects combined with a good discount deal at Warlord games I just decided to purchase them.|
|These two figures have also been converted as crew members, the one on the left was a riflemen attaching his bayonet which has been converted to a 2 pounder round and the other one is a plastic figure manipulate to loading the ammo "pose".|
