Having completed the platoon so early in the year will help with play testing the scenarios which will be prepared for the event .
The figures are metal, except for a couple which are late war Brits converted to early war to make up a short fall in the number of figures.
All the figures are from Warlord games and they have all been well feed with Pot roast lamb and mash potatoes to plump them out into a Heroic pose
They are nice figures to work on, the sculpts are well defined which does help immensely with painting.
|My BEF platoon with a extra section at the ready to be placed in the support list.|
Two Senior Leaders on Hex bases.
The leader on the right, had a modification done to his right arm, his pointed finger was removed and his arm was cut at the elbow and positioned to differentiate him from the Junior Leaders.
|Three of the Four Junior leaders on square bases.|
|Infantry on round bases.|
|One of 3 Prone Bren teams in my Platoon.|
|Standing Bren team, I only manage to secure one.|
By the way if you are wondering what that brownish short sleeve is doing on the middle figures arm, its actually a chemical warfare indicator.
This image shows the figures in bare metal, I added the gun straps to all the figures using Milliput, a little detail which does make a difference to the figures appearance.
|Figures primed black and the start of the painting process is underway, I always start with the flesh bits.|
|My homemade figure holding rack with the painting process underway, I tend to paint 14 figures at a time.|
With the painting complete the addition of tuffs and flock is added to the base. I make my own tuffs follow this link; Static grass applicator
