Half of my BEF, the other halve is the Warlord Games “Dad’s Army” platoon led by the valiant Captain Mainwaring, complete with Jonesy’s and Hodges’ trucks but.. I have not painted it yet. 🙂
It’s been awhile since I last posted something here on wargamer.be but I have certainly not been idle. In the next 7 days I will post a new “army” every day ; coming up are the 1940 British Expeditionary Force, 1940 French, 1940 Fallschirmjaeger, US Airborne, late war British Infantry and British Paras.
First up are Early War Germans.
Led by their gallant leader, Lord Lovat in his non-regulation uniform (put that man on a charge!), I give you a platoon of British Commando’s. Most are Warlord Games plastic and metal figures but a few are Artizan metal figures.
This was the first time that I applied the water slide decals that come with most Bolt Action sets. They look great once applied and varnished with a coat of matt varnish to take the shine off but they are A PAIN to apply for someone with bad eyes like me.
Not sure what I will work on next. Could be my British infantry or my British Paras if I can find the courage to do more decals. 🙂
Late war Germans to oppose my Russians. Tabletop quality painted by my painters at MMPS and shaded by me on obviously a bad day for painting because I did not do a very good job on the faces. But who cares, I can’t see them properly anyway from 2 meters away on the wargames table so game on!
A couple of the figures are wearing camouflage smocks. I still need to paint those sometime, for now they are just painted Field Grey like the other figs.
Next up are British Commandos.
