Any uniform purists please look away now......
I wanted an early and late war British platoon but I have used the same figures for both, just changing command and support figures over where needed due to upgraded weapons. So the majority of figures have a mixture of early and late war uniform and not historically correct I guess but then I am getting two for the price of one.
The figures are a mixture of Warlord Games from their plastic box set and their metal B.E.F. figures. There is also quite a few metal figures from Wargames Foundry.
Again, the vehicles are all from Warlord Games.
So, I will start off with pictures of the 'Late War Platoon' and supports. Armour in the background.
Sections One to Three.
Additional Piat and Mortar Team.
Vickers MMG on tripod, FOO and Sniper Team.
Another picture of the sniper.
Recce Section of two Universal Carriers
Ranking Leader with his Dingo. The foot figure was the free figure given out on entering Salute this year.
On the left, Early War Junior Leaders with their rifles.
On the right, Late War Junior Leaders with their SMG's.
Senior Leaders. Early War on the left and Late War on the right.
Early War Boys AT Rifle and Late War Piat.
Early and Late War Mortar.
Foundry Dad's Army figures and Mr Godfrey my platoon medic.
I chopped the hat off Private Pike and given him a Warlord plastic helmet. I have also promoted him, his mum will be pleased.
Early War Platoon with Supports.
Swapped one of the Bren Guns for a Lewis Gun.
Sniper with added telescopic sights, Medic and casualties.
Recce Section with Bren and Boys AT Rifle.
Ranking Leader with Dingo and unpainted 2 pounder AT Gun.
Armour Support. Matilda Mk II and a Mk VI.
A few action shots, Early War.
For those that might be interested, I have written a scenario based on the attack on Hill 112 and played this out using the Chain of Command rules with a few amendments for the scenario.
