Finally finished my first section of British infantry. Most of the figures are Plastic Soldier Company 1/72 British infantry plus one Italeri figure. The figures are based on washers and painted using Vallejo, Derivan and Humbrol acrylics. They received a coat of acrylic satin varnish followed up with a coat of matt.
This section is meant to represent infantry from 43rd Wessex Div/ 130th Brigade/ 4th Dorsets- if you look carefully you may notice the dark blue with yellow blob divisional patch on their shoulders. The corporal has a sten gun & the l/cpl is rifle armed kneeling next to the brengunner.
I was pleased with the PSC figures apart from the fiddly gluing of the prone bren-gunner. I know some don't like the "no neck" look, but it doesn't worry me- I am however a bit uncertain about the way the straps on the canteen are portrayed, it should look more like a "T" rather than two horizontal straps- no big deal though.
I have started painting some support figures which include Revell, Italeri & PSC figures. I have been thinking of perhaps getting the Ceasar box as well to add even more variety.
I have just finished Delaforce's book on the Wessex Division, a cracking read, although I would have liked more maps and pictures. I am waiting for a copy of "Assault Crossing" which is about the division's crossing of the Seine, to arrive in the post.
Enjoy the pictures, and feel free to comment:
