Fair Dinkum! More Wartime British

G'day all,

As you may have gathered by now I am something of a fan of the Wartime Miniatures ranges, particularly their WW2 British - and they are an Australian based operation, which is a bonus for Antipodeans like me :)
I have painted my way through all of the packs in their Mid/Late War British range and thought I would share some more photos of them.


 
Officer, NCO, & Radio Operator


 
 
Wee lads from a Highland Regiment


  

PIAT team, Mine Detector, & Flamethrower

I 've painted leather gloves on the F/T operator as I
figured his hands were in danger of getting scorched

One very minor gripe, but easily fixed with greenstuff, is that the
Mine Detector could do with a counterweight on the end.

The PIAT loader carries lots of extra munitions


Prone Bren team & Rifleman

 
The figure with the Bren Gunner is holding out a Bren ammo clip

Wartime have produced some great figures here, many of which I would consider to be on par with AB stuff. Do yourself a favour and check out the range :)

  4. I do like the paint job and the background is lush and well done too
    I think you have the balance right between the figures popping and been camouflaged. Great work as per usual, I do envy you at the moment been in a cooler place than South Australia. Regards David

      Yeah, I don't envy you the high temperatures you've been having in SA.
