Continuing with presenting the stuff I finished this past weekend, after making myself sit down to finish the painting, basing, re-painting, and re-basing that needed to be done. I had a bunch of Allies to work on, and was lucky enough to get a bunch of them done. Here we've got Brit 8th Army (100% Pendraken), Brit Early war; despite having some Stens mixed in (mostly Minifigs, but with some Pendraken sprinkled in and a bunch more Pendraken on the way); Brit Airborne 'Red Devils' (100% Pendraken), and some regular old line doggies, AKA US Army Infantry (almost entirely Minfigs).
Here we go:
The wash was a little harsh I think...
One more tribute to my laziness; once I was finished flocking these I realized I had six PIAT teams, each with two helmeted men, and six 2" mortar teams, each with two men wearing berets. Then I noticed, you really could swap out the PIAT loader with the kneeling officer I put on each 2" mortar base, and they wouldn't look out of place. Then I thought, wouldn't it be cool if you had mixed some of those up so they weren't all the same? Well yes, it would have been...
The same officers, from the rear, showing their officer ID stripes. I always thought they were cool and can't help but paint them (and NCO horizontal stripes) on everything.
Okay, I've got one more post to make.
