This is the second battalion of these I've been working on, and should have enough figures to complete an entire regiment. Painted with Vallejo English Uniform, and Citadel washes. Mostly ACTA figures.
Battalion command stand, for CD this represents a group of between five and ten men
Mortar platoon, Matchbox figures with head-swaps
LMG platoon, unfortunately not the same scale as the others, part of several such equipped figures sent to me last year from Ireland
Most figures in this unit had backpacks added for variety
One of the company command platoons, no idea what set the figure on the right comes from, couldn't find any reference to it on PSR. Anyway, it had a SLR so off with its head
A before shot of a platoon which includes a modified figure
A platoon from the fourth line company wearing NBC kit
This is another project that I've got on the go for inclusion in my cold war collection. The figures and a whole swag of other goodies arrived to me from Nate over at http://ndcblog.wordpress.com/, will show the rest of it down the track. Do check out his site, huge variety of gaming material.
Orion figures in highly original and imaginative poses. For CD, this will count as a recon-patrol stand - the addition of dogs in the unit increases spotting ability
The camouflage is not particularly accurate but will do
The light hasn't done me any favours but we haven't seen the sun here for a while now, the joys of living in a rain forest!
The Airfix and ACTA sets are for my cold war British collection. For the 4.5s, I'd like to do two batteries, one each for the First and Second World Wars. Haven't quite finished the Airfix Russians I'm working on as I got sidetracked with another small project, show you soon.
These are about half finished, and I've actually got, more or less, a complete regiment to this stage. This is one company from that unit. The Esci officer had his base removed for a better height match with his Airfix subordinates
Another company from a different battalion. This one has a command machine gun platoon; certainly unusual by WW2 standards. Figure size a consideration still, I went with the Hong Kong copy figure because it was a better height match, crude figure at best!
One of the mortar platoons, bases removed but still larger than anything else. Will see how login and comments go, and hopefully show you a few more bits and pieces from of my recent cold war additions.
