I'm one step closer to playing a Big Board Portable Wargame using the rules found at:
I have completed the painting and basing of my late war British troops and I hope to move onto the German opponents soon.
This is my representation of a section which in real life should be about 10 men so the 5 figures here are roughly at a 1:2 scale.
Here are three sections together with an HQ section. Three sections make up a platoon in the British army.
There are also various support weapons available to the platoon. Mortars are just one.
6 pdr Anti-Tank guns are another.
You can never have too many Vickers machine guns.
The PIAT is not as handy as a Bazooka but they had them anyway!
The Germans greatly feared the British field artillery. These are the famous 25 pdr's.
Having a few Shermans about is always handy.
Is this another Sherman?
No it's the same one with the turret turned a bit!!
I drilled out the turret base and the hull and superglued in a pair of mini magnets. The turret now revolves freely but doesn't fall off.
Now for the Germans.
