I have completed my Brit Para Company! Wohoo!!
They are painted and based. I do need to dullcoat the stands and I will probably have to use some pigment / powders on the bases. For one platoon, I used the King & Kerr Urban Bases. On the other two, I used the Battlefront Rubble Bases.
I do like the bases. My only problem is filling the cracks. I am not talented enough to mold green stuff in there, so I used model railroad ballast to simulate rubble. It looks ok, but I will need to do something to improve them. Unfortunately, it really does cover up the work I did on the bases themselves.
When I put the whole company together, I admit I had the thougth of "that's all!??!?! All that work and that is it!!!" Each platoon is 7 stands, plus CiC and 2iC and three PIATS. 26 stands. Lot's of work for 26 stands.
I did start the early work on the para HMGs. I also bought (on sale) 6 pdr AT guns. I am going to "steal" the crew from my 17 pdr and use those instead of painting more. I need to 6 pdr for the tournament and I can always paint the other crew and use on the 17 pdrs.
So that means I will only have to borrow Joe's 25 pdr arty for the tournament.
I will try to get some pictures taken and loaded up. But right now I owe my lovely wife whatever she wants because she really let me paint and base this weekend to get them done. Love you honey!! (she never reads this, but I will thank her anyway!!)
