20mm WW2 British Machine Gun Platoon

A 20mm British MG platoon for keeping the Germans off the beaches or the high street during the invasion, the 3 figure command section are from SHQ but the machine guns are from Blitz Miniatures, the table is nearly done for a game as well.....

Pictures are the usual dubious quality.....

  1. I'm getting really getting exited about this project!
    The figures look very nice, but I wonder why you're not using static grass for the bases? Would blend much better with the table... ;)

    Cheers, Mojo

  2. Well, they look nice. About the pictures' quality: have you tried enhancing them a bit with a software?

  3. I'm kind of glad they never were needed in the high streets, or at least I don't think they were.

  4. Once again, lovely work. Those HMGs look soooo much better than the old Esci plastics I'm using!

    As always excellent work!

  9. I clicked on the pictures and can see the detail much better. These diorama's look good when put on the table with individual figures. Keep painting, big guy, keep painting.

  11. @Mojo: A decision that haunts me....
    @sebastosfig: I do try and then give up....
    @Tonkow: You're probably right but it's like a one size/style fits all.....

  23. Very nice. I see you've been lurking around the paint table again, and your hanging-about is producing finely fitted soldiers.
