20mm WW2 Painted British 6pdr Platoon.

The last bits of the Operation Sealion Project are just about done and the British are done, the figures are a mixture of SHQ (not brilliant and horrible flash), Blitz Miniatures (very nice figures) and the guns are from Britannia Miniatures.

The platoon has a couple of trucks for transport (which I forgot to include) and is based for the rules European Battlefield.......now Ray painted these but I based them (is that okay Ray?).

More of these will be coming up over the next few days or so (I hope) including MMG platoon, Mortar platoon, infantry platoon. tanks, trucks and military police.......

The pictures I took are horrible and these were the best.......

  9. Nice paintjob. The SHQ Minis are not always bad. Some are really good, some look horrible in my opinion.

  18. I quite like SHQ figures. However, some of the ranges are in desperate need of new moulds.

    I think your figures turned out nice in the end though.

  26. Another great group of minis. Cameras are such a pain. I used to take great pains taking my pictures and they came out terrible. Now I just don't worry about it and I even occasionally get a good pic. :)

  39. Nice addition to the project. The 6 lber was not the main AT gun but was in limited production and distribution by mid '40. They'll fit.
