So here's the first squad (plus) of a new army. In this case; men of the Durham Light Infantry in Sicily '1943.
It has to be said though, that they will have a dual purpose as representing New Zealanders in summer dress in the Italian mainland campaign.
The figures are Warlord games plastics; British and Canadian infantry 43-45. But i have kitbashed parts from their 8th army box set, mainly the weapon arms in shirtsleeves. After doing so, the sword bayonets needed to be exchanged for 'pig sticker' bayonets to be correct.
There are also some other parts from various Warlord Games' kits in there...can you spot them?!? Answers on a stamped, self-addressed envelope...;)
Now...where are those British airborne I need to finish...? (there's always British airborne to be finished!!)Stay safe and keep your brushes moving. Regards, Dan.
Thanks John! Glad you like them. I waited some time with baited breath for the new plastic British to come so I could execute the kit bash, but I'm even happier now after getting the feedback- thanks! Incidentally, i love the railway stations youve just done and the how to ..on the railway track from sprues was brilliant! Thnaks again, Dan.
John, you should come on the podcast as a guest at some stage and talk about your MDF buildings method, it would be a treat to chat to terrain building royalty?
