I am building up a British army to field in my Battlegroup Overlord games. So far I have 75 airborne troops painted and an additional 35+ Infantry from Revell’s sets Late War British, and ANZAC. I will be supplementing in the future with Plastic Soldier Company’s outstanding Late War British Infantry Set as well as the Zvezda HMG (vickers I believe). I also plan to add some Bren Gun Carriers from PSC, 4 Cromwell Tanks, and a pair of Achilles, along with some medium/heavy mortars from Hat, and tank riders to place into my M5 halftracks. I already have a pair of chruchills, 5 fireflies, shermans galore, and a comet to give the british their own flair. For Arty I made 2 17 pdrs, and have the old standby 1:76 Airfix 6Pdrs and 25Pdrs along with the bren carriers and Morris Quads. So far I think my British are looking pretty dandy if I must say.
Here are some pics of the painted lads. I am thinking of giving them a wash to bring out some of the details. I just purchased two citadel washes (nuln oil (badab black), and Agrax Earthshade (used to be devlan mud)). If anyone has any kind advice on how i can make these troops pop, I am all ears.
