I put these guys together from my bits box with the intention of padding out my Dwarf army and to also have a more colorful unit to act as an Ally to my over the top bright Kingdoms of Man army for Kings of War. They are all from GW and are just fantastic miniatures.
I decided to make them look like veteran greybeards, something to inspire fear like that saying about being careful of those with grey beards in an industry where men (or Dwarves) die young. They are also one of the first multi based units I have done and include the full 20 troops that make up a regiment.
BEF Medium Mortar - Warlord Games
A few weeks ago now I painted up two Universal Carriers and now I am adding a medium Mortar team to the mix for Bolt Action. Mortars are a must have in every army I take and the BEF are no exception.
Long Range Desert Group - Battlefront
I was given these miniatures recently by a friend who had too many and knew that I was interested in the LRDG. I had painted a 1/56 patrol up (which recently donated to a charity raffle) and as such he gifted me these and more so I got stuck in with relish. I am in such awe of these gentleman and love bringing these miniatures to life.
So that's it for this week, next week should see a bunch more Team Yankee with a horde of Russians crowding the painting desk.
By Paul and Alan: Wow! Another stunning submission Patch, yet you still classify this as a "light week"! :-)
The Dwarves are great, I love the dioramic basing for the mortar but the LRDG vehicles take the cake (especially after seeing your lovely 28mm ones last week). Looking forward to seeing what you do in a "productive week!".
