The previous British were all Platoon 20, to that I can easily testify as I can remember buying them. However in my unpainted "silver legions" collection I found these WWII Brits, a curious set of seven unidentified figures (see below) which I think fit nicely into the Platoon 20 range, adding a bit of pose variety.
I "think" I picked them up ages ago when I bought a bargain lot from a now defunct model shop in Edinburgh called Mac's Models, which used be on the prestigious Royal Mile leading up to Edinburgh Castle. Does anyone recognise them and can they name the manufacturer (at a guess I was thinking perhaps Drew's Militia, but my feeble Googling has not found a positive photo match)?
Brit late-war (Cross-Fire) Infantry Company Project Status: This leaves me now wanting a HMG and a deployed 2" Mortar team. (Note: I have a few chaps carrying a 2" mortar tube, for me these are good enough to use as normal foot soldiers, as is the Bren gunner, I really want a depolyed crew for visual effect.)
Time to get the order form out :)
Stop Press: Order en route from East Riding Miniatures: A Vickers HMG, a 2" Mortar, a 3" Mortar and a pack of advancing rifleman (ordered and dispatched the same day). Tony from ERM also assured me the metal now used is of a much superior mix and is not brittle.
