I know I was expecting Spanish Civil War as well.. OK so what went wrong. Well as I was putting away my Camels from the Arab revolt game I found some British soldiers from my Afghanistan game a few years ago that were un painted. This little selection is from Brittania now run by Grubby Tanks LINK.
These were given to me when I placed the order a small gift from Andy Grubb for my purchase. So I got side tracked and managed to paint them up this morning.
These troops are 20mm and nicely proportioned. While I had no use for a mortar and crew at that stage (or indeed now) as they were free and I needed the room for my camels it would have been rude not to have painted them up.
Obviously this is a three man team with an 81mm mortar. As it is hot work crewing a mortar all the figures are in light kit and ready to drop all kinds of brown smelly stuff on the enemy. There is an officer with a map and two other men in the crew so I would expect a great rate of fire from this weapon.
As I look on this as a finished project now there really is not much else to say just that they round out the troops I already have.
When I found these troops I found 12 more troops for the SCW tucked away somewhere safe which is why I have delayed doing those just yet as I now have some extras to do. After those I only have officers and flag bearers to go so expect them finished very soon. Mid week I would expect.
Hopefully more on Monday. Until then take care and make sure the paint does not dry too fast in the sun. All the best Clint
