Slightly lagging behind but still in time for the release of dedicated CoC lists for the Desert War (when, oh when?) I’m hereby completing my platoon of British infantry. Halloo!
Third section, led by Corporal Adams, is obviously providing suppressive fire while the rest of the platoon advances. Therefore the LMG team has taken cover behind a collapsed wall – although they are still discussing the whys and wherefores of bricks as gun supports: “Looks brittle? Ballocks!”
At this point I was left with a single prone model and no clue what to use him for. The leaflet included in the box recommended a “runner” to complement the command team but a prone figure is probably not the best representation of that. So I decided to build a small vignette to be used as an objective marker: the pose looked right for a wounded character (note the dropped messenger bag) who has made it into cover and now’s awaiting relief. (Actually, he would’ve found better use as an assistant gunner on the ATR, but that’s hindsight…)
