Well, my fellow co-bloggers might have blinded you with their immense speed and I might be coming across like a massive slacker, but – fear not! – I am still painting… when life permits it.
This time I would like to show you my second section of my Brits. These fellas are all sporting the nice backpacks offered by the Perries to help distinguish them from the others. I obviously couldn’t resist the trend and as our own Sire (and Captain Blood of LAF fame) I decided to “sculpt” a beret for one of my troopers. Obviously this guy is pretty full of himself and bit of a show-off, always pointing at stuff and shouting. Takes all kinds.
One of the Bren team has decided to also grab a mattock pick, presumably to prepare a defensive position. Above you can see the traditional cheesy version of the picture below.
Furthermore, here is the Bren base for the first section presented a few weeks ago. It’s pretty straight-forward, but I like how they’ve come along and the little backpacks done by the Perry brothers really do look gorgeous.
Right, here for the Darmstadt-Mannheim connection the RCW weekend is coming nearer and nearer (feel free to visit our relevant blog here). So for the next couple of weeks I will try to paint some more Russians (between work travels – ungh!) so probably a Lewis gunner, maybe a Commissar or whatever else and finish some terrain pieces like some more Pegasus wooden houses and perhaps a couple trees. As soon as that’s done, it will be time to finish the 3rd section and start on the Bren Carrier I’ve purchased.
See you soon!
