Excellent question. Naturally, the man to develop such a great and cunning plan would be Captain E. Blackadder.
The reasoning behind Blackadder being an anti-hero is because of his very self-centred method of survival, combined with begrudgingly accepting the duty he has been tasked to perform. Although he almost never does the duty, he does manage to pull off the occasional decent gesture. Clearly a man of wit and reason.
(We have two versions, one done by me and the other by Evan.)
Also a Lewis gunner, because he was part of the set.
Quick note: the figures are from Renegade Miniatures which provide outstanding high detail miniatures! Also the last ten Paras from the earlier post!
And from just Evan…
WWII Canadian Commandos. Size: 15mm
The commandos were formed in 1942 under the command of Colonel Robert Fredrick. They were nick named the Devil’s Brigade and initially saw service in the Pacific. In 1945, the unit was disbanded and most of the commandos were sent to the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion, some of the Americans in the unit were sent to the 101st or the 82nd Airborne Division in America, or to the 474th Regimental Combat Team.
The miniatures took a good 24 hours to clean, file/trim, paint, and landscape.
A very cunning plan indeed!
Well done lads, Blackadder is a brilliant antihero guys! Now, do I get both or just one? ;)
Seriously, great work, both of you. The WWI chaps are excellent and I especially liked that you included the details like the shoulder insignia, rank chevrons and red piping on the cap.
The Paras are wonderful as well, with that howitzer and crew being particular standouts.
Finally, bravo to Evan for doing up some of the Devil's Brigade. You couldn't want a more tough-as-nails unit on the tabletop. Made up of both Canadians and Americans they were a very hard act to follow (though we all know that the Canadians were the greater amongst equals in that partnership). ;P
Terrific work Evan.
AND congratulations in attaining your points target for the Challenge. That is no small feat for your first outing. Again, well done.
I look forward to seeing your final entry guys!
