These eight Legionaries are from Artizan Miniatures and make up another squad for my Vichy French in North Africa. The best thing about this force is that I can take it to an event and if playing an Axis opponent I will just say that they have switched sides and long live Charles De Gaulle!
These guys are also from Artizan and are an amazing, though small, range. The 12 that I have are suitable for use from Africa through Italy and even into France although one of the French officers has US kit on and as such would be rested for the Vichy force. I have included a shot below to show you how these two squads fit into the entire force and you may recognise the armoured car up the back and some other Pulp miniatures I have painted this challenge. All up for this army I have painted 30 of these troops during this challenge.
Blitzkrieg Miniatures make these 1/56 vehicles and they are really fantastic resin kits. I really wanted these for my BEF as I think they are on par with the Matilda II as iconic and I think they sum up nicely the British inter war theory on cavalry type tanks being small and lightly armed. One of the tanks is set up for the desert war so not strictly accurate for BEF however you make do with what you have available.
Team Yankee - Russian vehicles - 124 Points
The Russian horde is made up of five T72's, two Gopher SAM vehicles, three Carnation SP Howitzers and ten BMP 2's. All these miniatures are from Battlefront and are a mixture of resin and mostly plastic kits. Again whilst impressive in number at 15mm and all the same colour they are relatively easy to batch paint.
Thanks for all your great comments so far from my submissions and I am hoping for another big week next week!
Alan and Paul: Blimey Patch - you really went thermonuclear with the paint bomb this week. It is a pleasure seeing such a variety of figures and models, painted to such a magnificent standard. My favourites are definitely the Goumiers. Great, characterful figures, and I love the job you have done on their striped clothing. With all the vehicles and crew figures your total comes to 264 points, but I'm giving you an extra couple of points for the Goumiers.
