From BenitoM - More British Paratroopers Arriving to the Landing Zone (20 points)


A second “stick” dropping on the landing zone. Continuing with my British Airborne platoon project for this year’s Challenge, I add today two more leaders (another "horn blower)  plus a radio operator and a medic.



The four models are 28mm Warlord metals from the British Airborne Command blister.  They have been painted following the steps of the “how-to” guide published in my blog yesterday.

Note that the medic features a Red Cross armband (not clear in the photo), from the very complete decal set included in the British Airborne plastic box, also from Warlord.  


With this entry I bag another 20 points (4 models x 5 points each) in my personal score.
Now on to prepare my first model for the 'What a Tanker!' contest.

Two entries in two days? You're on a roll Benito!

I like the nice crisp lines to your brushwork on these figures, Mr. M, especially the running medic and the leader leaning back blowing his hunting horn. Very dynamic and beautifully painted.

Looking forward to seeing your upcoming armour entry for the 'What a Tanker!' contest.

  12. I do like the camouflage, Benito! The helmet webbing, uniforms and details are all well done. Even the berets look clothlike! Nice job!
