Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

AB Figures BLA12 Platoon Officers

Good day everyone!

Last night I finished painting some additional figures I purchased from AB Figures some time ago.
These were the (BLA12) Platoon Officers, who I intend to use for my Tommies who fight in the hedgerows.
As usual, I painted them with the distinct(?) yellow wyvern of 43rd Wessex Division, inspired by Jacksarge's excellent blog



If you want to see more photos of the terrain pieces who stand in the back of the figures, you could see this post and this post as well.

I hope you like them!

  2. Beautiful figures, beautifully painted!
    They look great against your terrain items too.
    Do you plan for any armoured support for your Wyverns? They most frequently operated with the Sherman IIIs of the 8th Armoured Brigade.

    Keep up the great work mate. :)

    1. Thanks John. Could you please help me a bit, and tell me which models should I use for them?

    2. A good start for the Sherman IIIs would be the Italeri fast-build kit which has two in a box. Only downside is that they come with sandguards, but with clever conversion they could be cut off. I am really hoping that Plastic Soldier Company releases some. You would also need Sherman Firefly.
