British Paratroops by Phil T
Last weekend a few of us got together for two days of gaming; playing War & Conquest and Chain of Command – and what a superb weekend of gaming it was! I’m currently sorting out the pictures and words for the blog posts about those games but in the mean time here’s a little treat in the shape of some British paras painted by Top Wargames Table Chum, Phil.
Good aren’t they!? Like me, Phil is building a (British Airborne) force for Chain of Command – although I’m collecting Panzergrenadiers – more in a later post.
The figures are a mix of Foundry and Warlord. Apparently the camo on the uniforms was hand painted by ladies who just ‘splodged’ green and brown dye on to khaki uniforms! So, for true historical authenticity, I believe Phil wears a dress and nylon stockings whilst painting them ... that’s dedication for you!
