1st Corps Figures - British Paras

I'd like to draw your attention to this lovely range of figures from 1st Corps. (Please note that the superb brushwork shown here is *not* mine!)

Typically, I'd already bought the bulk of my Paras from Artizan by the time I saw these, however there are still a number of items that I "need", e.g. a mortar, a jeep or two, some specialists, an AT gun, etc. Here's a few more pics to hopefully pique your interest.

I've recently bought the Vickers MMG, the parachute cannisters and a few extra paras. The figures are crisply cast and mould lines are practically non-existent. Delivery was speedy too! The regular Para figures are 8 for £8 so they're also great value.

I'll be using the cannister set as Chain of Command Jump Off Points. So if you're in the market for some British Paras then I'd heartily recommend these. Happy gaming!

PS - As you've probably noticed I've reverted the template back to one of the slightly 'darker' styles. I just couldn't get used to the 'white' layout!

Fantastic painting! Love the parachute the most as it's quite an unusual piece for the gaming table.

Just to be doubly clear, as I said at the start, it's not my painting (alas!). It certainly is very good. I'll have to ask who does their brushwork.

Nice Jump of points, also like the parachute,the dark layout is better to show off your pictures.
thanks for sharing John
