1940 BEF

Having just added to my Early War Germans I felt it was about time to add a little to their opponents. Some of you might remember earlier efforts of mine (has it really been 4 years again?)  on much the same figures. Believe it or not it took me the best part of a month to get these fellas done and dusted. I blame a rather busy schedule with me being away from home for the most part of that time.


It felt interesting to try to match the new paint jobs to the older ones and despite not using Army Painter anymore I think I've come reasonably close. Not that it'd matter on the table anyway but I'm a little OCD with such things it seems. Of course now I have to re-base all of my existing collection as well.






Not much else to be said about these figures other than that they're by Warlord Games and while a little on the chunky side they paint up rather nicely.

  1. These are glorious! Your painting skills have increased a lot over the years! I also like the chunkiness and the comicky style of these, I feel it is more fun to paint such miniatures! Very nice to see this eraly war project grow!
    Do you plan on doing French as well?

  6. Superbly painting as always. I looked at some of the Warlord figures and they look nice, particularly with all of the extra bits - like the various head/helmet choices.
