After the last post of the 27th Armoured Brigade, here is the 8th Infantry Brigade from 3rd British Infantry Division, based for Blitzkrieg Commander and ready to land on Sword beach. The figures are Adler and the vehicles are all Heroics and Ros. These were all painted and based several years ago and are, I think, too dark, as I used a black undercoat and didn't lighten the colours enough. These days I prefer a white undercoat as this seems to brighten the colours making them more realistic. Either way, I don't fancy repainting them and they do the job fine. When time/finance allows, I might add another brigade and will paint them up in my preferred style.
On the right is the 1st Batt The South Lancashire Regt, then the 2nd Batt The East Yorkshire Regt and, on the left is the 1st Batt The Suffolk Regt. The Brigade CO is lower left, along with a FAO stand. Top left is the 3rd Division CO along with the Divisional HQ defence company. Along the top right is a company from the 2nd Batt The Middlesex Regt, a heavy MG and mortar battalion.
So, next up will be the supports (artillery & AT) and attached units (1st Special Service Brigade), plus LCAs, LCMs and LCTs. Also need to photograph the attached "funnies" from 79th Armoured Div.
