20mm British paratrooper vignettes

I dashed these off quickly over the weekend to clear out the last of my unpainted paratroopers.

There are a pair of surrendering paratrooper stands and a supply stand of drop cannisters being collected and opened.

The drop cannisters - not sure whether to go with green or white for the cannister colour - in the end I went with Russian uniform green.

Surrendering group, the wounded guy showing his captors he can still draw a longbow.

For some reason, I must have bought two sets of these at different shows, so painted the extra set up anyway.

If I'm playing against a British paratrooper player, I can pop these on the table when he fails a morale test and there are no friendly infantry within 10 inches.

Fun to paint and quite quick as I've got the technique worked out and without webbing and weapons, these guys were a doddle.

Thanks for looking.

    1. Thanks Richard. I think he's based on an actual photo taken of prisoners taken at Arnhem. Doubt Jerry would have been too pleased.
