In a previous post I wrote about the German force I’ve been putting together for the Battle of France in 1940. Well here are some of the British who will be going to fight them.
As is usual for all my WWII forces the core of the force is provided by nine units of three stands of infantry plus command stands and support. In this case I have finished the infantry, three HMGs, two Hotchkiss AT guns and four tanks. Figures are from Pendraken, Minifigs and Pithead.
Infantry (Pendraken BR141 & BR147 BEF riflemen, BR153 Early War Bren, BR 142 officers)
Infantry odds and sods: 2” mortar, command stand at AT Rifle (Pendraken BR144 Boyes AT Gun, BR54 2” mortar, BR 142 officers and BR18 radio operators.
AT Gun crew and tow (Pendraken BR148 BEF Hotchkiss 25mm AT gun with crew, Pithead Bv64
Light dragon Mk2)
HMG section with 15cwt truck ( Pendraken BR4 Vickers MG Team, Pithead Bv50 Early war 15cwt platoon truck) Pithead do three different truck bodies and two different tilts for this code.
Tanks: A10 (Centre) and two A13s all from Minifigs courtesy of a TMP Poll prize draw win. (Minifigs BV-37 A-10 Cruiser, BV-13 A-13 Cruiser)
