Personalisation in Wargames- the Homeguard Platoon

Decided to customise/ personalise my Homeguard Platoon today. Here they are on parade-
Now for a closer look at the characters, from left to right...
Youngest platoon member ( - 1 in shooting, hand to hand and morale) the platoon medic ( +1 to saving throw for any figure if base to base contact with medic) Platoon Officer ( + 1 to morale, 50% chance of indecision when giving orders) Platoon 2ic the sergeant ( +1 to morale and on dice Officer throws to give orders if in base contact with him) and finally the the old soldier ( +1 in hand to hand combat)
I added a paper bayonet to the old soldier’s rifle and a paper scarf to the youngest member of the Platoon. Figures are all 54mm homecasts (bought) apart from the Officer who is a Britains hollowcast with spares rifle arm.

  1. A lovely idea! Your slight modifications to the appearance of your men enhance the idea that these have become personalized and more like discrete individuals. Cracking good work sir!

  4. Do you think that's wise?

    Which one is the dour Scottish undertaker ("we're all doomed! The man's mad ...")?
