Yesterday l finished the first lot of Britains etc for my interwar project. I based them very plainly on circular bases as l felt that these non square bases better represented the loose formations of the period.
I maintained the broken weaponry of these figures but will get some new arms for others. I mixed ww1 looking figures with ww2 ones.
The ones nearest the camera are dismounted cavalry. I have some steel helmeted mounted troops coming.
The chap with the binoculars was a broken machine gunner who l added two plastic tubes to his broken hands. The broken standing firing figure had a thin nail inserted up his leg to help him stand.
The command group in the garden ( Britains hedging and wall from my childhood) stand in front of a house painted last year on the outside of a breakfast biscuit box. They are watching proceedings carefully before popping indoors for a cuppa.
All in all I am pleased with how this lot have turned out. Next step with the project is to get some replacement heads and arms , await for the new arrivals to mend and to try and bid successfully for Dinky tanks on eBay within a reasonable budget.
