Durham Light Infantry Platoon



Inspired by my recent trip to Normandy, I decided to do a new platoon for my Normandy collection to go with all the new vehicles my British are getting. Given all the graves we saw, this platoon will be based on the 8th DLI who saw plenty of action during the war.

Set up for Battlgroup Overlord I have the following...

Forward HQ
Comms Relay
Infantry Platoon with PIAT team
Vickers MG Team
Forward Artillery Observer
Sniper
Infantry Foot Patrol
Carrier Section

I've included the carrier section,  as throughout their battalion history, the Carrier Platoon is mentioned over and over again, and seems to have been a highly used asset.

Sorted out all the 20mm WW2 infantry that need painting... figures to go in vehicles and crewing artillery are next to sort out.

So far... it's around 440 figures to do.  :mrgreen:




British and Russian tray... lots to do here!




US Army... with a huge box of vehicle passengers for the dozen half tracks!  !)




Yet more Germans... cos you can never have enough Germans.

Thank you gents, very kind of you to say so.

More greatcoats tonight - SS helmet covers, as all my winter type Germans are themed as Waffen-SS...



Will finish this section up, base them, and then maybe some Russians for a few days?
