Para Support Platoons

Found a little time during the week to finish the support units for my first re-worked para battalion. Based for CD3, most figures have had at least a head-swap. Over the summer holidays I plan to finish two more battalions plus a few extras to complete the regiment

Recon SMG and battalion HQ stands

Ammo porter platoon

Support company command stand. For some reason the red I used for their berets turned out a bit brighter than the last lot, so I might try and dull them down a bit at a later date

3" mortar platoon, back

And, front.

PIAT platoon

The full support company: HQ, mortar, MMG, Engineer and PIAT stands. The entire battalion includes figures from Esci, Revell, Airfix, HaT and a couple of Hong Kong copies.


  1. By jingos they are good. They cam as come along way since those early stands.

    Well done.

  2. I see what you mean about the red, but it looks the part. Nicely done.

  3. I like the company you keep, LOL well done!

  4. Thanks boys. Quite enjoyed doing these... don't tell anyone:)

  5. These look fantastic! Great mix of figures too. So are you planning an Arnhem campaign?

  6. The red doesn't look bad to me at all -- they look great.

  7. Cheers lads.

    Uncle B, thanks mate, nah not doing Arnhem anytime soon. We tried it a while ago and vowed and declared that if we ever had another crack at it, we'd wait until we had all the right gear, especially in terms of scenery

  8. Nice conversions and painting Al!

  9. Some great conversions and the camo is spot on mate.

    Cheers Rich.
