I started my Forgotten 14th project tonight, painting up section of Chindits (including a LMG) and a 2" mortar. I decided to mount both the bren gun and 2" mortar of the 45mm wide square bases that I have lying round from the Perry ACW figures mainly for quick recognition on the table top- easier for my tired old brain to do it that way than figure out how any men are left when firing the rest of the section (one of the men in the section acts as the LMG loader in BA). I'm not going to get into the points of LMGs in Bolt Action arguments except to say they were a section level support weapon so shall be included in my forces. We will see how they fare in the game but we may end up adding an extra die when firing as seems to be a popular house rule with them.
the figures are Warlord Games.The figures uniform is a base of Vallejo
Gunship Green and the highlight is Uniform Green. It appears a bit
bright in these shots but looks a lot less harsh to the (my) natural
eye. I'll see how it looks in daylight tomorrow and if it looks to
bright then will touch up the highlights an dull them down a bit.
