So as promised I'm posting some pictures of some of my Flames of War miniatures. These will be the core of my Moro River campaign Canadians (and British).
This is my troop of Sherman IIIs I plan on using. I'm going to add markings for the 44 RTR once I get the 4AB decals in. As I mentioned earlier, I'm not sure how to do the serials for these figures.
This is my Vickers MG platoon. I've painted them according to the Italy colour guide in the back of the North Africa book. However, from the pictures I've seen 1CID were usually wearing their brown jackets, the khaki shirts weren't exposed. I suppose that's to be expected in a battle fought in December. I'm not proud of the basing job, it was my first attempt at basing 15mm figures. I plan on revisiting it when I base my rifle platoons.
Speaking of which... I've finished painting a couple dozen riflemen. I'm happier with the paint job on these than I am the MG teams. I'm planning on painting up three full platoons worth before I start basing them. Of course, that's taking longer than expected.
