PSC British Infantry

Quick jobs (for me....), gaming standard really, but good enough. Based in pairs and singles for Battlegroup: 3x 10-man Rifle Sections, 5-man Command element, plus a pair each with the 2" Mortar and PIAT.

Later, I added some single commanders to act as leaders in Chain of Command: three Corporals, a platoon Sergeant and platoon Lieutenant. BF plastics this time as PSC does not give you nearly enough NCOs. On the whole, the BF Plastic British are a bit better than the PSC offering and, with extra NCOs, 2" Mortars, PIATs and a few spare riflemen and Brens, enough to add some useful support teams (e.g. the Universal Carrier dismounts), the BF box is the better buy IMO.



  1. Happy New Year! Lovely job still - lovely tones to your highlighting, very natural and not too sharp. All the best for 2018!

  2. These are stunning! Figures are great and the basing is excellent.

    Sorry to necro this thread, but would you be willing to share the paint recipe you used for the uniforms and webgear? I'm also interested in the recipes you used on the plastic U.S. infantry from a couple years ago. TIA!

  3. These were speed-paint techniques: block in basic colours, solid, but lighter versions; then do edge highlights, then apply Army Painter Dark Tone (the tin, not the acrylic wash) - by brush, do not "dip". It takes some practice to move the wash properly and get decent results.

    Uniform was Panzer Aces 317 British Tankcrew, with Panzer Aces 321 Highlight British Tankcrew added for highlights (about 1:1 I think). Webbing was Panzer Aces 318 US Tankcrew, with white added for edge highlights. The wash will darken the colours and provide the shadow details.


    1. Wonderful, thank you for sharing! Wouldn't have guessed you used a wash on these, excellent job!
