Good news! I've finished making up my Core Platoon for Bolt Action in 28mm: 25 plastic Tommies plus the 'Command' models in metal (these will be based on washers).
Their construction was a long process, but reassuringly fiddly after years of just chunky GW models, Detailed below are some of the more fiddly tweaks I had to make:
|[above] In this case, note the pickaxe and spade on the 3rd and 4th models. In each case, I had to cut down the soldier's spine, the backpack and the haft in order to make it all squeeze in.|
|[above and below] In this case, please note the added carrying strap for the PIAT ammo and the grasping of the PIAT bomb by the left hand. Tricksy.|
I'll let you know how it goes, eh?
