Some more finished British Infantry for my Northumbrian division. It takes me so long to paint the little fellas, I have to write myself a step by step list to work through slowly. So this group of fifteen good men must have taken me two weeks to finish off.
First off is a group of six from my ever expanding AB figures range. These are my favourite to paint, the detail and sculpting makes it easier at this scale. I particularly like the officer, his sten gun thrown over his shoulder, pulling a pin out of a pineapple grenade. Great stuff. Next up are four guys from CP Models in the UK. Another great figure maker and also nice and clear to paint. One soldier is carrying a fuel can and another has pinched a panzerfaust from somewhere. I have a few more excellent British from CP which will be in my next painting batch.
The other figures are from SHQ Miniatures and a company i can’t remember the name of. SHQ are a bit smaller, but still fit fine with everyone else. Their faces are brilliant, but the rest of the figure does not quite match AB and CP. Still nice figures and good for padding out your platoons with some other poses. The figure that I cannot remember where i got him from does not measure up to the others standards. So you don’t need to worry about that then!
If you are looking for metal figures in 1/72 scale then AB Figures (i get mine from Eureka Miniatures in Melbourne) and CP models in the UK, are the best for you!

Very nice Will! They’ve come out well and all seem to complement each other nicely! I reckon on finishing a single metal 20mm figure in two days (which is about an hour a day or near enough) which includes cleaning, priming, painting and basing, so I think you’re doing well! Agree with you completely about CP figures!

It feels like I paint at a snails pace John! I have 40 more brits all based and primed. Plus another 20 in the queue. That should just about do it! Will give me a company (10 x 3 x 3)
Cracking work- you can’t go wrong with CP and AB for Brits either imo.

Thanks Pete. Yes I am aiming to have all my Brits purely AB and some CP. Then the plastic stuff will get the heave ho.
