1st Canadian Parachute Battalion Part III

I've added several units to my battlegroup and it's almost complete. It won't be overly large as I prefer to play smaller, resilient forces. The Canadian paras in Normandy fit that description very well.

A 6-pdr anti-tank gun.

A Vickers machinegun team.

Last but not least, a 3" mortar team.

A group shot of my finished units so far.

More Canadian Paras

One of the platoon's support options: a Vickers MG team on the move. These boys will make another appearance soon only this time with the gun in firing position.

The first of three jeeps and crew that will make up the reconnaissance element of my para battlegroup.

1st Canadian Parachute Battalion

The end of the beginning. The first section is done for my Canadian paras in Normandy. Very nice figs from Battlefield Miniatures to be used in that most excellent game Battlegroup: Overlord. I've got two more sections to go plus a host of support options.
