Ben here with a painting update, this time for my 101st Airborne Market Garden army.
For the HQ, I decided to use the Easy Company heroes as the command models for a few reasons. Firstly they are very nice models, secondly it means I can do Easy Company from Normandy to the Bugle and finally there is only 2 US Para command models, the blister adds in quite a few more models to the mix. To make the commands different from my Bulge army and to keep it historicalish everyone got a downgrade. So Winter's has become the Company Commander instead of a Higher Command model, Lipton will be a Platoon Commander, etc.
|My Company Commander, Winters himself|
|Nixon seemed a good choice as the 2IC|
|I have done Spiers as a Platoon Commander, I know he wasn't part of Easy Company until the later part of the Bugle,|
but the model was to cool not to have in the army! He will replace the commander stand I did for the first platoon.
|Robert Redford I mean Major Cook.... I know he's not part of the 101st Airborne, but it gives me a few different options with the army if we ever get a Firestorm Market Garden campaign going.|
Anyway I hope you enjoyed this post and until next time thanks for reading
