Similarly to the amazing Black Tree Design FJ which Flor gifted me for my birthday (scroll down on the blog a bit) I received some Red Devils as well. I’m going to be blunt: the new FJ models were great to paint and will see their use in my army, but these here Brits are an absolutely essential addition to my Red Devils. So thanks again, matey!
First up, here are four of the more belligerent-looking chaps. The guy on the left will probably join my force as a regular SMG trooper, to his right there’s a sergeant-like type, the prone one as well, and the one on the right will probably become an officer. Nice touch with the pipe!
Then the fun part: the observers! These are the truly useful additions – in Bolt Action (most) British armies receive a free artillery observer on top of the one you can pay the points for – and I’m going to go with two. All four of these can be readily used for observers, or for spotters for my mortars and howitzers. Check the leftmost fellow sitting on a tree stump – the essence of the unperturbable British officer stock!
That’s it for today – I’m working on a couple of things in one go but it’s all fairly rudimentary, so no more updates for a good week or so. Tally ho!
