Let's Hear It For The Boys!

One of the annoying things about playing the 'Went The Day Well?' rules is how difficult it is to deal with armoured vehicles - for example HMG fire is useless against armoured cars, let alone the thinly armoured tanks of the period.

Time then to give some anti tank capability to some of my factions in the form of a Boys anti tank rifle team.

First off the BUF, built from the Perry Miniatures plastic 8th Army sprue I obtained for my Blackshort artillery.

Secondly the Anglican League - the Boys rifle team from Musketeer Miniatures, bought second hand.

Finally the Welsh Nationalists - again bought second hand and I am not sure of the manufacturer (possibly BEF / Warlord?). The kneeling figure has had a head swap, while the prone figure has had his helmet filed into a rough oval shape and had a Greenstuff crest added to make it look more like an Adrian helmet.

  1. Very smart! I intend to get some Boyes teams for my next VBCW purchase. Then we'll show those pesky armoured cars what's what...
