First Units of the British Intervention Force Arrive - Pictures Edited
The first units of the British Intervention Force (BIF) have arrived. These were painted by my game co-host Mike M and are just superb. Completed to date are 3, 24 fig Infantry battalions, a high command stand and an officer. In the pipeline are a unit of Lancers, 3 more infantry battalions and some more artillery. All of the miniatures are 28mm metals from the Perry British Intevention Force line. They are wonderful sculpts.
A close up of the infantry. Mike really did a nice job on these. I really like the crisp red iniforms and think they look splendid on the tabletop when marching alongside the confederate greys and union blues.
The command stands. My pictures do not do the High Command stand justice - It's amazingly painted and a real gem.
Lastly a close up of the infantry.
How will these plucky Brtis do against the battle hardened Union forces on the tabletop? You'll need to register for my games at Historicon this year to find out T-340 - F-341 in the HCON PEL.
