WW2 Indian Troops
After having removed the bush hat wearing figures from Eric’s 14th Army I decided to sort out the remaining Indian infantry. As was usual with Eric’s collections the variety of figure manufacturers on show was, as ever, plentiful! I have identified the Foundry offering but have no clue as to the others.
These are the smallest figures and are also the only ones wearing trousers rather than shorts. Note the vast array of prone riflemen!
No mistaking these from Foundry although I am unsure about the SMG armed NCO. Eric had converted a couple of prone Bren gunners into Boyes anti-tank riflemen.
This is the biggest batch - both in numbers and size
There are plenty of figures here and Eric had them all organised into units from platoon down to section level. Mine will not be quite so organised as I shall be using the figures on an ad hoc basis or rather scenario specific.
I also came across this fellow.
This is a mystery. He is 20mm hard plastic and is a British infantryman but I have no idea where it is from.
I have a small Battlefront order of some British bits and pieces to finish them off and so all that will remain will be some vehicles, some terrain and of course, painting it all. First of all though, the ACW collection needs some TLC.
