Here is my Tank Terror: British Red Devils Paratrooper Piat Team.

I stink at figures but thought I would give it a shot as practice for an upcoming Sherman tank crew I want to build for my next campaign. Sorry for the crummy pic but my camera is 3 years old and has no macro

My base was done in 15 minutes. I sprayed the base OD, spread a mixture of white glue and water, sprinkled several shades of model railroad grass, glued down the rocks, glued the weeds around the rocks and voila! 15 minute base. Of course a few minutes after I post my pics I find Tank Terror has been extended!!!

That's a great build. I really like the PIAT. I had an old PC game, 'Close Combat-Operation Market Garden', where when you played as the Brits, you had PIAT teams. They were pretty good to have against some of the German's Armour. But anyway, good build and thanks for entering a build into the campaign. Yeah I thought maybe some more time might help some people finish some things up they were wanting to enter.

They are 2 out of 4 figures in the Dragon British Red Devil Paratrooper set.
