Punjabi rifle company

Punjabi rifle company

A representative unit for use in our Syria/Lebanon games

A mix or Tumbling Dice and SHQ figures some with minor conversions, I`ve created a reinforced company unit based around 10-figure platoons, but added a support platoon and Company HQ as a command element.

Tumbling Dice riflemen (there are 3 packs of these)

Good stuff. Do wish the manufactures would make their BREN gunners in the correct drill position though. Should have sling over right shoulder, right hand on hand grip, and left hand on the carrying handle, which is in the extended position to the left, or one handed with the right hand on the carrying handle. Any other way is to risk sever burns...
Any thing bigger than 6 is TOO BIG

Good photos, Richard, showing lovely mix of figures and your lovely paintwork and head swops. Do you drill or glue on your new heads?

Just glue, no patience to mess about with drills and stuff :)
