BKC Aegean Italians [17]

After a long wait, the Pendraken FT17's arrived in the post yesterday, ready to be converted into Fiat 3000's. I ordered four so that I can play around with one to work out what to do, before I tackle the other three that I need for the battlegroup. They're really nice little models and I don't think it'll be too difficult to make them look at least a bit like the Fiat's, although the twin machine gun barrels might be a bit of a challenge.

I've also completed the rest of the CO and HQ bases for the battlegroup that I forgot to do when I assembled the various battalions. I had a bit of a struggle finding enough figures to fill up the bases but I think they came out OK in the end. I'm particularly pleased with the coastal defence battalion CO base, complete with a staff car that's having a puncture repaired by an unfortunate squaddie.

  1. Co-0incidentally I've taken ownership of a load of 6mm versions if these - but I'll be painting them in French colours.
