Armored British Infantry

I managed to finish up my squad of BEF infantry from All Quiet on the Martian Front. I had started three of them back in the fall but sidelined them to work on Painting Challenge entries. Now they and the other seven got their time on the painting table.

I had a debate with myself on how to paint them but finally went with basically the same as my regular infantry with the addition of grey/white for the helmets and breastplate. That way they will fit in in with the rest of my British ( all 6 of them HaHa) but still stand out on the battlefield from them.

My favorite out of this group is the Coil Gunner. I wish all of them had the same look. There is just something about the heavy armor, and the massive gun and backpack that just really speaks to me. I might try to make more of my own version of these troops based on his design.

For my purposes they are guys are going to be the specialist troops for the British Empire tasked to fight the various weird occurrences happening both at home and around the globe.

The squad getting down to work!


  1. These are really cool Brian - love them!

  2. Nicely done! Though it reminds me that I have lots to paint for AQotMF as well.

    1. Thanks, I feel your pain there. I still have almost all of my pledge sitting in a box waiting to get worked on.

  3. Hey Brian:
    I missed these guys on the Challenge Blog but I'm really glad to be seeing them now. They look terrific. I really like the blue you've chosen for the face mask, it adds just the right hint of SF. I'm reality enjoying your Martian Front entries.

  4. Thank you Padre! The All Quiet stuff is fun to paint, I hope to actually try the game out at some point.
