I’ve divided the remaining Candian infantry into four batches of about ten or so figures. I finished up the first of such batches last night.
(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)
These Engineers are from Bolt Action Miniatures. I’m not entirely sure which of the four engineer types would be appropriate for a battalion’s pioneer platoon, or which would be divisional RCE field squadron elements. The fellow with the bolt cutters would be fine for the pioneer platoon. I have a feeling the minesweeper and chap with the demolition detonator thingie would be fine as well. But how about the Flamethrower? I think it’s the only item in my book on the Canadian Army in Northwest Europe that doesn’t list what type of unit it was issued to. I have a feeling it wasn’t an infantry battalion piece of kit…
Conveniently the unit flash of the Royal Canadian Engineers is also red (like the Regina Rifles – the unit that I’m painting the infantry as), it’s just a slightly different shape. So hapofully no on w will complain too much…
The rest of these are a mix of Bolt Action Miniatures, Artizan Designs, and others.
Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:
Something Canadian… Infantry… Shermans… I was briefly tempted to set the Canadians aside and work on Germans – which would be a bit more useful at the moment… but the feeling has passed and I’m pretty much committed to finishing off these Canucks before I move on to the next lot.
