This is the 25th Battalion (Nova Scotia Rifles), CEF. Like the other two battalions I’ve finised for the 5th Canadian Infantry Brigade (22e Battalion (Canadien Français) and 24th Battalion (Victoria Rifles), CEF ) the miniatures are from Gripping Beast/Woodbine Design

25th Battalion (Nova Scotia Rifles), CEF
The formation patch for the 25th Battalion was a red triangle surmounting a blue patch – the blue patch was for the 2nd Division, the triangle indicated the third battalion within the brigade and the red indicated the second brigade within the division.
I’ve been laid low with a nasty cold the last few days. These miniatures were actually finished on the weekend, I just never got a chance to nip outside during the few daylight hours we have at this time of year to take a picture.
Unfortunately sunny and clear at this time of year usually means REALLY FREAKING COLD! (check out that windchill!)
I have started work on the final battalion for this Brigade - 26th Battalion (New Brunswick) – but despite being home all day long, I’ve mostly been lying around in bed and too tired to keep my eyes open to paint, let alone actually focus on the little buggers… Not really what I needed right now.
Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:
26th Battalion (New Brunswick), CEF
After I finish the 26th Battalion (New Brunswick), I have one more battalion to finish up the 4th Brigade and then need to get some figures for the 6th Brigade and then the British Brigade that was attatched to the Canadian Crops… then it’s on to Germans!! (And terrain!!)
