Following a request from Sun of York (http://onesidedminiaturewargamingdiscourse.blogspot.com/2011/04/50th-northumbrian-infantry-division.html) for photos of a Megablitz British Infantry Division, I dug out 50 Northumbrian Division, as it is the same unit he is building. My version of 50 Div was assembled some years ago and has been used in a number of games. It is fairly typical of my older late war British Infantry Divisions - cheap!
The labelled box file. The label on the right is one of a few I picked up at a museum in Normandy in 2005.
One of the three infantry brigades. Figures by FAA with a good old Airfix Matador.
The infantry brigade in 'travel' mode. This is the best of the Matadors in the division - the only one I didn't have to rebuild from near-scrap.
|All three infantry brigades.|
One of the two (Airfix) field artillery regiments. I know there should be 3, but I find that representing them as two (with added strength points) is enough. And cheaper.
|The AT regiment - FAA gunners with Airfix 6-pdr and Matchbox Morris C8.|
|The RE Detachment and MG Battalion. Airfix Carriers and FAA MMG crew.|
|The recce regiment - Humber armoured cars and Daimler scout car - all by Matchbox.|
|Divisional LOG - AEC Monarch lorry and HQ - Roco Dodge and FAA figure.|
|The division in it's box file. 25 stands by 5 manufacturers.|
