The Knuston Pals

In advance of our planned Somme game I have been making lethargic progress with some toys and terrain.  These chaps  - there are 20 of them but not all made it into the photos - form that famous unit 1st Battalion, South Midland Regiment, better known as 'The Knuston Pals'.
These are Armies in Plastic figures painted to my usual 'toy soldier' style.  I have a second battalion still to paint.

Good stuff Tim.

Their Irish sister unit - the Cabra Acquaintances - did sadly have such a good war.

And of course you're an honorary member of the regiment...

Perhaps they needed a catchier name?

I'm glad the paintwork worked - I still have plenty more to do!

Tim,
Superb painting of the AIP figures in Toy Soldier style. You have inspired me to attempt to do the same- if I can do half as good I'll be a happy chap. Thanks. KEV.
