I have finally finished painting another platoon of British Infantry for my 8th Army North Africa forces. I'm also within a gnats whisker of completing an accompanying Heavy Machine Gun Platoon to provide support, which should be ready to show off by tomorrow. Although the Desert war is often seen as a tank war it was the Infantry Divisions that were the real backbone of the British Eighth Army. This Rifle Platoon comes with seven Rifle/MG teams, a Light Mortar team and an Anti-tank Rifle team.
