Home Front 1941: Royal Enginieers

  The relentless slog to get some nearly finished projects finally laid to bed has seen me finishing off some of the Home Guard units I have had hanging about for a while.
  These guys are a small section from the Royal Engineers who happen to be in town building some beach defences when the Germans invade in 1941. This means they are Regular Army, as opposed to Home Guard, but as they are lead by an NCO they have been attached to my Home Guard Platoon.

First up, a flamethrower section. Useful for rooting Fallschirmjager out of hedgerows, but perhaps more useful (although very risky) as an anti-tank weapon, if they can get close enough.

Next up is a sapper team- for building and blowing. One with wire cutters, one setting a demo charge and one with a mine sweeper- there aren't any rules in Bolt Action for this kind of unit (even though these are form the Bolt Action range) so I will be building them up to a unit of 5 with some of the plastic Bolt Action figures, sticking them in a Bren Carrier and using them as a Regular Bren team.

Nice additions. Have to admit the sappers would make a great looking unit. Great idea to add them to bren team and turn them into squad :D

That's a cracking looking set and lovely paint job to boot.
