I added a few support teams to my British 8th Army. These Perry minis have really grown on me and I am looking forward to working on more of these great WW2 models.
First up is the Vickers team. This is a four man set but for Bolt Action you only need three. This will allow me to re-purpose the extra figure for some other function. These figures are so small the gun and both crew easily fit on a 40mm round base.
Next is the 3" mortar team. Like the Vickers team this is a 4 figure set where only 3 are needed in the game. I will be using the spotter figure as an artillery observer and the Vickers commander will fill in as the spotter for the mortar. Again, the figures are so small I was able to easily fit three figures and the mortar on a single 40mm round base.
Lastly is the Perry 6 pdr gun for the 8th army. This model is really beautiful but a little fiddly to build. The gun and the entire crew is on a three inch base. For Bolt Action I only need three crew but I decided it looked better with all four figures. Make no real difference for game play, just treat the team as having three wounds.
I have a few other items for this project so stay tuned for more Perry goodness.
