28mm Artizan Long Range Desert Group (LRDG)

At long last I have been able to put the DAK to one side and start on the British. Ever since I started war gaming I have had a hankering for putting together figures from the unit my maternal grandfather went on to serve with, the Long Range Desert Group.
 
Artizan Miniatures produce a small range of LRDG/SAS and desert commando figures. I started three of the LRDG packs. The figures were all well cast and in dynamic poses.
 
In order to differentiate them from the DAK I chose a lighter palette. The base colours for the uniforms are Vallejo Iraqi Sand and Vallejo English Uniform.
 
 
 
 All the webbing details were picked out with a 50/50 mixture of the two base colours.
 
This first group of LRDG are wearing a more standard uniform than those normally associated with the unit, but are historically accurate.
Next on the paint tray are six more LRDG, but with much more varied uniforms.
