From SteveM: 15mm WWII SSF Platoon 'The Devil's Brigade' (246 points)


Steve sends in a fine unit of Flames of War infantry depicting a platoon from the famous 'Devil's Brigade'.




These are 15mm Battlefront miniatures.


The 1st Special Service Force (or 'Devil's Brigade') was an elite formation composed of Canadian and Americans who were specially trained for operating in very adverse conditions.  They gained particular notoriety for their service in the Italian campaigns, especially in the mountainous regions of that country. In my work I've had the pleasure of meeting several veterans of the SSF and they were all very gracious yet still very impressive and martial in their bearing - 'Hard Men' as they say.


This group of 82 figures will net Steve 246 points. This shoots Steve to the leading group - well done, Old Boy!

Next for Steve is a German Sturmkompanie and then onto some figures for 'Force on Force'.
