To celebrate Anzac Day I painted the limited edition 28mm WWI Honour Guard figure from Figures in Comfort. This figure represents the Australian Army Corp on the Western Front. I have painted 28th Battalion flashes on his shoulders. The 28th Battalion was raised in Western Australia. On Anzac Day I remember two grandfathers who served with the Australian Infantry in WWII. One was with 2/28th Battalion, seeing action in the Middle East, New Guinea and Borneo. The other was with 28th Battalion seeing action in New Britain. Thanks to all Australians that have served this great country. Least we forget.

The Anzacs now have armour support on the Western Front in the form of a British Whippet Tank. Named after a feisty woman, Grace the Whippet tank is sure to win many great tabletop victories. The Whippet Tank is from Brigade Games and is 28mm, or 1/56th scale.
