Raventhorpe British Paratroopers
Inspired by the new RapidFire! Normandy Battlegroups and Normandy Battlegames books, as well as the earlier D-Day scenario book, I have focused since the Spring on assembling a 250 point RF Battlegroups 6th Airborne force, while also keeping an eye of having the Airborne forces for Scenario 8 in the D-Day book.
To this end, here are two of the Battlegroups battalions - smaller than the "traditional" organization, with 2 fewer troops per company and a smaller HQ company.
They are photographed in a home-made Normandy farm courtyard:
While not part of the Battlegroups battalion, here are a 2" mortar team and a Forward Observer team:
