Perry Miniatures 2-pdr and some Desert Rats conversions

My 2-pdr anti-tank gun arrived on Thursday evening so before going to the wargames club it was cleaned up an stuck together. As soon as I got home from work last night it had a coat of primer and I did the base-coat and wash of Vallejo Sepia as well as the base texturing.

Rising early this morning I did the highlights and painted the base and it's fresh from a blast of Testors Dullcote.

Here are some images, it's going to be in action tomorrow at the campaign day that Tim is running.

I already had the base-coat and wash done on a couple of conversions I made from the Desert Rats set, first of all a Bren gun on an anti-aircraft mount, this was a very simple one, it's just the normal Bren arms on a standing body with the tripod fashioned from brass rod.

I also made a couple of stretcher bearers, the stretchers are two pieces of brass rod glued together and then wrapped in tissue paper that is set with super-glue.


  1. Looking nice mate. DAK ordered to face you, just travelling down Italy to get a ship now.

  2. Beautiful, love the clothes...

  3. Great work. The 2 pounder is just perfect.

  4. lovely job there - and quick too.

  5. Great work Scrivs, those conversions are really well done.

    It must be about time to see your entire 8th army collection together in one place!

  6. Thank you both. I'll have to set up a photo-shoot when the last few figures are done and the weather is better.

  7. Only just saw this.. nice stuff. The 2pdr looks particularly good.

    1. Cheers Martin, I hope to get them out - oo-er missus - for our game on Thursday.
