Company Command from India

3/2nd Punjab
Company B Command

   Since my gaming group is looking at some desert Flames of War in the near future, I thought I needed to get on the ball with my 4th Indian Division troops. I bought another platoon of infantry, which I have cleaned up, mounted on popsicle sticks, and primed black. I also purchased some additional India Pattern Carriers, bringing my total of those to six, and a trio of Grant tanks. These I bought painted from eBay.

   However, I already had a company command blister, so I have been working on them. Not many bases, of course, just the Company Commander, the 2iC, and a pair of Blacker Bombards, sort of a giant PIAT or spigot mortar. Except for a bit of touch up and some basing left to be added, here they are...

Also, Subedar-Major Bahadur and Sergeant Singh

Needs some basing to match my others.
