Hi guys, Here's my latest project, a 1/16th scale figure of a Australian bren gunner in Timor in 1942, sculpted many years ago by my old mate and mentor Phil Walden. I orginally painted this figure in oils (very badly) back in the late 1980's, and decided to give him an acrylic make-over for the new millenium. The bren gun will be slung over his shoulders and resting on top of his ammo pouches. The look on his face is one of desperate weary defiance. The figure represents a member of Australia's 2/2 Independent Company, a small force of less than 300 men stationed on the island of Timor in 1942 to fight a desperate and brutal guerilla war against a force of 13,000 crack Japanese soldiers and paratroopers. The surviving men of 2/2 Independent Company were eventually rescued after having tied down a vastly superior enemy force for over a year and inflicting very heavy casualties on them. Hope you like it so far.
