WW2 in 28mm (1/56th scale) British Armoured Platoon 1944-1945

I'm continuing to paint up my 8th Battalion Rifles - Motor Infantry Platoon with the 2nd Section (squad) finished and varnished pictured below.
2nd section 8th Rifles
The 2nd section is split into two unequal halves of:
Rifle Group
1 corporal armed with a sten gun
3 riflemen with SMLE rifles
1 rifleman with a PIAT (anti-tank weapon)
Gun Group
1 lance corporal armed with a sten gun
1 Bren gunner
1 loader with SMLE rifle

2nd section 8th Rifles

The Platoon HQ has been completed as well. Comprising 6 figures: The platoon commander (a lieutenant), the platoon sergeant and a signaller (radio op.) and 3 others, one of which has a small handheld 2 inch mortar used for laying a smoke screen.

Platoon Commander (Lieutenant) with a pistol and Platoon Sergeant with a Thompson Sub Machine Gun (SMG).
The third section will follow together with a quick guide to converting steel helmets to have scrim netting.
All these figures are 28mm miniatures I bought unpainted from
