Brits are coming!

Despite still having a few things to do for my Russians, making a start on the Belgians, not having touched the Americans or West Germans, I managed to secure some British for CWC off eBay! Two small auctions:

1. Some Challenger 1s, Warriors and other odds and ends. Enough to give me some armour and IFVs. Still need to paint some infantry though.

2. Some artillery support. Some M109s, M110s, some M113s with Wombat (I think) and some Fox recce vehicles.

The latter batch are a lot darker than the first lot but I think a light dry brush with my usual light grey will bring them out a little.

Also managed to get a few buildings as well. Couple of warehouses and two tower blocks. Really need to kick off my modular town project but keep getting distracted painting more vehicles! It would be good to get some scenery sorted so I can get a nice looking game going with my own stuff!

Hedges and hills and roads needed as well. Have plans for all these but as ever, time… I’m hoping I can take a couple of days off work between now and Christmas and get some stuff done. Providing of course I don’t get given a list of ‘jobs’! 🙂

More soon…

Preparing for battle

Seeing as I’ve been trying to reorganise the attic to create some space I thought I’d set up a small table and finally take the shrink off some of the Purbeck blocks I have. It’s only 4×4 but there is room when the underlying table is fully out to take it to 6×4 which for 15mm battles will do me. I also wanted to see what the troops I have to date actually look like en masse. Still having problems with the camera so no doubt if you zoom in then they’ll be out of focus!

So first an overall view as multiple lines of Rebels prepare to defend the hills:

And then views of the Rebel and British lines:

I want to do some mods to the Purbeck to add some texture and variety and maybe some fields. Or maybe just do them on card at sizes my fences will fit around! And I need roads. And I’ve got a few buildings to paint up as well.

There is just sooo little time….
