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…

  1. You lukcy man. Had I seen that lot up for auction so soon after pay-day you'd have had a bidding war on your hands.
    Good luck with the army. May it bring you many happy victories.

  2. I really need to stop buying though! I've got a stack of painted to base, a stack to paint and a little list of odds and ends I keep thinking I need! Plus some West Germans that I know I'll need to repaint but can't face the prospect so may just sell them!
    Looking forward to doing a few Brits though. Also, a lot of the Belgian stuff I have may end up surplus and supplementing the Brits anyway.
