Project finished...........well, sort of.

 Nice little group of Afrika Korp vehicles to choose from now for a game of Bolt Action. This lot are resin Blitzkreig Miniatures.

 50mm anti-tank gun from Warlord Games.

 A resin 3D printed 25pdr and ammo trailer. I have some German crew for this but they are based individually as I will use this for my Aussies later. (Future project maybe).

 And a selection of infantry, command and heavy weapons teams. These were all completed in the last few months.
 The HMG and Rommel are Warlord and the rest are Artizan Designs. I followed the colour scheme from a tutorial on 'Paint all the Minis'
Have a look, its a great site.

Thanks for visiting.

Not much has been happening on the painting desk for a while.
I finally finished off a unit of Vikings. These are second hand, so did a bit of a repaint and added a few shield designs.
This is supposed to represent a deep unit for TtS rules so its really the base depth that matters. I tried squeezing a few more minis on the base but then it looked really crowded and a bit of a pain with the spears pointing in all directions. Now I remember what a pain it was organising all the individual based models on a movement tray for WAB games.

On another note I've been making some headway with my DAK forces.

Three units of Spanish light horse based for To the Strongest. Figures are Crusader miniatures and shields by Little Big Men

Ancient Spanish

 A few new units added to the war cabinet for my 'To the Strongest' armies. 
 I have Roman and Carthaginian armies for the Punic wars but no Spanish troops so I thought I had better rectify that.  5 units of Iberian scutarii (Javelinmen)
 4 units of Iberian caetrati (light infantry)


All the figures are "Crusader miniatures" majority of shield transfers are "Littlebigmen"

Sad news

The passing of Windsor DAVIES.

Actor and star of It Ain't Half Hot Mum, Windsor Davies, has died.
Davies, 88, who was best known as the sergeant major in the TV series, died on Thursday, his family said.
Born in Canning Town, London, he returned to his father's home village, Nant-y-Moel in Bridgend county, when World War Two broke out.
It Ain't Half Hot Mum co-star Melvyn Hayes, who played Gunner/Bombardier Gloria Beaumont, called him "one of the good guys".*

Finally finished 4 units of hoplites based for TtS.
Figures are Foundry miniatures and some of the shields have LBM transfers on them.
I wish I could say I painted the lot but I only did about one and a half bases worth, The rest I purchased second hand off a friend. They had hand painted shields which looked great. I just changed the old lead spears for steel ones and redid the bronze.

 I've had enough of hoplites for a while.
