German Tanks finished ...

Another session and the initial lot of German tanks is finished. Actually more panthers than I planned, but finding them for sale at £2.50 each at a Toy &Train fair was too much temptation.

For Starters ....

Target period for my gaming is western front 1944+; scale 1/72 or 1/76. For tanks I've been collecting up oddments from car boots and toy&train fairs and buying some items from shops and online orders.

I've currently got about 12 shermans which form the basis of a british tank regiment; for the germans I have the following 1 tiger, 2 PzIVs, 1 Elefant.

I've got some Valiant plastic infantry figures to assemble and paint, one box of britsih and one of germans.

Ruleset used will be Rapid Fire. I've had a trial game using Rapid Fire for Rookies; quite an enjoyable game it was too.

I have other wargame interests: 18C, ECW and Dark Ages (saxons/vikings). So progress on this project may be a bit slow.
