A quick tour of the defences ...

The two resin castings of an emplacement and pill box given to me by a friend, now painted (amazing what you can get done when you're stuck in the house due to the snow)

Hanomags finished

Really nice Amourfast kits which were nice amd easy to assemble -  given a quick paint job to match the rest of my german forces.

A couple of Churchill tanks

A couple of Churchill tanks to use for infantry support, got these at a local Toy & Train collectors fair today. They are diecast/plastic from the last 'buy and collect' series you could buy from newsagents.

Fill up the tank please ...

German supply depot, making use of the oil drum and crates resin castings I was given.

Some Scenic Accessories

Newly arrived to add to my slowly building collection of scenics for WWII, a pill box and emplacement - kindly donated by a friend who was clearing up his storage before moving house. He also gave me some other resin castings including oil/petrol drums - nice to make up a fuel dump.

so slow ...

Apologies for the lack of posting, I'm afraid this project is languishing in the doldrums - too distracted by my 18C world at the moment.

Trial painting of British and German infantry figs.

After finishing the russian tanks off this morning, I turned my attention to a few plastic figs (Valiant 1/72) which I had prepared for trial painting last month. A little smaller than the 25/28mm figs which I usually paint but I think I've not done too badly. Uniform colour may be off shade but I just want to have it approx right, not exactly right. First the 'British HQ'.....
Aha, looks the the germans are lost (?) ....

Infantry Started

I have now 'desprued' a box of Valiant 1/72 plastic Germans and British infanrty, all the figures have been assembled - quite a fiddly process but I am now converted to the benefits of these figures.

I've based all the germans ready for painting and have started some trial figures.
