A little review ....

I had a good old rummage through my WW2 stuff. I decided to focus on my current gaming interest period of the early war on the western front using 20mm (25mm) figures, covering
  • Britain's Home front - home guard, some regulars, downed german air crew, potential invasion
  • French Occupation and Resistance - germans, french resistance fighters, downed british air crew, british raids on coastal and special targets.
  • German potential invasion of Britain 1940/41.
For the above I have most of what I need but will be adding new items, first up will be some extra british civilian characters.

Additionally for the future I'll be adding to my collection to allow for games involving platoon actions between German and Allied forces on the western front from 1944 onwards - this is currently planned to use 28mm figures.

Parish Church

I'm currently reviewing my WW2 collection, things to add etc.

I started with scenics, one item that needed attention was a church, which I had made up using some Hornby kits
the stonework was a bit dark in colour and usage was clunky due to it being on a large base. So I removed it from the base and gave it a light wash of sandstone colour to improve it
 the roofs come off and has a basic interior of flagstones done using Metcalf OO/HO paving sheets
I may in the future add a basic interior.
