What I’m Working on Now…

Switching fronts for a while. Battlefront Guards Rocket Battalion. These 4 BM-13 Katyusha rocket launchers have been sitting on the bench for some time part of the ever growing (and ever more depressing) lead, plastic and resin stockpiles!

What I’m Working on Now…

Over at the League of Augsburg I’ve developed a little bit of a reputation for killing off senior officers. With this in mind I’ve started building a scene which will form one of the Huguenots command stands.
The C.O. is no more and his body is being guarded by one of his trustworthy soldiers (or somebody who sees an opportunity for a bit of looting later). Meanwhile the new C.O. has been handed a bottle to get over the shock and is dictating his will to a trusted comrade from another regiment. All figures are from Warfare Miniatures.

Finished Unit – WW II British Shermans

These are supposed to look like the Irish Guards round about Arnhem. Didn’t have the correct regiment number (53) in my transfer stock so may add this later if I can track the transfer down or if I’m feeling particularly brave I may try to hand paint them (how difficult can a small red square and the number 53 be???).
All miniatures are from the Open Fire starter set from Flames of War. Pretty much used the painting guide supplied with that except used GW Nuln Oil for black ink as I find it’s ready to use out of the tub and I usually have to thin Vallejo down.

What I’m Working on Now

Sherman tanks from the Open Fire box set. Pretty much following the instructions in the manual.
