Listen very carefully...

...the last of the French Resistance group are here.

Ready to destroy that 88, rescue lost Allied airmen or aid US paratroopers.

This is the last section of these I have. There are a couple of more figures languishing in the garage but they look more East of the Dnieper than West of the Rhine.

Should make for some interesting games (like I have time to play!).

All figures are Bolt Action and the advantage of resistance fighters is you can make the uniforms up.

Bolt Action 88

The grand plan of clearing my painting desk is coming to fruition and I'm even resisting the temptation of a mad cackle or two after that statement.

Next off the bench and into the garage is an 88.

The crew are painted in Luftwaffe colours, just to be different.

I've built, well that's a strong word, smeared some wood filler across a piece of MDF to make a base.

It can also be deployed in one of Adrian's Walls Eastern Front bunkers.

All figures are Warlord, the bunker is Adrian's Walls and all uniform mistakes my own.

Claymore 2015

Last weekend I had the pleasure to take part in the League of Augsburg demonstration game at Claymore 2015.

It was a Donnybrook game played out on some fabulous wintry terrain by Barry Hilton.

I commanded the Swedes and although my musketry rolls made the Russian contingent think they were facing Gatling guns, I naturally managed to get the Swedish commander killed.

Well you try doing a three point turn in a sled in front of a horde of charging Cossacks!

More pictures to be found on the League of Augsburg site.
