|My Brits square off against French Tony's Germans. The terrain boards were made by Russian Tony and I years ago for|
Rapid Fire and Flames of War. Note rusty Airfix pontoon bridge and toy bridge which needs painting.
|The colourful buildings are a pre-painted set available at some wargames shows for about £75 - a steal!|
|The massive diecast armoured car is a stand in until the proper one is built.|
Resin Churchill painted by Nigel Cox, not sure who makes them.
A Hetzer approaches...
|Snapdragon Studio ruin. These are gorgeous models from this now defunct company, luckily we have tons of it!|
|More Snapdragon ruins, crate and craters. Warlord Hetzer from French Tony's collection.|
|Panning left to show off some more scenery...|
|and more of the same.|
|Elsewhere on the table. All the hedges and trees are Last Valley.|
|This looks strangely empty compared to great mass of humanity in our Napoleonic games.|
|Random shot! |
This pile of devices I confiscated from just two of my three daughters at 10-45pm one night!
All were in use simultaneously; i-con?
|A different game. Here Rich's Russians commanded by Russian Tony take on French Tony's Germans.|
|Rich donated this army to us when we left - generous chap!|
|Scenery details as before.|
|This impressive JSII was built and painted by me! Just needs a coat of matt varnish.|
The kit is 1/48th Tamiya. I've picked up a few more similar kits since.
|Rich built, painted and based these Russians who I think are from Plastic Toy Soldier Company, possibly!|
|Snapdragon trench system with Warlord plastic occupants - they need basing Tony.|
The tiny black counter is removed once the Panzerfaust in fired - clever.
|Russians occupy the coal bunker, they will eat today!|
|Yet another game this time Tony's Russians against Nigel Cox's Germans sporting some very pretty kit.|
|This shot shows off the Snapdragon Bocage and hills rather well.|
The diecast half track houses the objective which both sides must retrieve and carry off table to win.
Quintessential German armoured car superbly painted by Nigel.
Here it provides covering fire as the foot sloggers advance.
|The PzIV, work horse of the German Panzer Divisions.|
|The Russians are all over the objective.|
|Russian HMG fires from a prepared position.|
|Nigel's Germans in a trench and bunker system.|
|JS2 and KV2 - same scale.|
|This is a shot from a May Day Bank Holiday game Chris and I played some years ago. |
I massed the French cavalry in the centre and simply went for it.
Maybe one day I'll write up the whole game.
|I'd follow these two to the gates of hell itself!|
|So would this lot!|
Have a great weekend. Very best wishes,
