A good start - the Sherman has been weathered nicely.

Great stuff, and the weathering on the Sherman looks especially good without being overstated.

Prototype for power poles for Europe.  Materials used were two sizes of skewers, washer, icy pole sticks and left over sprue.

Nice work.

Are they for power or telephone/telegraph wires?

Edit:  Thank you!

Literally, I have no idea UVS.   lol  Maybe they are telephone poles??

I just looked at contemporary pictures and constructed them, compromising on ease of construction and availability of materials.

Great photos.

And finished the telephone/telegraph/electricity poles. Six of, enough for a standard table, I think.

Great job on the Sherman, Ragnar. Just right, and I like the stowage.

The North Nova Scotia Highlanders get some reinforcements. 

A Warlord resin Bren carrier and two Blacktree riflemen. 

Sorry about the blurred photo, it must not be their 'good' side.

They haven't been zapped with the spray varnish yet, so the brown of the uniforms will end up quite darker.

Nice. Just curious how you are obtaining BTD figures, given the difficulty of getting an order successfully?

Thanks.

I bought a platoon's worth of British and WSS years ago.  Looking to Crusader for my reinforcements these days.
