Cool, 20mm?
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

Yep 20mm.

Only one AB in there... the Medic.

The rest are a mix from Quino Plana Major, Battlefield/Blitz, Wartime (who all use the same sculptor) and Kelly's Heroes.

Lovely work as ever sir! Referring ‘wrapped up against the weather’ are you going to winterise their bases any or are they staying as is? (I seem to think that you have winterised you’re table/scenery for games before using something that can be removed later).

Keep up the good work it’s inspiring to those of us who aren’t so productive currently (My iPads gallery has a good proportion of pics of your minis so I can check my colours!).

Stay safe,

I did do proper snow/frost bases at first but find it very limiting as most of the time there aint much snow around.

These are more the 'mud and grass' generic look so they work on most terrain I have.

I’m glad you said that because apart from a full, snow table I always found that overly wintered bases (and even light or partial) nearly always look off slightly, no matter how well done, and changing the terrain to be more wintery has a better effect.

Luckily I game in 15mm and whilst Peter Pig does winter Germans he hasn’t done any winter Americans or British so I haven’t accidentally started a whole new thing! Yet, not until I get Normandy/Europe suitably pretty and Tunisia playable. And nearly all for Battlegroup of some variety  :D

Thank you
