I think the 'bits' are called scaffolding, the 3d printer equivalent of sprue.
Flatpack has confessed to breaking rule No. one of the wargamers code.
To wit, he threw it away!!!!!!
It can be used as detritus on ruined modern/sci-fi buildings.
He has been told off.

More 28mm 3D printed vehicles for the vehicle pool.
These 3 from Paint and glue.
Very nice as they didnít come with the scaffolding on the vehicles, so with no scaffolding removal time, I could get straight on with the painting.

Here they are added to the first 3 that I painted from the tank factory uk.
Thereís also a metal Bren carrier type thing, that I think I got from Empress in the past.

Had a chance to finish off a few more figures yesterday.

Added a British Naval unit.


Then added 4 Sikh officers as I seemed to have 16 Sikh infantrymen.




Now have about 80 afghan/hill tribesmen/slave traders. Just need to add some flags in the next couple of days. Majority of them are Perry plastics but there are some Empress afghans in there too.




Then finally a couple of character figures that had been sat around for a few years. Iím sure we can get them on the table for a reason.

Nice of you to paint up enough cast members for a decent North West frontier film.
I know you have a Train, so that one with a few Brits & a child Indian Prince is do-able.

I really like what you are making. I must resist getting drawn into another era of conflict... must... resist!

The Lenin figure came from a bargain box at the Newark show a few years ago, although I have seen it recently in a pairing with another figure. I canít remember the firm but it was to do with Victorian sci-fi I think.
