Simon and Mick have sent me a pair of Morris 15cwt's .( arrived today along with the new wish list :o)
A couple of disclaimers .They only sent the Bren set not the Lewis But Hay ho!
The Bren gun torso has warped in the mould. So the rear bar has bent round onto the gas cape role. But its easy enough to release from the body and bend it back into the right place. ( even easier if you warm the figure up first.)
Last of all I had to cut the rear foot off the mount in the Tillly. Not because it won't fit . But simply because I was lazy and left the tab on the seat backs ( as this Tilly is put together to be scenery not as a miniature.) So it's nibbled into the space in the flat bed.

That's a bit boring on its own. So here's a few more hints on upcoming releases .

Out of curiosity are you heading to Partizan in three weeks?

You're going to single-handedly make home-front Blitz games a thing, aren't you?

Paul, Yes
Ewan, Yes
Matt, That would imply I'd made downed Air crew's and someone to come ashore to rescue said crews. Fire watchers, bucket chains, incendiary fire crews , inflatable water reservoirs,and other big bits
Then I'd have to know things such as these and stirrup pumps were issues roughly every 115 yards or every thirty house's.

I watched it a while ago .( nearly found myself making the watch house and yard for my own table.)
Just re watched. The Way Forward( The Immortal Battalion in the U.S.) trying to find some inspiration.

There's a few more ruined bits to go with these. ( including a universal carrier ;))

Love those ruins...can certainly make use of some of them for my Cold War project (although will probably steer clear of the vehicles as they date it).

Also interesting to see the rescue parties, having just made some stretcher parties for my own game.

That's a suspiciously specific list you have there, friendo.  :D lol

Incidentally, haven't you already made downed aircrew? I'm all but certain there's pics of German ones on the forums somewhere, you sly dog.

Nope .
Only one off Pulp stuff.
I'll make the missing props for the crashed card plane tonight. If the weather's okay I'll use it as a backdrop for the downed 'aircrew' greens,  in the morning.
