Ok, missing Sturm trooper and the four Artizan rifles.  Thought I’d paint a few tank commanders whilst at it.



And one for Normandy whilst at it.

Your figs look great!  I'm especially impressed with the camo.

Agreed about Warlords metal bits.  I bought both the Blitzkrieg Germans and US Rangers just to get them.  Wish they would sell them in a blister...

Who makes the roads?

Total Battle Miniatures, they make metalled roads too.  Pretty comparable cost wise with other manufacturers.

Thanks for comments.

I really like the Panther commander.
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

Cheers James.

Well, Jamie just handed me my first two British AFV’s...a lovely pair of Achilles Tank Destroyers.....beautiful!

I need to get on with ordering some crew for them...but I suppose more importantly, I need to get on with painting a British force ready for our Normandy games.  I have time a plenty as we have an Ardennes campaign to play out first, but I like to be prepared.

Planning on on having  a BIG CoC Normandy game in the Summer, complete with fine British Weather and BBQ with the guys, so with that in mind, I handed Jamie my reconnaissance troop of three Cromwell’s and a Sherman Firefly to complete my  British armour.  Other bits to support it include a Humber II, a couple of Universal carriers, a halftrack  and maybe a pair of trucks....but they can all wait until nearer the time.

I also have a platoon of British courtesy of Crusader miniatures with a few Artizan minis to make up numbers. 

Of course, Jamie is ALSO collecting British...so lots of choice...!

Little did the passing destroyers realise how close to their maker they came when they passed the hidden killer lurking at the edge of the woods....



And not far away, forward elements of Panzer Lehr inch their way forward.



Again, from the talented brush of Jamie!  I need to paint the infantry for that too!   lol

I have almost a full platoon of British painted years ago..they are the old Chiltern ones, they might need touching up and a few more painted..I remember I was in the middle of converting a platoon radio man and one with a captured panzerfaust

Sounds to me James with a little tweaking then, you pretty much have a force to play with!

Edit:  another batch of wire fencing!

Cheers fella.  Yes, I thought it necessary to be able to represent when a tanks or other AFV has broken through simply to remind any following troops there effectively is no obstacle there any more!

I could of course just remove a section of fence....but this looks better I think.

I now need the same on a stretch of wooden fencing!
