Odds and Sods Part 2

Lots of distractions preventing me from making any real progress lately have led to a new policy: less is more and small steps are large ones. To that tenuous end, here are a few of the things I have been doing lately; there are other bits 'n' pieces, but these are probably worth mentioning.






Plastic Soldier Company Late German Infantry, I've had these a while, only got round to starting them recently. They are intended to be used with THW CR 3.0 freebie skirmish rules, which I think are fab :) I also bought some Red Army bods too at Salute, but, alas, they remain in their box for now...







Next up - Peter Pig's US Marine sniper team, which I recently acquired to enhance my Ambush Alley/ CR 3.0 games. I really love the Pig's stuff and will continue to support them; I now have one of their recently released  Humvees to further supplement my forces...however at time of typing it remains in its package...





Finally, a few action shots from a recent CR 3.0 skirmish game (Ilove their mechanics); I suppose man-to-man combat has always been my favourite mode of (battle) play...


There you go, then, quick and cheerful - I seem to have solved the 'Blogger issue' too, now I have downloaded Google Chrome...hmmm, conspiracy after all, methinks...


Regards,


Monty

  7. Thanks chaps, very kind as ever!
    Steve, I use AP Strong Tone dip (brushed) on all my figures, coupled with some heavy dry-brushing prior to application. I like the grimy look it gives and wanted this in particular for the Germans, whom I wanted 'battle-hardened' ;)
    Regards,
