|You can see how thick the mat is and the varied shade compared to the S&A Scenics felt mat behind it.|
|I doubt I could have achieved this finish without an awful lot of work!|
More 'Arcane' houses.
My little Normandy village has expanded with further 'Arcane' MDF buildings, I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of putting these together and getting a bit of paint on them, maybe somewhat 'Balamory' but I like it! The damaged roofs are very well modeled with the exposed beams etc, they are very simple to glue together.
German artillery battery.
I had finished these some time back but had been on the lookout for some tows to get them where they need to be as these are 'immobile' guns. I found these five little resin halftrack tows on eBay for a snip at just £12.00. A repaint and bases took no time and finishes off the battery nicely. You can also see the staff team (table), command team and two spotter teams. I also got a template for them, useful device with all the ranging in and firing info printed on it.
Once I have finished some painting for John C this week I will start to put some games together at last. It's been a very long time since I felt so much enthusiasm for this hobby and I do for see Flames of War and Bolt Action occupying me for a long time to come.
|A hint at the future direction, three earlier Panzer III varients at rear. The Tiger 1E in front will complete and expand my Heavy Panzer Platoon along with the ridiculously expensive Wittmann Tiger pack.|
|The story of Micheal Wittmann I found very moving, so I had to have this!|
And finally, some FoW essentials gathered via ebay, loads of dice and markers plus the artillery template.
