This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
The basic painting is finished for the first 30 Perry plastic British 8th Army infantry. These troops will be part of a force I'm building for WW2 skirmish gaming. The current ruleset of choice is Bolt Action which gives a great game and a good feel for the period.
First up is a 12 man squad of SAS guys - the Perry set has extra heads for the SAS so a little surgery and you're good to go. I'll likely field these guys in smaller sections for Bolt Action.
The second 12 man squad is regular British infantry.
A Bren Carrier - this is the first of three that come in the Bren Carrier Platoon deal from the Perry's - it's a one piece resin model that was a lot of fun to paint.
Another view - it needs some decals doesn't it?
The Perry box comes with 38 figures and here are the last eight on the painting table. These should get done in the next week or so.
