Well, I did manage to get some gaming and modelling in despite a week at Nescliffe Training Camp (I still bear the nettle stings)...
First, a game of Battlefield Evolution. These figures used to be extremely cheap and came pre-painted from Mongoose Publishing, but the range was short lived and quickly discontinued before I was even aware of it. Still, I nabbed a few before they ran out of warehouse stock.
SAS snipers support British and European Federation Task Force troops who are moving up the road.
The three Egyptian technicals inflict casualties on the British infantry section, but they are quickly wiped out in the open by the Challenger II and underslung grenade launcher of the SAS spotter.
The Egyptians are held up in an old Suez-era bunker covering the valley. They have plenty of Kalashnikovs surpressing the SAS sniper team, and a sophiscated bought-in Russian rocket launcher capable of destroying the Challenger.
The casualties inflicted on the British infantry by the technicals delays the main thrust of the attack, but the Challenger is almost unstoppable.
The Egyptian regular troops in cover behind the bunker. Eventually, the Challenger destroyed the bunker, but before the EFTF could reach their positions, the AA tank withdrew with some of the Egyptian infantry.
Also in my projects list, is this... those of you who are big on heraldry, or 20th century British politics, will notice the markings and may be able to guess at what my next project will be...
My Waffen-SS section has finally been finished, with only the MG34 gunner and loader to go.
Some ghoulish zombies from Gentle Giant, which were quite pricey to ship across the Atlantic.
And my three WW2 superheroes, Oberfuhrer von Kartoffelsalat, Captain Liberty and Union Jack.
