Dave's buildings continued

                    A few pictures of Dave's ruined city work in progress, for his Stalingrad project

These have a medium sized footprint and represent a block of building that would a full company to occupy

Coming along nicely I am sure you will all agree!

Lately arrived goodies

Nice little extras from my daughter Ashley

A couple of bags of very smart trees, a bag of jungle plants and trees, and some very good quality paint brushes. Bonus!

The three battalions of parachute infantry

Support assets, still a MMG platoon and engineer platoon to add

PIAT and ammo porter platoons, still one PIAT to add

Various command sections

Gun crews.

Best to you all for this year and the next. All of your Blogs are a great source of inspiration to me when it comes to my hobby.

New arrivals

A couple of this year's presents...

Nice little additions to my small Cold War collection

And this little number will give me a full company of these. Who says it is better to give than receive? :) :)

Hope you all had a good one

20mm Jungle Hut

Another very good resin building by Frontline 

Good for any jungle scenery, any era

Accurate sized footprint and very good value for money.

Friday, December 9, 2016


Just your average bog-standard garden shed variety shelter really...

These are one piece resin models by Frontline; actually, from their small range of Sealion items in 20mm

Simple but really tidy little models, about AUD$10.

WW2 Indian Infantry Battalion

I've had this group a while but have had them out recently for a touch up

Based for CD3 1941-45

These were painted with Tamiya acrylics 

The battalion has two figures by Atlantic and several others as well.

The Italeri Well

Nice little piece this

Probably useful for multiple periods and theatres 

Just a little more painting around the rope work to do

Useful addition if you can get it cheap.

Project Pictures

Owing to recent reinforcement from down south, a long term project has gained new life.

Anyway, the progress...

Mortar platoons

Command sections

Flamethrower engineer platoon

MMG stand


Rifle platoons, a few minor alterations but nothing drastic. 

I still have to fill gaps and add some more weapon slings.
