Modern Madness !
Recently I have been focused on painting my 15mm SciFi figures as well as take part on some play testing of a new rule-set. As we are thinking of moving abodes I decided to start sorting out the large box of figures\models\crap that is a collection of items from over 25+ years of war-gaming. Its always a delight to rifle through the box of shame and find all sorts of boxes filled with figures saved for a later day. My 1/72 WW2 North Africa Armies, 1/72 Pacific, 1/72 Modern and 1/72 ACW figures all sitting nicely for a rainy day (well rainy year more like it). So for a break and something different I whipped out some ww2 figures and will spend a week painting to my hearts content. I've decided to ditch my 28mm WW2 collection (Selling on trademe is such a bore !) and will give away the few WW2 Late War vehicles I have left to the Archduke himself.
Below Esci Spetnaz. 20 years in a box so time they were painted ! I've read a few blogs recently aimed at Command Decision Moderns, I'm half tempted to find my fictional 90's country notes and revise my campaign for a future date. My fictional campaign all spawned from the Programmed Scenarios "Coup De Etat" scenario and a good 15 years of getting figures in dribs and drabs has made it possible. Now all I need is time, space,rules...............
The beginnings of my Italian Army for the desert. A mix of SHQ "sunhat" troops and the good old trusty airfix specials. The figure below was just to test out my colour selection and I quite like it. Over the years I have picked up a lot of ww2 Early Africa figures\vehicles and now I see S model have a Tankette and Vickers Lt Tank for sale.
