The Random Ramblings Of A Wargamer And Painter (OHQ Painting Service) Of Associated Miniatures

Laid Low

A crap year end on the gaming front, the winter V bug as struck the folk at OHQ, so no game this week or next, I am now behind with work so chances of putting paint on my own stuff is not likely until the new year now.
Before this however I was able to finish off a German Great War flame thrower team and five 20mm volksturm for the Battlegroup campaign weekend next month, these require basing though.
I have also finished this Perry Miniatures bren carrier, I have been working on this for a while on and off, not the start of a new project (flutter, flutter) but an iconic vehicle I fancied owning. I also picked up a 20mm Britannia one for my WWII Soviet forces at Warfare.

  3. Nice carrier.........I have treated myself to a squad under the xmas tree. I also need to invest in a flamethrower/pioneer squad but this can wait behind a few other projects ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. Hope you're feeling better soon.

    The carrier looks great - love the camo. You and those Perry fellows are not making it easy for me to avoid the temptation to add more to my WW2 North Africa collection!

    1. Thank you Tim. It is very tempting indeed, especially when Messrs Perry post their games on FB too. The release of Battlegroup Tobruk next year will be further temptation for me.
