Objectives Etc.

Whilst trying to find something last week I came across a crashed German plane I had started, when I cannot remember, long enough ago to mislay the decals for it anyway. I think it was for a display game that did not materialise at some point, though I could be wrong, I thought that it would be ideal for an objective marker in our Battlegroup games. Without further ado I set to and painted it, the decals I stole off another kit I have yet to make, as it will be for the Nationalists in the Spanish Civil War I do not need the Luftwaffe ones.


  I am also getting towards the end of re-basing my 20mm WWII collection, sprucing them up a tad along the way, on the list was a command base, on it was a Kubelwagen, I don't know the manufacturer as I got it way back in the late 1990's. It as always bugged me because I was never able to fit it together with any degree of squareness, it always looked like an insurance write off, ideal I thought for a crashed one as another objective marker.

We made the trip over to Nottingham the weekend to attend the new show Red On Blue In Nottingham AKA ROBIN, my sole purchase was this livestock pen from Warbases, I could not leave with nothing now could I? If Shell Hole Scenics had not been a no show I had planned to invest in some WWII Hungarians if I liked them, I could not really tell from the web site pics, coupled with the fact that there are no photos for most of the range (who says shows are no longer necessary), oh well it may have saved me a bob or two as the urge as gone now.


I think this will be ideal as a cow shed in 20mm games and a pig pen in 28mm games, could be an objective marker too of course.

Check out Tales From Rhanzlistan for details of Monday's game over at GHQ, and also True To The East to see the victorious Comrade Robinski.

Next game is here at OHQ on Monday when we will start our Battlegroup  Fall Of The Reich campaign proper.
