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

Its All Very.....

Drab, a bit like this year really. Nothing bright and colorful so look away now, additions to the WWII collections only.
First up I only have one SU76 and need two for the upcoming Starpel scenario game, written by Piers Brand, featuring in Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy #108, so I assembled and painted the three PSC ones I had waiting in their box. They do not appear until turn seven, given my recent track record my Volksturm will be long gone by then, but at least its one box left in the plastic kit pimple.



AB and Foundry crew figures.

Speaking of the Volksturm I needed another two figures for the scenario, luckily I had these Wartime Miniatures, now produced by Simon's Soldiers in the lead mountain.
Never needing much of an excuse to add to the collection, the scenario requires scouts and combat engineers, of which I have some. Not wanting to use "normal" infantry as a substitute I ordered up these AB Figures scouts.
Finally you may recall from a previous post I started some 28mm Germans in foxholes, here they are, I just need to do a LMG team to join them now.
All being well we will be playing the scenario here at OHQ next Monday.

Until then KBO.

    1. Indeed it will be good to get back to some FtF gaming in OHQ.
      It's very doubtful I will seal it with a win but it will be fun trying.

    1. Thank you George. As for the conjuring trick gone wrong they were free and plastic, so it doesn't count🙂

    1. Thank you Jon. Can't say I noticed the compartment panels, I used the late model ones.
