The Loneliness Of The Socially Distanced Wargamer

Yes folks I have entered the competition for the longest blog post title ( apologies to Alan Sillitoe), do you know of a longer one? (hyphenated ones don't count)
Here are a few items I have painted for my own collections in recent days, in progress are four Moors for the Spanish Civil War, two more Brits for WWII, a Russian izba and a PE-2 bomber for the Soviets.

20mm piggies for the Bikkliski Collective farm, from Pendraken if I remember correctly.

20mm fences for the Eastern Front, Ironclad Miniatures

Late war British infantry, Empress Miniature

Cards for Bolt Action solo, these can be downloaded off the Solo Wargaming With Miniatures FB page, I believe that they have also been added to Bolt Action FB page too.

Keep safe folks.

Aqui Vamos - A Spanish Civil War Action

Reports of an astonishing Republican victory in the area of Rawnsla is just coming in, both sides of the conflict converged on an important railway centre.
The Republican attack was spearheaded by local militiamen, although inexperienced they hemmed in the advancing Nationalist militia until the International Brigade could come up and support them.
A fierce encounter ensued, but the Republican forces advance on a broad front brought more firepower to bear and a heroic assault by a section of fanatical militia tore a gap in the Nationalist centre again stopping the Nationalist attempt to broaden their front.
The Nationalist forces finally lost heart and quit the field.
