Sitzkreig

I was unable to host the planned 1940 game today due to a hospital appointment coming through. On the plus side I have been able to complete more transport and a Flak36 for the Germans and with the hospital being near Wolverhampton and at 10am, Dave kindly organized a small French Indian Wars game over at GHQ (look out for a report from Tales From GHQ in due course) so I could swing by afterwards.
I have also started to repaint my Fat Frank roads to blend in with my bases a little better.
Now the transport pictures, first a Horch. Kfz15  for the Schutzen Platoon HQ. Car is from Millicast and the crew are AB Figures.

Next a Krupp Kdkfz.69 to tow the Pak36, an old Matchbox kit a kind gift from Matt Bickley.
Next a Sdkfz7.10 to tow the infantry gun (when I paint it) An old Skytrex model I have repainted in Dunkelgrau.
Lastly the Flak36 88, another gift from Matt with Simon's Soldiers and AB Figures (officer) crew.
Bases as always from Warbases.
Pending anymore appointments these should be on the table for the rearranged game next week.

    1. Thank you Matt. The roads are great and reasonably priced, they do however have a tendency to curl up along the long hedges, I store them in a RUB with card in-between each layer and put my resin cobbled roads on top which seems to keep them in check.

  5. Great stuff, but I'm not sure the spotter for the '88 will see anything from down there.

  8. Splendid and of course nice additions with the AB. A super job on the roads. I had a mild problem with the Fat Franck roads, they were stored between layers of foam paper …. But I think a resin weight would have improved things …. Anyway, during re-organisation, I had them just partly out of the garage, went in for a cuppa and the heavens opened …. The roads are no more!

  10. A lovely mix there Phil, using transports now in Bolt Action, even just to have them on the table.

    1. Thank you George. It's always nice to have transports a lot more affordable in 20mm so I have no excuse.

  11. Wonderful work Phil, especialy the Flak36 88 base!
    The transports really add to the table layout, besides the practical use. Great stuff all round!
