I have finished the ARVN infantry platoon . Some of the less favourite units for Nam .
Picking up those brushes again.
I will use the blog to record my creations & the odd occasion I actually do some gaming.
I have always been inspired by the aesthetic side of gaming. Playing on well constructed terrain using excellently painted units is always a joy.

Yesterday saw James and I meet up to give a couple of new gangs a run out . My Van Saar have had a few final items added after picking up a few Forgeworld resin pieces leader and champion and arachnids.
The initial set up .
James’s efforts on the terrain easily fills a 4x4 space , and the use of various Express paints has speeded up gang productions.

I have picked up a few more vehicles to add from Full Metal Miniatures .
First up an M88 armoured recovery vehicle . I modelled it so the A frame jib could be deployed or down for moving . I used a Gringos figure wearing a baseball type cap for the commander . It’s carrying a large big box of local “33” beer on the back . I always like have engineering vehicles in the collection ss they are great for creating scenarios .

It’s been the first show of the year . Myself , James and Martin went to Newark to the Hammerhead show - we last did this in 2019 . It’s usually a real busy show , and it was great to see it back to some post COVID normality . We enjoyed some beer and curry last night too .
I had decided to just do something small and quick as the game was to be a participation one - as all the games at Hammerhead are .
Martin and I had done a raid the still scenario last year and we decided to go with that . A bit different as it’s out in the sticks . I built a new barn building this week to use for it , Martin had sorted the still .
